I used to be a subscriber to NetFlix but when we moved out the apartment I suspended my account and eventually canceled it. I could throw a rock and hit a Redbox, Blockbuster, Target, and a Walmart. I saw no reason to wait for the mail. However, having a kid can mke it hard to make it to these place and that is where the Roku steps in.I received a Roku in the mail. It is a very an unassuming box. The box is small and purple. I think that Roku saves money on printing elaborate boxes and passes it on to their consumers. Having a price of $99.99 is great for the features you get.
The Roku streams high quality movies from Netflix and Amazon Video On Demand from the Internet right on to your TV.
Setup is so simple. It has ever connection that you possible need. Composite, S-Video, Component, and even HDMI. The hardest part for me was entering my password for my wireless network, and that was super simple. Enter the code that it provides into my NetFlix account and I was ready to go.
- Great price point with the only extra cost being Netflix account or Amazon Rental Fees
- Simple Setup
- Easy to use
- Having to use your computer to queue up movies
Bonus: For the month of July, receive a receive a FREE Amazon Video On Demand movie rental when you purchase the Roku player. Exp. 7/24/09
Great news! I am giving away a Roku to one lucky reader of this blog. Be back later today to tell you how to win.
