I used to have a portable CD player when I was a kid in the 90s.
At my house now, our living room TV is hooked up to an HTPC with a Blu-ray drive, but we also have an XBOX360 (DVD) and PS3 (DVD/Bluray) right next to it. The kitchen TV has a built-in DVD player. The bedroom TV has a Blu-ray/DVD player. If you want to watch DVDs on a respectable screen size, you're either going to have to hook a computer up to your TV or have a standalone player.
