"Well, only if I want to watch TV on my computer which I don't want to do. But I guess that is an option."
As Diane AKA Traska wrote, you can often use your computer to throw the video to your TV with a cable, so if they're close or your computer is portable that might be a way around it. Also, NetFlix has apps for all of the major game consoles, so if you have a PlayStation/Wii/XBox, you can do NetFlix that way too. And of course, you can access startrek.com through these systems too if you don't want to pay for a subscription just for ST.
