In 2008, Roku was the first company to offer a dedicated Netflix set-top box that connects the TV to the home network for video streaming. Subsequently, Netflix streaming has been built into other set-top boxes such as Apple TV, Roku and Fire TV, as well as Blu-ray players and the TV sets themselves. Since the demise of physical discs has been long predicted, Netflix ("network movies") was a fitting name for the service. See Hulu, VUDU, Apple TV, Roku, Fire TV, Android TV and smart TV.
