In this day & age of sooper-high-speed Internet access, we can take advantage of so many different streaming movie services. Netflix, Hulu, Crackle...even Amazon provide a wealth of programming for us to reminisce to.

I've got one of these doodads and combined with a networked media player (I use a Roku XD) can watch its content on any TV I attach to.
I've also added a neat little piece of software (named Plex Media Server) that allows me to watch my servers content on my iPhone or iPad anywhere that I have Internet access.
Reasonably easy to setup:
