What's the cheapest Netflix streaming device?
« on: February 17, 2011, 09:05:17 AM »
We're doing some financial restructuring at the house and decided to down-grade the cable tv. We're interested in doing Netflix stuff instead but want to stream it to a TV that won't have a game console hooked up to it. I'm interested in finding a cheap netflix streaming device.

http://shop.roku.com/Roku-Streaming-Player-Options-W5.aspx (the $59.99 one)

That's the cheapest I've found and it has Wifi which would be a plus but it's not required. Anyone have recommendations for other devices or horror stories on this one?

Please just walk away. I don't want to have to stand here and say something so awesome that I'll have to remember it the rest of the day. Thank you!

I ordered one of those roku boxes. Has a 30 day money back guarantee and it appears to have a lot of add-ons.
