What you really need to know…
Fantastic product so far! After the first week, we bought a second one for a family member.
Roku Channel shows hundreds of free movies
I have used Roku for years,including several different models.The best new thing of note is Roku has recently released The Roku Channel,which has hundreds of free movies.It is ad supported.Roku has just about every app you can imagine (YouTube/Pandora/Netflix/Amazon/Hulu/HBO Now) plus tons of more apps in many different categories.Roku Express works fine,but you need to point the remote at the device,unlike other Roku models.Here are some points to consider when deciding on which model of Roku to buy:
U Can Still View Amazon Purchased Videos on This!
I had Amazon Fire TV Stick, and had to get another device to view YouTube. So, this is all that and then some! And Yes, you can still watch ur Amazon videos on ROKU! I luuuuv it!!!! There are SOOOO MANY OPTIONS!!!
Roku beats out Sony disc player!!
I’ve been struggling for literally years now trying to get my Sony BDPS3200 Blu-ray Disc Player to stream Netflix, but it almost always choked, sputtered, and came to a grinding halt. I tried everything, new modem, new router, clearing cache, etc. etc. You probably know what I’m talking about. I was considering upgrading the disc player, but wasn’t really keen on spending the money when the disc player I have works fine for discs. I finally decided to go this route. Awesome!! Roku plays it all, and for only $30 bucks, I have zero reason to complain, since I’m now have zero technical problems with streaming content. Yay!!! I should add here that my older-model CRT-type HD TV only has a single HDMI input, so the Roku is hooked up to an HDMI 3-way spllitter. This allows me ro run the Roku box, my disc player, and occasionally hook my camera up without having to plug and unplug cables. I use a wireless router to get the broadband signal from modem to Roku box.
Quick and snappy and overall a win! Also, important PSA in bottom of review!
spent a ton of time reading the reviews comparing all the streaming devices. I have an older model apple tv and I wanted an additional streaming device for my bedroom TV. I got a relative the firestick and tried it out myself – didn’t really love the interface so ultimately decided to give the Roku Express a shot. Initially I thought I was “downgrading” by getting the Roku Express since it’s so much cheaper than an Apple TV. So not a downgrade!! This device is lightning fast. I like it so much better that I use it as my main device now and moved the other one to my bedroom. I didn’t realize how fast a streaming player was capable of being till now. There are some other things I noticed compared to my other device. I’ll break down the pros and cons into a list.
Why ever pay for cable!!!
I have been paing $170 for cable and internet for years (its now $50 with just internet, so about $120 on cable). I didn’t have any special channels…no HBO, SHOtime….anything. Not even top tier cable. I had the middle package and it cost me an arm and a leg. I decided to cancel my cable long before I even bought the Roku. I only bought it when the Superbowl rolled around and I needed to make sure I could watch it. This thing is amazing. You pay the $30 for the device and THAT’S IT. No subscription fees, no hidden taxes, nothing! You can chose to add hulu, netflix or HBO if you wanted to pay a subscription through them, or do what I do and just use my sisters. 🙂 It has turned my old TV into a smart TV. Best purchase ever. Buy this and ditch cable. You honestly won’t be disappointed.
I love it! it doesn’t make me angry at all
I don’t know how slow the old one of these was, but the new one is instantaneous! I love it! it doesn’t make me angry at all!
Excellent low cost 720p/1080p streaming player.
There is a reason Roku is the #1 Streaming player in America, and that’s because they are simple and easy to use. So simple my neighbor’s 4 year old daughter who was baby sitting had no trouble finding what she wanted to watch on the Playstation Vue app, and even the 90+ year old clients at my work for a senior center can use them with little issue. Get this box if all you need is a simple no thrills HD streaming device that’s easy to setup, loads apps/channels fast with easy updates and you don’t mind a small box with an IR remote, but if you have an older CRT TV with composite inputs do go with the Express+ as it’s otherwise the same, and if you don’t to have a box in front of your TV then get the ROKU HDMI stick that hides nicely behind your TV, and comes with a Wifi direct remote. Also to note all the new models support private listening via their Android app/(can’t speak for iOS as I don’t use it) which has been greatly improved over time, but will depend on you having a good WiFi 2.4Ghz Network as the Roku Express, Roku Express+, and Roku 2016 black HDMI stick only support 2.4Ghz from my testing.
Spectrum all for my tv’s
I purchased this for one main reason, our cable company, Spectrum, is going all digital. They told us any tv with basic cable line in will not work after the 23rd of this month. Well of course they offer a box to get your channels, but with a cost. I pay way to much now.
