    I've had many and after problems with all I settled on a second hand ps3 superslim for under £100 off ebay.the best thing is with ps3 if you know the tricks you can change settings and get American netflix which has ten times the content of the rubbish uk version!

    Take your pick, there's ps3, roku, wdtv, Chromecast or most smart blu ray players will have it built in.

    As does Apple TV, which IMO has the best interface.

    can't say i've used one, I'd say it's a sound bet if the OP has any iOS devices. There's always chromecast as well if you have any android or iOS devices, it's a very simple interface of find it on your phone or tablet and press cast and the film appears on screen, I believe this may also work on Rokus as well.

    If the majority of the videos streamed are different formats, the WDTV Live caters for the most IMO, but if the movies are, in say, mostly MKV formats, then any of the players mentioned should be fine.
    On demand content maybe something else to consider, Again, the WDTV Live does well here.

    Saying that, having a PS3 means they can play games too!
