Roku is a little box (yes, we know that already) which allows you to stream tons of entertainment to your TV instantly, without a PC.  You can have instant access to literally thousands of different movies, sports, TV shows and more, and more choices are being added all the time. Roku can be used with Netflix, Amazon Video, Pandora, HuluPlus  (coming soon to a Roku box near you), MP3 Tunes, MLB.TV, plus a whole lot more, you name it, you can watch it with your little Roku box without needing to pay any extra fees. Some are free, and for example the ones which do have subscription charges like Netflix (starting at $8.99 per month), there is no extra charge for Roku.

What is Roku?

So, what do you get with your Roku, and does it take a masters degree in computer science to get the darned thing working? The answer to the last question is definitely no, read on. . .

  • Roku is compatible with just about any TV going
  • With every Roku you get: remote control, composite AV cable, Two AAA batteries, power adapter, guide to getting started, 30 day money back guarantee and a full one years warranty – can’t go wrong then really can you?
  • Plug it in to your TV
  • Add the Roku to your home network, it doesn’t matter whether you’re wired or wireless, and there are some clear on screen instructions which make everything oh so easy.
  • You will need a high speed internet connection to be able to utilize Roku, with a minimum speed of around 1.2 Mbps. You might also need a wired or wireless router if you can’t connect directly to the cable or the DSL modem.

Your Roku really can be up and running in about 5 minutes, then you can sit back and enjoy your favorites.

And that’s all there is to it, you can have instant access to the biggest collection of entertainment available.
