I use a little Sony streaming player box. Picked it up at Walmart for $75, let's me watch Netflix, Hulu, Youtube, Amazon on Demand, Vudu, plus tons of music services including Pandora and Last.fm.

Our DVD player streams Netflix if you're looking to upgrade you can look for one of those.

Some video games double as players for that as well

The new Apple TV device is the best in my opinion. Roku is also a very good one.

Apple TV

Roku

I agree Apple tv rocks and with your ipad you can use it as remote for the apple tv.

If you go to your Netflix profile there is a list of approved devices you can activate, We use our XBox, but there are other devices available like the Roku set top box that will also stream Youtube, Crackle, Hulu, and any number of other online content providers.

I LIKE IT. For $7.99 a month, the value can't be beaten.

ETA: Roku has no monthly fee (I don't think.) Once you buy it, you own it..

I took out a 30-day trial with Netflix and streamed it through my Xbox in HD, the quality was okay on the whole, but not really happy with the selection of movies. Most of them are too dated and not enough of the newer stuff. Also, it doesn't seem to be updated regularly so I pulled the plug!

If you aren't in the US the selection is quite limited. However, you can use IP address hiders/ VPN programs to make Netflix think you are signing on in the US and therefor have the US selection which is quite good.

Such as Canadian Netflix has maybe 1/3 the content of the US Netflix.

Then again Canadian Netflix has some things that the US doesn't. Mostly documentaries critical
of the US haha.

Is it possible to record from netflix using something like audials moviebox 9 ?

yes, audials moviebox does work if you want to record netflix streaming. i actually own this soft and did a couple of recordings myself. it's a video recording soft which allows you to do converting as well. with netflix for example, it works as a screen recorder (only on your pc or laptop and I think it works on a mac as well thought I wouldn't bet on it) so you basically play the netflix video and record it at the same time from your screen. you cannot install in on your playback device, there is no app for this kind of stuff but if you use it on your laptop and convert it, you can transfer it to your player afterwards. you may also want to check these how to steps: audials.com... in case you need more info.
cheers!
