Well, this will change things.
NetFlix announced today that its NetFlix Player is available for $99 -- connect this to your television, and you can stream movies and TV shows directly to your TV.
When you want, choosing the movies or shows that you want to see from the NetFlix library of over 10,000 selections and growing. The library pops up on your TV screen. That's right - your TV, not your PC.
No mailing, no returning to the store. You do, of course, have to be a NetFlix subscriber (memberships start at $4.95/month).
For details on all this (including all the technical stuff) check out the detailed press release, issued today.
