Part of the new direction here at www.digitalconvertboxreviews.com is giving you the product reviews and advice you need to make the most of your digital world. In this economy, it can be hard to go out and splurge on the latest Blu-Ray player or bigscreen HD TV. But you can enjoy movies, some in HD quality, for a very low cost.

Netflix Instant Watch is a great technology. If you have a broadband connection, you can watch over 12,000 movies from Netflix’s collection on a Mac or PC in fullscreen. Often, these films are available in HD quality (and if not, they’re standard DVD quality). Netflix Instant Watch works just like regular Netflix – you have a separate queue that you can add movies to and then you can select which film or TV show to view.

Best of all, Netflix Instant Watch comes as a free add-on with any Netflix plan of $9/month or more. Which means that for only $9 a month, you can subscribe to Netflix’s unlimited DVDs, one-DVD-at-a-time mail plan and get Netflix Instant Watch at no added charge.

And, as a special bonus, you can watch Netflix Instant Watch films on your TV, including your HD TV if you’ve got an Xbox 360 with an Xbox Live Gold membership or if you purchase a low-cost Roku box (the Roku box also lets you view Amazon Video On Demand content on your TV). If you’re already rocking an HDTV and an Xbox 360, it’s an easy way to add a ton of content to your home for just $9/month. If you’re looking to purchase a Roku box, they can be had for $99 from Amazon. You’ll need to link your Roku to your Amazon account or Netflix account) in order to watch content on your TV (or link your Netflix account to your Xbox 360), but it’s a very simple, intuitive process.
