I want to get rid of cable in my house but still want to watch some shows and news, etc. I have netflix and PS3. Is a streaming device the way to go?

  • A. You would need one of these boxes for each TV in the house that is not WiFi capable. I have a Roku in my living room and it gets way more streaming sites than does my WiFi ready TV that is in my bedroom. I just cancelled my cable and am very happy with having NETFLIX and HULU PLUS ($20/month combined) and renting the occasional movie or TV show/series off of AMAZON...all of which are available to stream from using the ROKU.

  • A. Yes, just like you would a VCR or DVD player. It has a remote and that remote controls what it plays. Unless you want two different TVs watching the same thing.

  • A. You can connect your tvs using splitters and coaxial cable to be able to use one box but you will only be able to control it from the room with the box. If you want to be able change the channel at each tv you will have to have a box for each tv.

  • A. It could be done. However, I chose to downgrade my DirecTV to minimum simply because I want to have local programming and HGTV, DIY, FoodNetwork. Otherwise, you could. I have a friend who only had antennae TV, or as she calls it air TV. She has been so excited to have ROKU as she and her husband now are seeing some of the 100,000+ items available.

  • A. We have one box in our living room (as well as a PS3) and we will be purchasing another box for our bedroom because we do not have cable. We stream netflix and other channels through our roku. The only news I have watched is the first hour of the today show...I haven't checked out any of the other channels or shows, but we love our roku for the streaming possibilities.

  • A. Streaming on the TV is great but you would need a device on every TV. Be in a roku, playstation,Xbox, Wii or blue ray player with netflix. No commercials is great !

  • A. You will need one device for each television you want to watch netflix on. the PS3 is one, for a second tv you could get a Roku box or a blu-ray player with a netflix app. Or a Nintendo Wii but they don't output in HD if that is important.

  • A. HDMI is great if your TV is compatible but the ROKU comes with video cables ( the regular red, white and yellow cables) And those are all that is really needed

  • A. A set of cables comes with the unit, but it is recommended that you order a HDMI cable for a HD set. I used the regular cables and they worked fine, but the picture might be a little better with the HDMI cables, which adds about $10 or so to the cost.

  • A. The unit does not come with hdmi cables. harbor freight tools sells hdmi cables fairly cheap for decent quality. The unit does come with the standard Yellow-video,red and white-audio cable.

  • A. You can use either the standard Composite cables (Yellow, Red, White) or yes an HDMI cable. HDMI is obviously going to be required for high def viewing.

Wow! This is an amazing little box (it is very small and doesn't take up much room) and does so much. And no monthly fees for the Roku!!!This is my second Roku because the first one worked out to be a phenomenal deal. Set up was a little tricky at first then everything was done in less than 10 minutes. You can watch thousands upon thousands of movies, documentaries, TV shows, cartoons, etc. when you want and it remembers where you left off if you don't finish watching an entire show. Anything in your Netflix instant queue is what you can watch on Roku and there are also numerous other channels like Hulu, Amazon, etc. The Roku saves me about $500 per year using Roku with my Netflix subsciption instead of standard cable. Best purchase ever!!!

While I had long ago "cut the cable cord" the roku has allowed me to get by on the 2 at a time plan as compared to the 4 at a time plan before. Thats $13 a month plus tax in savings at Netflix. I had to buy a router and the roku Paid $70 for the Roku XD a few months back at Amazon with a $10 off deal. The router was about $65 with tax from Sams. So, they will pay for themselves in 10 months as compared to the 4 at a time plan. Plus, I always have something to watch with no commercials. I only wish I would have bought the roku a year or two sooner. Amazon took about a week for it to get here so if they would have been in stores locally, I probably would have bought local.

The Roku XD was easy to set up and did exactley what was promised and for me to be able to do it with an old tv/dvd of about 15 years old surprised even me. I am very happy with my results and the cost of the Roku.

I have an LG HD LCD with 1080P. (not wifi) I also have the GE Flat Panel Passive Antenna to pick up local channels. (installed first-great picture too, btw) I set my Roku XD to display at 1080P. I am using a wireless internet connection with a FIOS router and needed to have my wep key entered during setup. (security code too if you have one) Easy installation-it took about 10 minutes. However, during setup it is a good idea to have a laptop handy if your PC is in another room. You will have to register the ROKU device with an onscreen activation code onto their website, then do the same to link up your Netflix account. PROS: 1. The picture is BETTER than digital cable on this tv! Even in 1080P, I couldn't believe it! 2. I'm only paying for Netflix and Hulu Plus about $8 each/month instead of $160 for digital cable and the movie channels. 3. Older popular movies are available to watch instantly instead of being on PPV for $2. 4. This player streams Netflix, Hulu Plus AND Amazon. I almost bought a WIFI Blu-Ray for less $$ to stream online media but it was only compatible with Netflix. 5. Tiny box! CONS: 1. I have yet to see a news on demand channel like HLN, so I am back to watching the local news via the antenna. 2. A couple of the buttons on the remote feel like they would sink into the case and get stuck if pressed too hard. 3. The remote doesn't have numbers or alpha characters. When searching for movies, you use the arrows to help type the titles of movies you are searching for via the onscreen guide. 4. A little pricey for the technology. It's pretty much standard now. 5. Have to buy another less expensive model for another tv (analog+converter box) for use in another room.

A Little Roku Goes a Long Way!

Great little device (once you finally get it set up/programmed)! I watched lots of Youtube tutorials on the set up of the Roku and, at least for me, it was WAY more complicated than was shown! I only encountered a few technical problems after it was installed. There's not much on regular television that I enjoy watching but with Roku I have choices galore! Right now, I'm plugging it into the TV of which ever room I happen to be in so I'm seriously thinking about buying another one. In regard to picture quality...sometimes it's fine, sometimes it's not. I would say the down-side is the pauses for "loading." Unlike regular "commercials", which seem to be programmed to come on when a scene fades or at least AFTER a line of dialog is delivered, Roku interrupts for loading when you least expect it. And, sometimes it loads quickly but most of the time it doesn't. Annoying, but to be able to watch what I want, when I want, I can deal with it. There are other channels (as they're referred to)on Roku but in my opinion, Netflix is by far the best!
