The $99.99 Netflix Player connects to the internet and gives direct access to 12,000 movies on Netflix that you otherwise have to wait for until the mailman drops a DVD at your house.
You can hook up your TV via HDMI or RCA jacks, S-video and component video to the Roku Player.
The Netflix Player is a great gift for people who cannot plan ahead and forget to rent movies in time for them to arrive before the weekend. Until now they had to go to Blockbusters on Saturday to rent a movie. With the Netflix Player they can stay home where it is safe and cozy. The Netflix player does not change the monthly Netflix costs and users can continue to get DVDs by mail.
Movies and TV episodes that have been selected online in your Netflix Instant Queue appear right on the TV screen. With the included remote control they can be browsed through selected to watch right away.
Great gift for existing Netflix users who complain that they forget to pick DVDs to be sent. It is also a great gift to get somebody to start enjoying Netflix, which you already have for years.
