Customer Reviews:

"The picture is definitely better than the PS3 technology. The headphone support within the remote is brillant and I use it all of the time."

"This is your best bet if you do not want to add an extra cable box kids love it. One simple fee you get many apps. some apps for free another you have to pay for either way it works out for kids."

"I'm impressed! Roku delivers. I use it mostly for streaming movies and checking sites like NPR. Simple to set-up and a breeze to operate. I only wish I had gotten one sooner."

​"Using the Roku to watch movies from Netflix and Amazon Prime is so EASY, the pictures is GREAT, and I'm getting way more out of my subscriptions to Netflix and Amazon. Thank you Roku, you've made movies and TV fun again!"

"We love our ROKU. Our next purchase from ROKU will be the ROKU 3 cause we want to be able to watch YouTube from our TV. And the free games on there as well is also a bonus. Neat little device. Not sure why anyone still has cable."

Thank you for visiting my website. I hope this information is helpful to you, as television today migrates toward streaming from the internet as opposed to Cable or Dish. 

My wife and I could not afford to buy an internet TV, and we did not want a significant monthly bill for cable or dish, but we wanted to be able to stream Netflix and watch movies on our 2003 Sony Trinitron which has the standard red/yellow/white hook-up on the back.

After searching for quite some time, we found out about a device called a ROKU. After reading what exactly a ROKU does, we realized we finally found what we were looking for. A ROKU connects your internet to your television via ethernet (wired) or wi-fi (wireless) internet. This allows you to stream netflix, hulu, pandora, youtube and other programs directly to your television.

The picture above is not an exaggeration. It fits in the palm of your hand and weighs less than your cell phone. The setup is very easy. It only took me a few minutes to setup and I was streaming netflix on my TV instantly. Afterwards, I was curious to see if I could route the ROKU through my VCR (for televisions that were even older than mine that only had the male attenna hook-up). Sure enough, it will work that way too! Just connect your ROKU to your VCR and then connect your VCR to your TV, and that will work just fine. This will only be necessary if your TV was made before the red/yellow/white connector came around. Otherwise, for best picture just connect the ROKU straight to your TV and enjoy!

 If you are looking to upgrade to an Internet TV instead, look below. Amazon seems to have the best deal out there. They guarantee to have the lowest price on televisions. If you do happen to find a lower price for that same particular television, they will match the competitor's price OR refund you the difference. They also have money back options between 2% and 6% on any television over $999.00 and free shipping as well as assistance setting up upon delivery. I'm particular to Samsung, but that's just my personal preference. There are hundreds of options there.
