My Netflix player is coming!!

I'm so excited, I can hardly stand it!! I just ordered a Netflix Player from Roku! I can't wait for it to arrive. The second I learned about it on Hacking Netflix, I had to have one!! I might never watch a DVD again. This little box will allow me to watch Netflix instantly on my regular TV, via my home WiFi Internet connection. I won't be tied to my computer any more. I have 56 movies in my Watch Instantly queue, but I'll be adding more soon.

This means it won't matter if I have a Mac or a PC, I'll be able to Watch Now without my computer at all!

Wow, this signals the end of an era for me. No more cable TV, no more broadcast TV, no more DVR, no more DVDs. Well, maybe not yet. There are still 444 movies in my queue that are available only on DVD.

I will let you know how it works.


  1. Take a deep breath. Let me know when your pulse is below 100 bpm.

  4. I want to know if it is possible to load an entire movie to the box before playing.

    I expect that connection issues would cause the movie to stall.

    One could also load a movie by the internet connection and move the box to the TV for viewing. I do not have a wireless network and buying one would add to the cost.

  5. Nope, as far as I know, there is no way to store anything on the box.
