I have an Apple TV on one television and it works great.. I bought a ROKU 2 for a second television but the remote doesn't work properly, I can't get to the user menu. I called ROKU online chat and support said the ROKU 2 remote doesn't map the netflix functions and that I should take it back and get a ROKU 3. They advertise that it supports main streaming channels, netflix is a very popular streaming service.
I am very disappointed.
Fantastic item for the money with added earphone
Works great do easy to install I would recommend
It to all
Roku 2 is a good option to get streaming video. The software updates help keeping the device more useful as time goes by. For example YouTube channel was recently added. Note that this device only works over wifi and there is no ethernet direct connection option. So if you get interference over your wifi this may effect the picture quality or connectivity. If you can buy Roku 2 on sale it would be a good option vs other competitors. Note that you can also cast videos over the TV using your mobile devices.
Gets hot and freezes, lots of people having this trouble, fix is drilling holes and heatsink.
Limited content, have to get a private vpn to get hulo but network provider does not allow so use vpn with smart tv and not roku.
We cancelled our cable and after some research decided to try this Roku. We already were streaming some shows. We are very happy with this Roku. We bought a second one for another tv in our house. It did take some time adding "channels" etc but we now have more than enough shows we can watch. It's not for everyone but I suggest giving it a try before you cancel your cable.
Great Media player..Got Playon and Plex media server so i get all these other channels You tube CBC ect plus netflix Hulu for free with playon and stream anything i want from my Computer to TV easily.
Will def getting another one for other rooms in the house has completely Replaced my Cable TV and with a VPN I get American stations/Channels as well that aren't available here in Canada!
No web browser
CBC not available to Canadian subscribers
In Ontario BestBuy charges a $7 ecotax while other stores do not (More eco friendly and same guts as portable computer - tablet)
Good for Crackle and a few other free channels (no Canadian channels other than NFB)
I haven't tested netflix
Very disappointed, I should have bought an Android system
One floor separation from router. Replaced an AppleTV 3 which went to one floor below router. Roku "stutters" a bit but is acceptable.
Works as advertised. Delivers Netflix seemlessly and fast with it being always on and ready. Plenty of interesting apps to choose from.
Cons: There is no YouTube App and the freeview movie apps are riddled with ads as expected.
Works like a hot damn. My kids and me are happy with it. Quite a few free channels that come with it which is pretty cool. I can see why Telus does not support Netflix with their Optic PVR.
However, I could not get it to recognize my Wifi initially. I finally reset the Roku with the little pinhole in the back and then went through the set up again and it worked. Perhaps I entered something incorrectly when I did it the first time.
I am so happy I purchased this little Roku 2 xd, I am a fan of netflix and didn't have any other way to get it, also love the fact that I get english subtitles, as I am a fan of foreign movies.
I am hoping they will add additional movie carriers as well
Very easy to set up and little cost to maintain, LOVE IT
