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.

I use PlayOn - it is installed on my Quad-core PC downstairs and streams to my PS3 in the living room. It has Hulu, Netflix, Amazon, CBS and many others. There are plug-ins for other services, too. It does a good job of aggregating all of these services and presenting them in a nice interface. I was going to cancel my DirecTV. Instead, since I was out of contract, I called and negotiated my service to a basic package at half the price.

There is a PlayOn Beta app for the Roku. You'll have to dig around to get the code for that channel. It works alright - you can watch Hulu, etc.., with the PlayOn app. It's not as smooth as the other Roku channels, but that may be because of the PC that I have PlayOn installed on.
