Microsoft has added Netflix accessibility directly into the Windows Media Center application, providing a Netflix section under the TV+Movies tab. This means that users are able to not only stream movies and TVs instantly through the application, but also manage both their instant and DVD queues, and search/filter searches through the entire Netflix library without having to open up a browser to access the site first. Available for Windows Vista Home Premium or Ultimate Vista but unfortunately not XP.
It looks like both HP's MediaSmart Connect line and Linksys' Media Center Extenders have been discontinued. It seems the stand alone media streaming units didn't perform as well as the manufacturers had expected with consumers for the most part choosing other ways to stream their content from their PC to their televisions. Both the PS3 and Xbox 360 allow you to stream video and audio content from your PC as well as offering online services the stand alone units didn't. Newer Blu-ray player like the LG BD390 also include media streaming as well. I guess with just about every unit in your television cabinet capable of streaming content a $300 stand alone unit just wasn't needed.
