How Do You Watch Netflix in Bed?

I used to watch Netflix/plex on an old laptop before I would go to sleep (I know, probably shouldn't be watching TV before bed, but who doesn't?)

The laptop bit the dust recently and now I'm trying to decide on whether to buy a cheap laptop, tablet or TV for my room. Only concerns are that I would like the ability to use my headphones to watch stuff late at night without waking others in the house. The option I am leaning towards at the moment is a second hand TV with a Chromecast + Google TV, as I've heard you can use BT headphones with it.

Any thoughts or recommendations?
