Hi guys,

 

Currently building a new house, and with the advent of TVNZ live, I'm wondering if not getting an antenna installed at this stage is worth a try?  I've had the sparky run coax for future proofing, but given how little actual TV I watch, I was wondering if the live TV offerings from TVNZ/TV3 are viable alternatives?

 

I'll be buying an LG 55" C7 OLED, so would using these websites via WebOS be a pleasant experience or would I be better to go the Chromecast route?

As long as you have the option to add one later, don't bother if you don't need it now. Now is the time to run the cable though - perhaps some runs from the roof to a central networking location, then out to any place you may want a TV. Run some network cabling at the same time out to every room, and a conduit to bring fibre / copper in to this location from outside.
