How are you streaming? (Poll)

With so many different ways to access Web-streaming services, what's your pick?

Streaming video, with its instant access and wide selection, has exploded over the past few years. Whether it's Netflix, which despite some recent fumbles still remains hugely popular, or other services like Hulu Plus, Amazon Instant Video, Vudu, and so on, more services and content have become available. Even better, the number of devices capable of streaming that content continues to grow.

With so many options available to stream Internet content, what's your pick?

In the digital media receiver category, you have Apple's beloved Apple TV, Roku , and a bunch of other options. Apple's access to iTunes and its huge library of TV shows and movies is nearly matched by Roku's (and a few others) access to Amazon's Instant Video library.

Then there are the all-in-wonders of the Xbox 360 and PS3. Most Blu-ray players have streaming options as well.

Lastly, most new TVs have streaming services built-in now too. David Katzmaier would rather have the features separate, preferring some manufacturer come out with "dumb" TVs .

What do you use for the majority of your streaming, and why?
