Welcome to the forum pmac0014.
The type of device you are looking for is called a media player. One of the most popular of these is called the Western Digital TV Live Hub. Some of the WD TV Live devices use external hard drives, but this one comes with its own internal drive.
You can see it here at Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/Western-Digital-Media-Center-Full-HD/dp/B004GK0GKO
You’ll have to rip your movies on the computer and transfer them onto this device.
By the way, please don’t post in all capital letters. This is an indication that you are shouting, and is considered rude on internet forums.
