This works, as does buying a smart tv.  If you have a game console, that
also works for Wii, Xbox 360, and PS3.  However, certain little black boxes,
such as the Roku boxes, work, too, and these are cheaper if you already have
a Blu-Ray Player, starting at around US $39.99.    I bet they run with an
embedded Linux, too. 

Of course OP may have wanted to use his laptop, in which case none of that
will be helpful.
