We love watching streaming tv and movies on Netflix.  Mostly, we use it for our kids and we do it via our Wii, where I’ve downloaded the Wii software.

But we only have one Wii and three tvs, so that leaves other spots in the house where we don’t have Netflix available.

Enter Orb TV.  Here’s how it work.  The Orb TV is a small disc-sized product that connects to your TV.  It communicates wirelessly with your smart phone, home computer and Wi-Fi to reach the Internet.  Set it up with your Netflix TV and use the controller to access your Netflix!  Or use the controller to watch hundreds of shows via Hulu.  It’s a pretty cool idea for a piece of technology and a neat way to have another TV in your house that will display streaming tv.

I’m using my iPhone as the controller so when we’re using the Orb TV product, it’s like using my iPhone like a tv remote.  It’s pretty neat.  And the price point is pretty competitive with other Internet TV products available these days – for $99 you can purchase an Orb TV Player on Orb.com for $99.

They also have an Orb Music Player which sells for $69.
