For many, Netflix is a must-have app. It's an essential for Blu-ray players, TVs, game consoles and other home theater components, and it seems to be present in nearly every piece of new gear that hits the market. It's not surprising that other companies want to jump in on it.
Streaming is serious business, and Netflix wants to stay at the top. That's why, according to the New York Post, they're willing to shell out as much as $100,000 for currently airing shows. That's a hundred grand per episode, not per show.
Even four years after its release, the PS3 is the Blu-ray player to beat at its price point. It boasts solid performance, decent upscaling and the best record of regular upgrades out of any player out there. This year alone Sony has added disc-free Netflix, Hulu Plus
and 3D capability
and now Vudu is coming to the system.
Simple wireless HD may still be a little way off, but high-definition streaming from device to device is here. Netgear says that the new 3DHD streaming tech it developed can deliver flawless 1080p and even 3D streams.
