Sounds like a great deal, right? But perhaps you need to learn more about Roku before spending $50 - $100 on a streaming media device.
In the United States, Roku owners have access to over 300 channels, including top picks like Netflix, Hulu Plus and Amazon Instant Video. Roku also just recently launched in Canada with over 100 channels, and they have stated that they plan to be just as aggressive in offering Canadians great channel options like their southern neigbors have.
The Roku player handles standard and high definition streaming up to 1080p. The top of the line model, Roku 2 XS, even throws in a free copy of Angry Birds, which my kids just love. While there are other streaming devices available at similar price points, Roku is still considered to be the industry favorite for giving consumers more bang for their buck.
