      We have on in our room and LOVE it. We have been looking to get an HD one for downstairs and this is perfect.  Because of it we cancelled our satellite. Totally worth it!

    • Adrian

      Where do you add the coupon code?

    • Veganpadua

      we cancelled our satellite too.   we LOVE netflix and hulu . . . and the price lol

    • Proudlyamom

      I have a Netflix subscription but not Hulu Plus.  What else do you get free to watch with this? We really want to cut off cable when contract is up in May.

      • Crafty_cat_86

        Crackle is on there, too, which is free.  There are a whole lot of channels, but most of them are really specific (like, the oboe player’s channel, or something…) and cost $$.  We LOVE ours and def. recommend it.  Between Netflix and Crackle (mostly we watch Seinfeld), we get all the entertainment we want.  Plus, you can get on Facebook and stuff (though we haven’t set it up yet).  Go for it!

        • Proudlyamom

          Thanks Crafty_cat_86.  I may get an old fashioned antenna for local channels and this to stream netflix and sign up for hulu plus.  I can definitely find enough entertainment between those three, I think.  We don’t watch tv that much anyways.

    • Cindy

      I am really interested in this product.  Could someone please explain to me how this works? Thanks a bunch!

      • Crafty_cat_86

        It basically turns your TV into a computer (or smartphone, more like) where you can connect to the internet (you need wifi) and run “apps” like netflix, huluplus, facebook, etc.  If you don’t have Netflix, that would be an additional monthly cost, but far less than cable.  The Roku “box” is a one-time purchase, though you can purchase add’l “channels” like the Christian channel or something, for a fee.

    • sue

      Do you have to get one for each tv you have or just one for all the tvs in the house? Do you have to pay a monthly subscription for the Netflix, Pandora, Crackle, Amazon etc? Do you have to leave it on all the time or just turn it on and off like I do the tv? Is it easy to use for someone technically challenged? Can we get free local news, weather, CNN and sports channels? Sorry for all the questions. Don’t want to buy it and then find out that it is not suitable for us. I guess I will still have to pay for internet service which can be much higher than a bundle of cable and internet service together.

      • Paula

        I just commented above, but I wanted to be a little more clear for those that that do not know about Roku.  You have to have 1 box for each TV, not 1 for the whole house.  Best to try it on one, and then go from there.  We now have 3 in our house.  Netflix is around $10 a month for the streaming service, Pandora is free, and I believe Crackle is free as well (but not recent movies, and not a huge to choose from, but hey free is free).  You have to pay for Amazon as well, but not exactly sure how that works.  I bought a movie of there, and it is ours, I can log into my account and pull that movie up whenever we want.  But I am not a huge movie watcher, more regular TV.  The sports channels nfl.com etc needs a monthly subscription for them. You cannot get local news and such, but we signed up for what they call “broadcast cable”, it is lower than basic cable, and it gives us what we need, $18 a month for us, it has HD channels for our stuff. Being able to add in channels to the roku, gives it such expansion. like I said programmers are out there putting together channels all the time.  when I started with Roku they had 10 channels as part of the package, Netflix, Hulu Plus and a couple of others and now they are up to quite a few.    Feel free to email me if you need more info, I know tech stuff can get a little hair for some. 

        • sue

           Thank you Paula and Grwrn. I guess I will have to do a little more research before deciding what to do.

      • Grwrn

        Netflix in $8 a month. The others you listed are free. Hulu Plus is $8 month. No local stuff and I haven’t added the weather or news apps. You have to have Wi-fi for this to work. We mostly use Amazon Prime, Crackle and Popcorn Flix.

    • Julieinnc

      So, how does this work? What do we need? Would love to ditch the cable co!

    • Paula

      We have a Roku attached to ALL of our TV’s.  We cut our satellite bill, and got just local (Broadcast – less then basic), and we have netflix.  Roku offers their own “channels” which some are pretty cool.  And because it is an open source technology, any decent programmer can program a “channel”.  One of these other channels I got was “playon”, and basically what this does is it takes any video that is available to watch on your computer, put on your TV.  It is not live tv, but it is like a DVR on steroids. We love it, we can watch all the boys kids channels Disney/Nick/etc all the shows that you could watch online.  The comedy channel… we never watch live tv with 5 yr old twins, so it works great for us! Just had to sing my Roku praises.  It is the easiest thing to hook up.  You will not be sorry you got this! We saved about 125.00 a month, and don’t miss it at all.

        do you need the memory 2 GB memory card?

        • Paula

          We don’t have additional memory on any of them, and they work just fine. I have had no issues

      • Bbfluvshoppin

         Hi, I have been thinking about getting a Roku and cutting our satellite for a while now.  We already have Netflix, and I would subscribe to Hulu Plus if we do it.  I would still be able to watch most of the shows I like, but I was wondering about children’s shows on Nick and Disney (which I see that you mentioned.)  When I searched for those channels I did not see them on Hulu.  There are a few kids series on Netflix, but not many.  How are you able to watch Disney and Nick shows?  Thanks so much!

        • Paula

          We are able to watch Nick/Disney/pbs kids etc using the, what Roku refers to as a “private channel”.  This private channel is called Playon.tv.  You have to pay for the software, but only once (they different price levels), and you can always try it for free for a couple of weeks.  I don’t want to put too much here as it can get long trying to explain it.  email me if you want  more specific stuff  pmlanning at gmail    We really enjoy our stuff, little cost, for what we are getting.

    • Guest

      We rely on our DVR box ALOT!  Does anyone know if this is still a useable feature with the Roku?  Also, are the current series of shows available when using this?  I would like to ditch my satellite bill as well but don’t feel I have enough information to make an educated decision.  Any information would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks.

      • TraceyMH

        Hulu has alot of the new TV shows from all the major networks.  If I missed a show the night before I usually just go to Hulu and the episode is available the next day. 

    • Metalneck

      The coupon is actually for $10 off on the Roku site.

    • Ed In Ncarolina

      Take the free “ground” shipping. It’s actually Priority Mail, so it’s like 3 days from CA to the East Coast.

    • FreeSpirit4eva

      how much is it for the christian, sports, news, & cartoon channels? Thanks

    • Dchall59

      what channel or service do you need to watch fishing, national geographic, discovery, HGTV and college basketball (ESPN)?WE would love to get rid of the expensive cable upgrade. I’ve heard about netflix and huluplus but haven’t used it.  Can we still get shows that come on Showtime thru these?

      • Amber777

        Netflix only shows tv shows and movies of their choosing.  Actually they just let a contract with Starz go so the have lost a lot of really good movies.  I’m thinking about going w/ another service b/c of it.  From the channels you mentioned, I would say this isn’t for you.  I’m not sure about Hulu.

      • Ed In Ncarolina

         ESPN is not on the internet, so not through Roku. ESPN is what’s keeping cable companies in business, because guys won’t give it up.

    • abby

      can’t you get the regular hulu (not hulu plus) for free on this?  we have been watching hulu network shows through computer but this device would be easier.  Also – any type of news channels?  could you watch world news tonight since it’s on abc online?

    • beme2004

      The $10 off is already taken into acount $59.99-$10= final price of $49.99. I did not see where to add a promo code for additional discount. Ebates does offer 3.5% back though!! Anyone know the average costs os additional channels such as sports and children’s? Thx.

    • tori729

      FYI, you can also just use your Wii to stream Netflix and now Hulu Plus. We thought about getting a Roku but we thought a Wii would be a better investment since there is more you can do with it.

    • amber7777

      How is this different from using a Smart TV/ BluRay player or Wii?  Does anyone know?

      • Maroonbruin

        It’s not much different, except that Roku has a lot of channels that are free and aren’t available through Wii or other streaming devices.

    • Ed In Ncarolina

      The free “ground” shipping is actually Priority mail, and got here in 2 days from San Jose.
