Thank you for the answer. With a little research I found out that the dongle for the Sony costs more than the Roku. Guess that it's the Roku for me.

You can get one of these: ZyXEL 300 Mbps Wireless N Access Point, Ethernet Client, Universal Repeater, and Range Extender (WAP3205) (or something similar). Cheaper than a Sony dongle (I have one of those stupid Sony blu-ray players, too) and will let you connect a second device without all the wires.

I keep looking at the Rokus, too, but really, between a blu-ray player (though Sony has lots of nice "apps" for their players) and the smart TV, I can't justify the [relatively negligible] cost of a Roku.

Don't forget to check on the Private channels that are available for quite a few free movies and tv shows. Nowhere TV , (code H9DWC) is a good one. It has lots of free channels in 1 place.

"I received a Sony blue-ray dvd player which includes the ability to stream netflick, Amazon etc.
What if anything is gained by purchasing a Roku instead? Thanks for any and all help"

About 350 channels and growing. With the Roku we don't even bother to fire up the DVD player to watch movies anymore. We are about to donate or put in deep storage the CD and DVD collections much like vinyl LPs when the CDs came along. Plus it saves me $60 per month by downgrading my cable TV service not including the few hundred dollars per year savings from not buying DVDs.

How about new channels, like ABC, CBS and CNN? Can we watch these with Roku?
