      how does this work? you still have to pay for netflix or whatever…but it lets you play it on your tv instead of computer? 
      thanks

      • Millerset

        You can get Netflix or Hulu (or both) and stream to your tv. Either service is $7.99 a month. You must have high speed internet. We recently bought 3 units and dumped cable. You will have to watch TV on demand as oppossed to live. We like it so far. Good luck!

      • shayla

         Yes, that’s pretty much how it works.  You can also stream videos from Amazon and Roku has other apps you can buy that steam various content to your tv.  I’ve had one for a couple of years and it beats out Apple TV hands down!

      • Chellandandy

        It connects directly to your TV, has a wifi and hard wire connection built in. It uses all your existing subscriptions and is so much faster than any other device! If you stream TV or movies a lot it is well worth the money! We have been so happy with our ROKU!

      @986d3209b79884c9a20df15db71ddf7d:disqus  I have had one of these for some time now and love it! We no longer have satellite TV. Why subscribe to that when you can get HuluPlus for $7.99 a month or Netflix. I was already subscribed to Amazon Prime, which is $79 a year. There are hundreds of free channels on the Roku, but these two are my favorite to watch the shows that I used to on DirecTV.

      • Mel

        I’ve recently heard about this.  We are looking for a less expensive TV alternative as DirecTV keeps getting more and more expensive.  Are you able to get most of the same channels and shows or how can I find out what would be available to me?  What about local channels/news?  Do you ever get to see that?

        • tori729

           You can get over-air channels for free with an antenna and digital receiver. If you have a newer tv it probably has the receiver built in; if not you have to buy one. We get a bunch of stations totally free!

    • Suz

      Can you get ESPN with this?

      • Mandi

        Nope.

    • Reagan

      We’ve gone without cable/satellite for over a year now (I personally am fine without it, but hubby and kids STRONGLY disagree) but we’ve been looking at the Roku as a cheaper alternative. All of these positive comments have convinced me! 

    • Angel in Charleston

      Yay! We have been thinking about getting one of these. Now’s the time! Can’t wait!

    • Sue

      I have heard that you can pick up a lot with just antenna now but I don’t personally know anyone that has tried that. We were thinking of getting an antenna and then maybe a Roku and drop cable.  Anyone have any luck with antenna?

      • Sarahr412

        We have had no luck with an antenna.  My husband was living in NoVa (Northern Virginia) for work.  He went and got a high def anenna for his HD TV.  He was about twenty minutes away from D.C. and could not get any English speaking channels.  When we were able to join him and we moved to MD, I tried again for my son’s HD tv and again we could not get any reception. My son just plays DVDs in his room.  We do have a Roku for MLB TV and Amazon streaming and love it thought

      • Mandi

        That’s exactly what we did.  We dropped our dish and replaced it with a Roku and antennae (for $28) that picks up all our local channels in HD.

      • tori729

         It does depend on where you are located but I would think it would definitely be cheaper overtime than paying for basic cable. If you have a digital receiver built in your tv you only have to buy an antenna. You can just put it in your house, in your attic, or on your roof depending on how strong your signals are.
        Go to tvfool dot com to see how strong your signals are at your location and what kind of antenna you would need to pick them up.

    • TJ

      This is normally priced around $100 but we bought a Blueray DVD player that was wireless capable and we are able to do this and we only paid about $110 at Wal-Mart. So we can stream and watch Blueray DVDs for not much more money.

      • Sarahr

        Our Blu ray players will not stream Amazon or MLB TV so we had to get a Roku.  Roku also offers several other free channels and a lot of people are giving up cable and just keeping the Roku. 
        Both Xbox 360 and Wii will also stream Netflix and other streaming services.  So it just depends on what you want/need to stream. 

    • tori729

      FYI you can also do Netflix and Hulu Plus with the Wii if you already have it.
