Netflix got it right with the Netflix Player by Roku, a compact $100 Internet appliance from the video service known mostly for snail-mailing DVDs. It's simple. It works. It's not a world beater but it's plenty good enough.
You can watch video streams of 10,000 items through the Roku box, just as you can using a Windows computer, as long as you have a modest monthly DVD subscription with Netflix. There's no extra charge for streaming content and no monthly limit.
