The low inventory could be due to the popularity of the Roamio OTA, which doesn't have streaming capabilities built in. Don't forget that there were a lot of Aereo users who lost their mobile access to OTA broadcasts, and a Roamio OTA with stream is arguably one of the best alternatives. Also, the Stream is in stock at my local Frys for $129—if they are truly impossible to find online or in some local markets, I wouldn't mind picking one up and shipping it somewhere. UPS ground or USPS priority shipping would almost certainly be less than $50. $190 for a Stream is borderline price gouging. Edit: It appears my local Frys has ONE stream in stock, so finding one currently available for $129 may be harder than I realized. Maybe I should buy it and sell to the highest bidder online!
