A new piece of electronic equipment

This week I ordered, received and installed a new toy. It is a Netflix player from Roku, a $100 box that connects to Netflix over the Internet and plays any of the films and TV shows that Netflix streams. This is limited to about 10,000 titles right now, mostly older or artsy. The list is growing pretty quickly though.

It was incredibly easy to set up and it works like a charm. We watched some of previous season's The Office and Weeds. Video and audio quality is good and there are no commercials.

If you already have a Netflix account, and we did, then this is a great little bargain. I think the idea of getting physical DVDs is on its way out the door!
