roku hd

If you’re not a fan of your cable company, don’t miss this Best Buy deal! You can get the Roku HD Streaming Player for $36.99 shipped (reg. $49.99).

Roku is a magical little box that you hook up to your TV.  With it, you are able to watch basically anything from online, Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Instant… the possibilities are endless.  You can even watch youtube couponing videos.

For us, it has always been our means to not having cable.  We can watch so much that we really don’t need any more channels.  The biggest question folks always ask is what about sports.  Check out Watch ESPN and see if you are eligible to have a free account there.  You can watch almost any game on ESPN online if you are able to get an account.

For some of you this is the price of one month of cable.  Think about paying that to buy this little magic box and then never paying the cable bill again.  It’s a nice thought isn’t it…

The deal is Best Buy’s Deal of the Day and is available today, 12/5, only.

      Or you could simply connect your laptop or PC to do the exact same thing and not need to spend money on yet another device ……

      Is it that easy? my husbands keeps telling me that its not that easy to find the channels we like etc. Don’t want the kids to suffer but sure would love to ditch the expensive cable, we don’t even have premium channels and its still ridiculously high

      • Sandy Boone

        We ditched cable three years ago and have no regrets. We bought a Roku box and got an outdoor HD antenna. If you are the type of person that you need to see sports “live” it might not be the way to go. But, it seemed that all we ever watched was movies and regular network stuff anyway. So, we have Netflix ($8/month). We did Hulu plus for a while but recently cancelled it because we weren’t watching it much and it kept freezing on us.

        We haven’t had cable for 4 years now, and we would NEVER go back. Our antenna means we get 20 channels (including qubo, a 24-hr kids channel.) And we do Netflix streaming for $8/mo.

      This may be a silly question but, do you need one device per tv?

      • You do need one per tv.

    • Anne Loehr Goss

      How does this compare to the Roku-3?

    • Tammie

      http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roku shows the differences in all of the units. We have not made the big switch, have been reading about it, and want to do so, eventually.

      Jenny – I’m a New Yorker and have learned SO MUCH by applying your ‘southern savers’ principles to the high prices on Long Island. Here is my question: Would you share how you are paying/handling media in your own household? (getting internet access, watching live tv, watching movies, cell phones, etc.) Thanks!

    • Tdc

      This is probably a dumb question but do you have the capability of watching the news?

    • El

      I think can only use Watch ESPN if you are already paying to receive ESPN through cable or another provider; is this correct??

    • LM

      Hi, I just tried the link and the price is $49 with free shipping?

    • klynn

      can someone tell me about this. when it come to tech stuff i’v been living under a rock. do you pay a monthly bill?

      • Chad Millard

        No. You pay a monthly sub for certain channels that require it, such as Netflix or Hulu Plus. But there is no monthly charge for many other channels such as Crackle or SyFy.
