    • A. No, cable service is not required. You must have wireless internet access though. If your internet access was provided by your cable company, you'll need a new provider.

    • A. No you do not have to have cable to use a Roku. You do however need high speed internet service. Anything over 1.5mbps will work but if you want to watch HD movies in 1080p you'll want a 5mbps DSL level of service. The faster your internet service, the better. There are a handful of channels such as HBO-GO and the new FOX channel that require you to have a cable TV account subscription to their channels before you can get the ROKU content for those channels. There's enough to watch on Roku without those few cable subscription dependent channels though.

    • A. Roku LT does not need computer after set up is done. Use Roku remote to select channels and watch on TV. Roku needs wi-fi high speed atleast 2Mbps. If you use computer on wifi at the same time, you must have atleast 5-15 Mbps wi-fi speed internet service to surf and watch streaming programs via Roku LT

    • A. Hi Deb, In most cases the answer to your question is yes! However it sort of depends on a couple of things. Most important is your Internet service speed. 1.5mbps is the minimum to use a Roku for streaming 720p HD video at 720p. That is just barely enough to give you 720p HD streaming. Faster Internet is better though. Also it depends on what exactly you are "surfing" on the net. For example, if you are downloading a big file or playing an interactive online role playing game on a computer either activity will take more bandwidth than checking your email or shopping online at Walmart and could cause a bandwidth deficiency. Whenever there is a bandwidth deficiency the Roku picture freezes and a "LOADING PLEASE WAIT" message appears. Your Wi-Fi could be old and slow too. So answering "YES" depends on several factors. You can test your Wi-Fi speed by using a laptop/notebook/tablet/etc at several sites including http://www.speedtest.net/ and you should do that to make sure you have bandwidth on your Wi-Fi to handle streaming video. Remember 1.5mbps MINIMUM and more is better! I have 5mbps DSL. I watch Roku provided content extensively while surfing the net with very few problems. The times I've seen the "Loading-Please Wait" message from a Roku it was because my Internet provider was having issues which I verified by checking my laptop. Lots of time entire networks slow down. Black Friday and Cyber Monday the entire net bogs down for example. Also make sure your Wi-Fi is SECURE and password protected otherwise the neighbors are stealing it. Before upgrading to 5mbps DSL my previous DSL line was 1.5mbps and it also worked pretty much as good as the 5mbps even when surfing the net except when I was trying to watch something in HD which 1.5mbps is barely adequate to stream.

    In an effort to discontinue paying for poor programming I simply don't watch and enjoy a more flexible way of selecting programming of interest, I decided to give Roku a shot. Fortunately, the experience has been great! Essentially, you're transferring programming found primarily on the internet onto your television. While some would prefer to simply watch programming on their computers, having the option of viewing on a larger screen (for a reasonable price of $50) is hard to beat. Although the LT is considered "entry level", a close comparison will reveal there's not a great deal to be gained by falling for the bells and whistles of the more expensive units. Each of these players provide very extensive programming options and well over 600 channels. While membership fees are required for some programming (Netflix, Amazon, etc.), the monthly cost is minimal per membership. Assuming you have a means by which to watch free local channels (digital tuner, etc.), I don't really think much is lost by cutting the cord and freeing yourself from overly expensive cable and satellite services.

    I have been using my computer to watch a large portion of my TV for quite some time and it was an acceptable alternative to cable or satellite service, however it did have it's short comings. Then my sister bought a Roku player and I was so impressed that I immediately bought one myself. There are an amazing number of choices out there, some free, some that are available by subscription and still more that are available at reasonable pay per view rates. Unlike the computer I seldom run into a buffering problem and some of the available streaming services are only available through a player, not by computer. I still have to watch some of my Hulu programs on the computer as they don't have permission to deliver some shows through a player to the TV but it is only a minor issue. Set up is incredibly simple and takes less than ten minutes. Even the technologically challenged will find it a simple, easy to follow process. I would recommend this product to anyone interested in having a wide choice of TV programming without the high cost of cable or satellite.

    Roku LT

    Awesome product, connect to your wi-fi and it just works, if you buy this ROKU, you do have to sign up on-line with Roku.com. The remote is great, I have no problem with the remote even the unit it is behind glass in a cabinet, The unit is so small, it takes up no space, you can place it on the corner of another device and keep it away from the heat given off by your cable box etc; about the size of a Hockey puck, only very light weight There a tons of apps to scan through, most are free! I have the LT on a CRT, 480p on a CRT but the ROKU is able to be switched up too 780p if you have an LCD/LED TV. The remote is very small light weight, watch it, you can lose it in couch cushions easily. I have read tons of reviews of other TV convertors and everyone seems to come back to ROKU, it works like a charm! For those that do not have a credit card, you do need one when you sign up on line, in case you use VUDU, NETFlix, pay channels, you can call Roku and they will make an exception for you if you do not have a credit card, a friend used this method. ROKU"S customer service is excellent if needed. I bought an LT for someone that still uses a CRT TV and his also work's like a charm.

    It picked up the signal in our house right off, which was great...the signal is not that strong in that part of the house, but we have not had any buffering issues yet. I would recommend having your laptop handy when you are setting it up the first time as there are a lot of things you have to do back and forth. As for the channels you have access to, if your cable company is on the approved list that works with roku, you are set and will have access to a lot more content thru the roku, mine is not, so it really limited the number of channels we have access to. We do have netflix, and that was easy to set up, pandora was easy to set up. There are a lot of channels that you can pay to play movies, I'm just hoping it isn't too easy to gain access to them and we wind up with a bunch of movies that the kids charge to my credit card, that remains to be seen...So far I am really liking it, and would suggest it as an alternative to hooking up a tv thru a game console.

    The Roku LT has not disappointed. It picks up our wireless signal with no issues. Not being one who can really tell the difference between images on SD, 720p or 1080p, I can see no reason to spend more for a higher HDTV version. No buffering experience with the wi-fi, so no real need to pay more for the ethernet option, either. The selection of channels available on Roku has pretty much rendered our cable/satellite service useless. Tons of free channels on Roku and the amount of money we pay for the paid channels THAT WE WANT (not paying for dozens of channels we don't care for or have to block) is a fraction of what we had to pay for cable and satellite. The interface is simple and easy to understand, as is the remote control. We love our Roku's and this is the third one we have added.

    Our family really enjoys the options we can have with roku. It's hard to find good tv anymore so we have resorted to this. My kids can watch tv without me worrying about commercials and shows that are inappropriate. I myself like the ease of use and setup only took about 15 minutes. We will be canceling our cable due to the high cost and limited variety. One thing to keep in mind before purchasing is to make sure you have a great Internet service. My parents ,who also have a roku, live out in the country and the service is not that great so shows tend to stop and reload which causes frustration.

    I moved into a new place and decided that instead of getting shackled to Comcast again I would try out the Roku box. Initially, I only watched Netflix and that was it. Then recently i found myself with more time on my hands and it seems like everyday they add some new channels. They have MHz Networks (which is news from all over the world), a bunch of christian channels including Daystar ( which i dig), and they have CNBC, WSJ TV , The Economist Audio, BBC ( all of the stuff I like) I also get a channel which broadcasts Caribbean TV and stuff from Jamaica ...they even have TED.....I mean TED!!! fricking awesome! Its like everyday they keep adding the stuff i love which i previously had to sit and watch hunched over my laptop. I still cant believe the box only cost me [$] bucks! I am thinking that even if you guys ( yes I am talking to you now Roku) charge $8 per month (like netflix) I will happily pay it as it is way cheaper than Comcast and allows me to watch only what I pay for. Awesome.

    Since I don't want to pay for another cable box my tv upstairs has sat dark for a couple years. I finally got the Roku because it was just too good a price to pass up and now my tv gets not only Netflix and some other free tv/movie channels, but I can get radio stations including Pandora while I work. I had gotten one of the Rokus several years ago and sent it right back because it just didn't have the throughput to handle the streaming in an acceptable fashion. Don't know if the streaming services are better or the Roku is that much better, but now it is awesome.

    I have completely replaced my cable box with my Roku and my computer/iPad. I had compared Roku to AppleTV for a very long time, and ultimately went with Roku because I have so much invested in Amazon cloud (music, etc.) and I wanted to be able to access it. Also, the price and setup was easy. My boyfriend had an older Roku and I liked it, but the controls were sometimes unresponsive and Hulu completely wigged it out if you did anything but hit "Play" - any kind of rewind or ffwd would freeze it so bad you'd have to unplug and reboot. It's a little better now but not much - at least the reboot sequence is faster, but still it freezes immediately when you try to rewind on HuluPlus. I also really wish that Roku would figure out how to get me some daily news programming. I'd pay for it! It's the only thing I miss about live TV, and the only Roku content is more long-form editorial, sports, etc. If I could just get a 30-min streaming recap (remember the old CNN "Headline News" show?) I'd be so happy.

    After having cable all of my adult life I finally cut the cord a couple of months ago. My main purpose for purchasing the Roku was so I would be able to watch netflix on my tv instead of having to sit at my computer. I'm new to internet streaming so I was quite surprised by how many other channels are available. I've had it for a week now and I still haven't went through each channel, there's so many! Setting up took less than 5 minutes and it's small but powerful! it also just happens to be my favorite color, another plus. Great product!
