papakarl wrote:Hi. I have been researching the Netflix Player and trying to see if it will work with my Sprint Wireless Internet service. I want to watch the movies on my tv, so do I need any additional accessories to make it work. I just want to make sure I don't buy something and then realize I can't use it. So any info would be greatly appreciated. I am looking to buy this as soon as I get an answer. Also, I have been reading about a so-so picture quality. Is this improving? Thanks.

Perform a speed test on your laptop, see if you get that.
If you want to see what speed you can get from the Netflix servers, there is a speed test here:papakarl wrote:Sorry for the ignorance, but how do I perform a speed test on my pc?
