Netflix_Player_by_Roku_1 This was on my list of things to get my wife for Christmas before finances got tight: the Roku player.

My wife is a Netflix addict.  She watches really bad horror movies constantly with their streaming service. Between the content on Netflix and the content on Hulu, there’s been very little reason for her to turn on the TV much this season.

Word comes now that the player is releasing support for HD resolution come first quarter of 2009.

With all the new content showing up there, this $100 investment is getting harder and harder not to make.
