What is everyone currently using for streaming to tv?  I have used Boxee for years, but I guess they are defunct now.  My son said to use Chromecast.


Any other ideas or reviews of Chromecast?

Another blu Ray user. I use it for blu ray, DVDs (it plays both) and to stream Netflix. Works great for us.

I hadn't heard of chromecast so googled it. It looks good. If you don't need/want a bluray player to play DVDs or Blu Rays and you TV has a USB plug, the Chromecast looks just fine. You control it on your phone or IPad. My blu Ray has a separate remote, but I could program it into a universal remote too.

It seemed to me that netflix had many less titles that could be streamed so we got both.  We have a DVD player and streaming too.

I use the PS3 or Xbox console.  I broke down and subscribed to Hulu Plus, they have a great selection of British programming............
