Google has a new product called Chromecast, $35 retail.
Plugs into your TV's HDMI port and gets online wirelessly.

"The 2-inch, black plastic dongle connects to a television set via the
HDMI port to give access to all kinds of Internet stuff, including
YouTube videos, movies and TV shows from Netflix (NFLX), and,
coming soon, music from Pandora (P). It can also pull down almost any
other Web content that’s viewable on a computer in Google’s Chrome

No remote with it, you control it with your phone, tablet, or laptop or
netbook or PC if you have one in the living room.  Or just a phone if
you don't want to own any other device but you still need wifi.

Article from Yahoo Finace[

Here's the link to buy one at the Google play store:
Product and order page

I had one in my cart but took it out.  I sure would like to see one in
action but I have no smartphone, can't use the tablet, and have the
new netbook hooked to the TV now and don't need it.  I may still
get one just to try out but not sure.

Delivery in 3 to 4 weeks.

Yeah, that looks intriguing. We have a blu ray dvd for our main TV and it already allows us to do all that. We rarely use it for that purpose. Might get a new TV for my office at some point and possibly give it a try. 35 bucks is worth a shot maybe.
