I am interested in watching Netflix movies streamed from on-line to my HDTV but do not have a game console.
I could use my computer, but don't wish to do that. So, can anyone advise me as to what is the best "Netflix ready device" out there. The Netflix page states that "Netflix ready device" can be used but does not explain what one is.
That is great to know. Thanks. We use it every night in the master bedroom, and Netflix doesen't even know the difference, sooo.....I guess I will keep using it until Netflix finds out that it is not supported.
tonyS, yes the Wii can do netflix. you have to go into your netflix account online and request a wii disk that they will mail you. then you use that in your wii to connect to their site and watch movies.
I only have the Wii fro netflix so cannot compare it to other devices. I do use component cables on the Wii vs the RGB that came with it though. I find it works just fine for my needs.
I use a PS3 in the bedroom with wireless internet. For the living room I use an Insignia bluray player. To get internet to the Insignia bluray player I use 2 Netgear XAV101 that plug into electical outlets. I have no problems streaming with either of these players.
It is easy to use and easy to set-up. You can search on screen for movies and browse your queue.
It operates of your home Wi-Fi network and it has a lot of other "apps" it can run like Pandora (for free digital music stations). I use my Roku every day and have considered canceling my cable subscription as a result.
I tried the Blue-Ray player but it was a lot more expensive and I wasn't ready to buy a Blue Ray player yet. Also, there is a cheaper version of the Blue-Ray with Netflix streaming but it doesn't run on Wi-Fi you had to buy a seperate adapter.
