All disclaimers aside, Different Strings is kind of dated but really there's great stuff in there. Especially for someone who was a Moody Blues and Yes fan.

We have consistently found the PlayStation 3 (though I generally detest Sony) to have the best Netflix streaming app. It is the most reliable and somehow manages to get higher quality video at any given time than the AppleTV or TiVo Netflix apps.

You can definitely very effectively watch shows/movies on in a web browser on your computer or in the free iPhone/iPad app. I would guess if you had an AppleTV you could probably watch using the iPhone app but use AirPlay to send the output to your TV, but I have bit tried doing so with the netflix app on my phone.

A lot if modern TVs have built-in Netflix support, but ours is a little old for that.

Summary: PS3 if you have one. Otherwise, try devices you already own. If you don't own a device that can ebAbke you to watch on your TV, I'm buy super-impressed by the app on the AppleTV, so maybe try a Roku box? There's really cheap Roku boxes.
