Media centre essentials

Tue Feb 16, 2016 6:42 pm

All right, I plan to buy a Pi Zero (I already have a B) for a media centre, but my budget is about £25
And I want to know the essentials.
So I know about mouse and keyboard, sd card and power adapter, but what amount of storage should I have in my sd card just for live tv, spotify, youtube, iTunes and Amazon Prime.
Also how would I get my Virgin Media HDMI to broadcast to my pi's live feed?
Thanks,
Sam

A Zero with the required extras ie USB HUB etcetera, may not be cost effective, a RPi B+ is £20.00
