Default Inexpensive BD player with wifi and Netflix capable (Canada)

Thought I would post here to hopefully cut down some research time wading through all the choices.

My in-laws are sorrowfully behind the times with only a DVD player (that I actually believe is broken). Would like to get them a BD player, so that they could play movies for the kids. Plus, my mother-in-law was asking about how to get Netflix.

The catch is that their TV is in a spot where it would be very difficult to get a hardwire internet connection to the box.

So, I am trying to narrow down the possibles for a reliable BD player with wifi built in that won't break the bank. (3D capability is not required)

Brand is somewhat irrelevant; they do have a newer Samsung plasma TV (not with Smart Hub), so the interconnectivity features (READ: LESS REMOTES) of a Samsung player might be convenient, but price is king here.

Ideally looking to stay under $150; under $100 would be even better, but likely unrealistic. Looking to make a list so I can watch for upcoming sales online and in-store.

Any rec's are appreciated. Thanks!

I just picked up a Sony BDP-S390. Playing with some of the features last night, I'm quite impressed. Built in Wi-Fi, netflix capable, and an easy to use remote. It does use Sony's XMB that you find on the PS3, although dumbed down for the player, so it may be a little confusing, but just set it up for auto start, and there's no fooling with the menu's to play a disc. Only other thing that some may feel is a drawback, there's no display. Doesn't bother me too much, but it may bug some. $119.99 at BestBuy.
