    • A. I have a Roku 2 XD and it has Pandora for "radio" but it also has "Radiotime" so if your radio station (US & other countries) streams to the internet you can probably get it on the Roku box.

    • A. The Roku line does support many online radio stations such as Pandora and Last.FM among others. You may want to check out Roku's website (www.roku.com) and see if your favorite service is available, if not, contact the service and ask them if they plan on working with Roku.

    • A. Only if you subscribe to monthly fee services like Netflix or Hulu Plus. There are also some one-time fee channels like Movie Vault which is $3.99 one time for life. There are horror film and western channels for $2 one-time also. What you buy is up to you. You can buy nothing and still get lots of free movie channels. They are mostly really old movies and TV shows on the free channels. If you have more than one TV and use more than one Roku then your subscriptions work on all the boxes on your network for no extra charge.

To get the best results you will need something fast but 3 to 6 megs a second should be good enough (the faster the better). Contact your local Internet provider to find out what your speed is and what is available in your area.

    I bought one of the RCA streaming media devices at the Black Friday sale. I connected it to my TV with an HDMI cable and to my wireless network. It should say oozing video, not streaming. It took several minutes to download the software update. Then, when that was done, I thought that I would try to watch a program. It took several minutes to download an episode of "How it's made" and part way through, it went blank and said "rebuffering", which took several more minutes. I returned it and purchased the Roku 2 XD. I attached it to my TV with the same HDMI cable and to my wireless network. The Roku software update took less than a minute. Then I tried an episode of "How it's made" again. I was watching it in seconds. This what I expected from a streaming media device. It was definitely worth the extra money. The remote uses standard AAA batteries instead of the expensive button battery that the RCA uses. Spend the extra money for the Roku....you'll be happier with the results.

    I read the reviews on the Roku product and decided to give it a try despite a few of the negative comments in other reviews. I am extremely glad I purchased this little wonder! It was extremely easy to set-up and program and I have since disconnected my cable. I was so pleased with this that I purchased another Roku on the next in-store shopping trip I took to Walmart. The Roku was on sale at the time and having been so pleased with the previous one, I grabbed it up. It wasn't until I got home that I realized I'd purchased the basic Roku as opposed to the XD I purchased previously. There is a SIGNIFICANT difference between the two. Although the basic Roku was just as easy to set-up, there is a constant freezing up and slowness with the basic one. I have experienced none of that with the XD. Although the XD is slightly higher in price, it more than makes up for it in quality compared to the basic Roku. If you're thinking about going with a Roku, I would highly recommend it (just go with the XD)!

    I bought this product in hopes of being able to view more television choices. We decided over a year ago to "do away" with any cable/satellite services, and have just been Netflix streaming watchers. I sometimes watch Hulu, but usually only on the computer. I researched this product, then decided to buy it. It was very easy to hook up (i used my wifi, but there is an ethernet outlet) and within a few minutes was able to watch and download channels. I use Netflix, Hulu Plus ($7.99/month membership, but still cheaper than the other choices) Crackle and lots of other channels as well. I'm able to keep up to date on most television shows by doing this. There is also a few channels for cooking, children, news (like Fox News, CNN, Nasa, etc.). My only regret... I should have bought this thing sooner! (I will note that sometimes it does freeze up, and there is no "on/off" switch, but everytime it has happened, it has restarted itself!)

    Beware - Does not work with D-link Wi-Fi Routers

    Don't let the good looks fool you. This device will not work if you have a D-link router of any type. They don't say it anywhere. It took me a whole weekend of fiddling with this thing and playing phone tag with their tech support for them to finally tell me that this is a known issue to them. They were supposed to send me a replacement that will work with D-Link and collected my contact information but nobody ever called back. Horrible customer service. I ended up returning it to Wal-Mart for a full refund. I went back to Google and saw that they have many websites dedicated to complaints against Roku. Apparently, they are known for poor customer service. I should have checked before I bought. I ended up buying a NeoTV device instead and I am very satisfied with it. No issues at all with my router. I was up and running in a few minutes. Also, the NeoTV has an ethernet connector as opposed to Roku which only has wireless. The signal is much stronger through the ethernet cord and I am able to view Netflix movies in full HD which is hard to do through wireless.

    This is the second ROKU I have purchased for our home. It is a great value for everything you get! This one is a lot smaller than the old version, which saves on room when placing it on the TV stand. We have excellent internet here at home, which you must have if the ROKU will work properly. Many of my friends have bought them after we got our first one. Some of my friends have had to return theirs because they had dial up service or their internet wasn't strong enough. We have DSL internet service here and I had already bought a wireless router (must have, it works on wireless). It's a "plug and play" set-up with very little skills required. If you want to use Hulu Plus and Netflix on the ROKU, you must sign up for them. We already had a netflix and hulu plus account, so it was very easy to set up. There are easy to follow directions that pop up on the screen that tell you exactly what to do. There are tons of free internet channels that you can add, via the Channel Store that is in your ROKU menu. We have expanded our TV channel options so much that we are considering cutting our cable out altogether.

    Customer has been confirmed to have purchased the item from Walmart.

    The ease of setup makes the Roku box perfect for beginners. The reliability and quality have been perfect. The one thing that sets Roku boxes apart from other manufacturers is the constantly expanding list of channels available. Other boxes are designed so you only get the channels that are available when you first purchase the box. When I first jumped in to Internet TV on the TV, I thought I would save a few dollars and buy another brand. Within a few months I regretted not spending the money on the Roku. The only complaint that I have - and I did see this on other reviews before I purchased the Roku 2 XD - is there could be better organization for the channels that you choose to have for your favorites...or maybe a way to search for them or assign numbers in order to get directly to them. This is such a minor complaint however that I haven't adjusted my rating for the box because of it.

    The setup took about 5 minutes using our home wireless network. Starts playing the video within a few seconds after buffering. Exellent picture quality. We're considering dropping cable as it keeps getting more and more expensive. It's recommended your internet connection be at least 10mb for High Definition. We got Netflix after getting the Roku and have really enjoyed it. "WE" choose what and when to watch. There are free movies and TV episodes via Crackle and other channels. Weather channels and News channels. Get an antenna for local channels and you should be good to go. I am getting a second one for my son so he can watch multiple episodes of his favorite shows and we don't have to buy DVD's or rent them. They're all on Netflix. WE LOVE IT!!!

    I think Roku has done a good job with this streaming video player. For a little black box, it offers a lot of features. It was easy to set up and it works well over WiFi connection. My biggest complaint is with the User Interface and has to do with channel navigation and selection. In a Channel Store there is no way to search channels. Basically, you have to scroll from channel to channel until you see a channel that you wish to add to your Roku player. Also, once you add a channel to your Roku player, there is no way to group them by a category or sort them in some kind of order and you have to scroll through your channels one at the time to get to the channel you want. This can get kind of tedious and time consuming if you have several dozen channels on your Roku box. The other thing that I don’t like about Roku is for whatever reason, they don’t have YouTube. If you got to have YouTube on your streaming video player then you may want to consider looking at AppleTV. Now, a few words about Roku channel selection. Roku offers a combination of Free and Subscription based channels. You got subscription channels such as: Netflix, Amazon Prime, HBO GO and huluplus and you also have a number of free channels, such as: Cracle, WSJ and more. There are a lot of movie channels, however, Roku also provides other types of channels such as: news, business and sports. The bottom line is; Roku is a good and affordable video streaming player that will allow you to connect your TV to internet, but, the User Interface needs improvements to make navigating through channels and searching channels easier and faster.

    I love my Roku because it takes the place of expensive cable TV. I can watch a lot of shows that I get from my streaming Netflix account for less than $10 a month and NO expensive cable bill. I decide what to watch, when to watch it, not a cable company. Now that things are so expensive and incomes are not as great as we need, Roku is a wonderful way to still enjoy TV without breaking the bank. You have your choice of old shows (Father Knows Best) and newer shows (Kyle XY) and movies from silent films to the latest ones available. It's a great value.

    The ROKU has more than exceeded my expectations. With more than enough program options and a few subscriptions to things like Netflix, Hulu +, Amazon Prime and GBTV, I can get more TV to watch than I will ever have time to take advantage of. Add PlayOn.TV to this unit and you can more than triple that. We haven't turned on the digtial tv tuner or cable box since we got the ROKU four weeks ago. I also have not found the need for the extra memory for more channels, so the ROKU LT might be an even better option. (Note: the ROKU LT is around $50 online, but most of the stores that I have gone to are selling it for $60). There is no charge for the ROKU other than your internet connection. The costs for my premium channels (Netflix, HULU, GBTV) are only $21 a month.
