For our second gift guide installment, we look at things to pleasantly pass the winter hours – entertainment, games, and of course, all things bacon!
Panasonic Blu-ray Player
The Panasonic DMP-BD65 Blu-ray player gives you a choice. You can watch discs, or content from VieraCast, YouTube, and Netflix.
If you’re not looking for Blu-ray capability, maybe the Apple TV is what you want. You can rent movies and TV shows from iTunes, as well as access Netflix, YouTube, and Flicker.
If you’re looking for an inexpensive streaming box, and are happy to avoid iTunes, give the offerings from Roku a look. They start at $59 and bring in content from Netflix, Amazon Video on Demand, Hulu Plus, and Pandora.
One of the newest and most interesting additions to the streaming box market brings together great options from all the other contenders. The Boxee Box has TV shows, movies, Pandora, and over 400 3rd party apps, with the promise of Netflix, Hulu and Roku content by the end of the year.
With all these streaming options pulling from Netflix, you definitely want to think about giving access to the service as a gift, either the regular account, or the new streaming-only option.
Yes, it’s a show about a serial killer, but don’t let that put you off! Dexter is really well done!
