“Roku is a little box that allows you to instantly stream tons of entertainment on your TV. Watch movies and TV shows from Netflix, Hulu Plus or Amazon VOD, listen to music on Pandora, catch the latest ballgame, and more — it’s all available whenever you want it.”-Roku Website
We received the Roku XD Player to review. We are big Netflix fans and are constantly watching Netflix via our Blu-ray player. But that means we are only able to have one TV in our house where we can watch our Netflix. But now that we have a Roku Player we can also watch in our bedroom. I love how small the Roku player is. It fits perfectly on our dresser under our TV. It is so small it doesn’t take up all the dresser space like our Blu-ray player did.
Both my hubby and I were impressed by how fast and easy it was to set up our Roku player. The Roku player connects to your internet wirelessly. One it was set up, connecting the Roku to our Netflix account was a breeze as well. The whole process took less than 10 minutes. Now we are Streaming Video in our room, where we couldn’t before. I also love how the remote is so simple. 3 year old Bug knows how to use it :) The picture quality is really good with Roku. Of course this also depends on your internet connection.
Roku has 3 different options for players starting at just $59.99. The Roku XDS, Roku XD, and Roku HD. And the great thing is once you purchase your player you don’t have to pay any fees to Roku (only the channels you subscribe to like Netflix, Amazon Video on Demand, etc…)
Things that are Brag Worthy:
- It’s really easy. Be up and running in 5 minutes. Roku is so tiny you can fit it anywhere.
- No PC needed. Roku connects to your high-speed Internet connection wirelessly.
- No extra monthly bills. Use your existing subscriptions (like Netflix or Major League Baseball), or enjoy free and on-demand content (like Pandora, Flickr, and Amazon VOD).
- It’s always getting better. Roku is constantly expanding its library of streaming entertainment, so there will always be something new to watch.
- 30 day money back guarantee.
A Roku Player makes a wonderful Christmas gift the whole family will enjoy!
Roku gets Bragging Rights!
