    I'm trying to decide on which player to buy.
    I mostly want Netflix streaming, Hulu, and (most importantly), the ability to stream videos from my NAS via DLNA. Most of my videos are MPG, DIVX, XVID, or AVI. Don't care so much about live TV.

    Google TV looks nice but doesn't seem to support Hulu yet Maybe in the future? Is the Android market working yet?

    And Google TV also doesn't seem to support the videos I want to stream. The only thing I could find on Sony's site listed playable video formats as H.264/MPEG AVC. But perhaps there's an app for that in the future?

    Right now it's looking like Sony's blu-ray player offering (BDP-S570, without Google) is a better offering for me. Plays netflix, hulu, and the video formats I need. Am I missing something though?

    Any thoughts? Thanks!
