Netflix Player by Roku

Netflix Player by Roku allows you to instantly stream movies and TV episodes from Netflix to your TV. It is as small as a book and retails for $99.99. Even though the videos are streamed, you can still pause, fast forward, and rewind. The player is also Wi-Fi enabled. Besides the one time cost, there isn't any change to the normal Netflix fees.

Also, according to the manufacturer it is guaranteed to be compatible with any TV set (connecting to RCA Jacks, S-video, etc.). My sister has a TV from the 1960's. I wonder if Netflix would honor their guarantee that it works on "any TV".

More information can be read in the Roku Press Release from today 5/20/2008.
