Multimedia, AV My husband stopped trusting me with his PS3 after I burned three Netflix PS3 software disks (a known problem), so he asked me to get my Netflix kick with another device (that was before the disk-less PS3 solution). So I bought the $99 Roku XD|S, the highest Roku model, a Linux-based video streaming TV device.

The Roku has access to over 100 channels. Most are public but some are private. Finding the list of private channels is a 5 second search on the Roku forum. Many of the private channels will only appeal to a select few, but there is something for everyone. If you don't find the exact channel you want you can download the SDK and make your own. My Roku is one of the best purchases I made in the last couple of years. It is part of the reason I was able to dump cable a year ago.
