Chromecast - a $35 (plus shipping/tax) HDMI dongle for streaming video to your TV. It will stream from Chrome, Youtube, and Netflix. They same more to come - Amazon maybe? You can control it from a PC or tablet. Buy now and you get 3 months of Netflix free. I have a Wii for Netflix in our living room, but the TV in our bedroom isn't connected at all.

I'm in for one.

harrymccracken Now Google’s unveiling Chromecast, a tiny HD-streaming gizmo you plug into a TV’s HDMI. Yup, another Google approach to Net-enabling TVs.

  1. Google dropped the Netflix promo a day after launch!

    1. They must have gotten all the orders and buzz they wanted! Glad I pulled the trigger. Normally, I have to think about these things for a while.

  2. Actually they will honor the 3 month promotion. They are completely sold out of units. I wouldn't worry about not getting the free 3 months of Netflix.
