(Apologies if this question has been asked before, but I couldnt find what I am looking for elsewhere.)

I would link to watch content from the internet on my TV. Not just the official sources like BBC iPlayer and Netfilx etc, but from any site that serves up content (I.e. any site where I currently watch video on my PC I want to be able to watch it on a TV). I.e. a box that contains a web-browser that I plug into the HDMI connector of my TV.

Need full HD resolution without dropping frames etc. And is fairly cheap (< $150). Fairly easy to use (I'd prefer not to have to switch on the PC in order to stream stuff to the TV.)

  • My PC is not DNLA compatible
  • Not sure if Google's chrome cast would do the job but I dont think its available in Britain yet anyway.
  • I've looked at a lot of the HDMI plug in boxes like the Roku etc, but I dont think you can get content from any website?
  • I was thinking of buying an android phone as some of them have mini-HDMI or video-over-USB. But does flash work? And can they do full HD at full frame rate?
  • Android mini-PCs - similar to above, I guess.
  • I really need to also get a new TV so maybe it would be cheaper overall to get a smart TV - can anyone tell me if they allow you to get content from any website?
