Sony has brought out just the right thing for all such users - the Sony SMPN200 Network Media and Internet Streamer.

With built-in Wi-Fi connectivity, you can also access content wirelessly and connect securely to the Internet. The HDMI output from the streamer will fit into any HD ready TV or monitor.
