Are you still paying to rent freebies from Netflix rather than having to watch them on your computer screen? Take your head out of the sand ... you don't have to do that. There's an inexpensive and easy way to get your money's worth from your Netflix subscription and Amazon's Video On Demand service. It's called Roku.
Roku is the new digital box that enables you to download the freebies from Netflix and Amazon to your TV! It's been out for six or seven months and has been lauded by Wired, Gizmodo, and CNET, not to mention other less electronically-knowledgeable players in the media. What's more the every day users like you and I are raving about it.
All you need is a TV, a high speed Internet connection with minimum 1.2 Mbps, and either an Ethernet cable or a wireless router. The Roku comes with everything else:the digital box with built-in Wi-Fi and Ethernet, video cables, remote control, and AC connection. If you have an HDTV, you can connect with HDMI or other component cables.
The Roku Digital Video Player PLUS comes with a premium cable pack, including a 6-foot HDMI cable, one 6-foot Component Video cables, and one 6-foot Optical Audio cables.
The Roku brings movie menus from Amazon Video on Demand and Netflix right to your TV screen, so you can choose what you want to see instantly and conveniently, rather than having to choose from your computer. If you start watching something you don't like... switch to something else. If you want to take a break, put the movie on hold. Miss something? Rewind. The Roku Digital Video Player operates just like a DVD player.
If you're a movie buff or you like to watch the older TV series without commercial interruptions... and you hate to wait for the mail, and you already have a digital DVD player... the Roku is just for you! For less than $100 for the Roku, or $119 for the Roku Digital Video Player PLUS, you'll pay for it in no time with all of your free movies from Netflix and Amazon.
