    Just one, a Panasonic BR player.

    Quality isn't HD, so I don't want to watch it.

    I have used Netflix on the Samsung BD-5500C Blu-Ray player, PS3 and XBox 360. Although I have the activation disk for the Wii I haven't used it. I never watched on the computer either.

    Netflix is one of the reasons why people are disconnecting from Cable and DTH, as the 2Q10 earning reports indicated. I received a call from DirecTv yesterday, offering the Premiere package + NFL Sunday, for 60 dollars a month for the next five months, after which I can revert to my current package (i don't know if I would have had to ReUp for another 24 months, as I said I wasn't interested). Perhaps we have seen the inflection point after which we start seeing fewer and fewer PayTV subscribers.

    The problem with Netflix is the streaming library is minuscule and does not offer CC. They also don't have your local sports team.

    1) ROKU
    2) PS3
    3) WII
    4) PlayON
    5) iPhone

    By far, the best experience is with ROKU. I think ROKU will be the device that leads me to a home without "pay" TV once the kids are out of the house. I also have a NetGear DLNA player which will let me do HULU through PlayON, so I'd be set. HTPC, HULU, NetFlix, OTA and MLB.TV is about all I'd need.

    Those that insist on sports will have no choice but PayTV. For everyone else, many options are available. But as more and more subs leave PayTV, those that remain will have to pay higher monthly prices. ESPN charges 4 dollars a month because so many subscribe to PayTV. As more leave PayTV, ESPN will ask for ever larger rate hikes, and those that remain will have to bear the burden.

    I wouldn't expect Netflix to offer any sports team unless they appeared in a movie. :D

    So which devices are "best" for Netflix, and why? (HD, interface, etc) I was surprised to read that BR-dvd players don't offer HD quality.

    ??? Where did you hear that? I have a cheapo Insigna BD player and it plays the HD content from NetFlix just fine.

    When I start a Netflix movie on my Samsung BD-C5500, it runs a bandwidth test and adjusts the picture quality accordingly. I get the HD indication sometimes, but often it is not (still a sharp picture, however).

    I use my TV as my Netflix device most of the time because it offers the best picture (i.e. "HD" quality). But, the Netflix interface is sparse. It only lets you select and play things that are in your Instant Queue.

    The WII has a much better interface, allowing you to browse "recent" additions by category as well as recommended titles and recently viewed titles. But, the picture quality from the WII isn't as good.

    I have just three Netflix devices activated right now - the TV, WII, and my PC. But, I have several other things that can play Netflix streams including two Blu-Ray players.

    I have the 360, the Wii and a Mac using Boxee hooked up to Netflix.

    The 360's Netflix interface beats them all, hands-down. Boxee's app is slow and sometimes questionable. The Wii's is PAINFULLY slow. The 360 is fast and has a lot of selection options, not just those in your queue.
