FWIW, I LOOOOOOVVVVEEEEE my Roku. It does Netflix, it does Amazon, it does MLB.tv, it does Pandora, it does You Tube, it does a whole lot of stuff and more coming all the time.
All for a hundred bucks give or take (depending on model) plus whatever fees the provider like Netflix has (if any).
The interface is super simple. The gadget is reliable and the PQ is reasonably good. (And the box itself is pretty small.)
Other implementations I have seen (Tivo and Playon through mediashare) don't hold a candle to the Roku. Roku's abilities are a big reason why I did not keep my Tivo when I changed internet and cable from Comcast to Fios.
