Betelnut, do you have a wireless network at home? If you do, Chromecast is another option. It's $35, and plugs into the HDMI port on your television (plus a power source). It basically just hooks your tv up to your wireless network, and allows you to stream Netflix (plus a few other things) as well as anything on the internet (using the Google Chrome browser). If you don't already own a cord to connect your laptop to your television, Chromecast might end up being about the same price and, depending upon your setup, might be easier to use (since it doesn't require a wired connection from your computer to your television).
Lots of Blueray players have the ability to stream things like Netflix, but there are a lot of other ways to manage it.
