    Been a surface fan for a while. Have the surface 3 and Microsoft dock. Hooked it up to my TV and using it to stream my Bell tv service instead of buying another setup "cable box". Bell Canada lets you watch live TV via an App or through the web. Also hooked it up to a separate USB DAC to my stereo and using Groove music - the touchscreen makes accessing songs and playlists much easier than my previous HTPCs and mouse/keyboard combo. Interestingly audio gets to the TV somehow through the display port to HDMI connector from the dock. Quite a clean setup.
