The Netflix Player - by Roku

The Netflix Player - by Roku is just the sort of device I've been waiting for and its capable of streaming HD content - wirelessly.  Luckily, I've got a Ethernet drop behind the TV!  It would have been nice if they spent a little more time on the form factor to make it look less like a black brick.

Of course, the dream was to have Netflix stream directly to my XBox 360.  (WARNING: Complete hypothesis alert!) I mean, Netflix already has what appears to be customized version of Windows Media Player that they require you to use installed inside of Internet Explorer.  What so hard about delivering that on the XBox 360?

All that being said, I think I know what I want for this years Fathers day!


  1. That was hilarious..!

  2. I've added the Roku Linux machine to the rest of the Linux machines in my house. Now if they would just let me stream to my work Laptop, which is Linux too - that'd be awesome.
