I guess technically what I want is a "streaming video player." I need to kick this cable habit and switch to netflix. The question is this:
Which streaming player-thingie is the best value? I don't need to be doing anything fun or exciting- play streaming movies, thats about it. I know the roku starts at around $60, but would it be just as good to get a used xbox or something of the sort? I have no interest in gaming (I dont think) but if the xbox (or similar) is easier to operate and/or has other benefits, i would invest in that instead.
You can do this with an xbox, no? Or just a Wii?
This is how little I know about this.
I do already have a (shitty) dvd player. Again, if something like an xbox or something would play dvds better (like playing burned dvds, for example) that would be an additional selling point. I have no emotional attachment to my $19.99 generic-brand dvd player.
