I’ve heard plenty of Blu-Ray players that come with Netflix streaming support. But unfortunately, never heard of a DVD-only player that supports Netflix.
They typically cost $ 300-400.
The possible alternative to that is an Xbox 360. It plays DVD’s, has a built in hard drive so you can store music / videos on it, and has Netflix support. (not to mention games). Xbox’s are really cheap nowadays and they make pretty decent units for home entertaintment. You can hook up a keyboard, wireless LAN dongle and remote control to it and turn it into a media center system.
Asides from access to your MSN Messenger, Xbox will soon have Facebook and Twitter integration so its a good system to get if you are into the social networking stuff.
The even cheaper alternative is to just get a Roku Netflix streaming box for $ 99
and then buy yourself a cheap $ 30 DVD player.
