anyone have or tried the roku netflix player?

If you have netflix unlimited service and broadband you can use it to stream movies/shows real time. Supposedly they are adding the ability to stream from other sources (speculation is comedy central, msnbc, hulu, yuotube, and others)

I'm considering it as an alternative to television service. I can still get the major networks over the air and use this for most other things. I don't particularly watch television anyway. I have no problem waiting for DVD releases of decent shows years after they air. I figure it'd save a ton over the basic offers from cable or satellite providers and I get to see more stuff that I like.

PS3/XBox360 can do all of that, plus you can play games on them.

man, I watched a couple of movies and a TV series on netflix's watch instantly and Sunflower billed me an extra $100 for bandwidth. That's the only thing I could think of that would cause that. I play Warhammer online a little bit, but damn I didn't think I was streaming/playing games that freaking much. So I upgraded to the Gold account and the internet is only a tiny bit faster, but I guess I'll see where I'm at

not a chance....and HD movie is only a few gigs....unless you watched 100 of them, your ISP wouldn't even notice.

oh, I was talking about streaming them. I was billed over $100 for bandwidth last month and that's the only thing I can think of, unless someone is stealing my cable or something. I probably watched 3 or 4 movies off of my xbox and almost all of Dead Like Me season 1
