Should I get a blu-ray player even though the TV is analog? And would it even work?

My dvd player has died. At first i was going to get a cheap dvd player to replace it. The tv is about 15-20 years old although it still works great with no issues. The stereo setup is about 10-15 years old (both were top of the line when bought new and both still do everything well). But i have a bit of money and i could maybe afford to buy a blu-ray player.
Now why would i do this? Well because i want to stream Netflix movies. Also over the next year or so i will be upgrading the tv and maybe the stereo (though i love this stereo system). So when i update the tv i will be able to see the improved quality with blu-rays and in the meantime i can enjoy Netflix and dvds. Perhaps. That's if it even works. The tv does have digital cable attached although for the life of me i have yet to see how i can get a dvd player to attach when the tv is already attached. My old dvd player died when analog died and my old old dvd player that didn't need the signal is just about dead after not being used in so long. So..
1. Should i get the cheap dvd player and wait to get the blu-ray player when (if) the tv is upgraded?
2. Or would it be harmless to get it now? Would it work?
