You don't need one though if you have a Wii or other game console. Also a Blu-ray, Tivo or internet connected HD system will get you connected.
Yes, you do need one. Free channels are not available on those other networking boxes. If you are only using Netflix, then yes, but you are missing out on lots of free movies, documentaries, live streaming,etc,etc. Buy the cheap one,$59. Other models are $79,$99.
Go here to see the channel list.
This link is broken, either the page no longer exists or there is some other issue like a typo.
Some of the channels you have to go to the web site to see what they are actually showing for free.http://www.crackle.com/
