How does it work?
Roku is compatible with virtually any TV. Add it to your high-speed internet home network. Once you set it up, you do not need a PC to make it work.
It connects directly to your TV and to your wireless (or wired) home network, then lets you access the streaming entertainment channels that you sign up for (like Netflix) right from your TV, using a handy remote.
Since it streams rather than downloads video, you have instant access to a huge library of entertainment without using a computer or store files locally on a hard drive.
Faster and more powerful. With up to 1080p HD video* and extended-range, dual-band wireless performance for increased speed
Amazing remote with headphone jack. Use the included in-ear headphones to crank up that late-night flick while the kids (or parents) sleep
