I'm new here, a recent convert to XBMC. I hopped over from my long run down the path of WMC->MediaBrowser->XBMC driven by the spouse approval factor and my drive to tweak and customize to my liking.
That being said, we are evaluating cutting the cord from the big ol' cable company whom, on a monthly basis, rape and pillage our bank account armed only with bundles, advertising, and syndicated content delivery.
In my hunt to cut the cord, I have not found a true wife approved system to display all the local content in conjunction with streaming content available. I love the idea of PseudoTV, but I did not find a way to import content from Netflix, Hulu, Amazon, Crackle.. you name it.
What we want:
an EPG for everything local, streaming queues, other online content, and Live TV from OTA Antenna feed potentially?
Back to back play -- This doesn't need to be of a single show, season, tv, etc. EPG populates randomly, sometimes it'll bunch shows togethers, others who knows.
"ON-Demand" type feature, yes yes, all the content in the world is available at your fingertips through countless add-ons. No, we want ONE addon to drag all that content in, and boom done. You want movies? Ok go to movies, and behind the scenes you're pulling from every account you have and your local storage and showcasing it. You want Tv? Same.
To sum it up? Complex back end polling several sources, "scheduling", etc with a super intuitive front end that just displays it all.
I tried PlayOn.. yea that's great except no EPG, and the quality looked like trash. I don't care about streaming this shit around the house, i'll build boxes to run my configuration locally with all the money i'm saving by not tossing it to the cable company.
Like I said originally, I'm new to XBMC, maybe this has been figured out and I'm dense. Maybe not. If not, perhaps I will take on this task on my own as I have the skills.

The short version is it doesn't exist yet. PseudoTV will do all the muxing of channels and etc, but there isn't currently a system for querying all installed addons.
That being said, I'm working on that very thing in Waldo: https://github.com/bstrdsmkr/plugin.video.waldo
It's coming along nicely, but isn't quite there yet

PseudoTV should work with Hulu, at least.
