What is Roku?
Roku is a little box that allows you to instantly stream tons of entertainment on your TV. Watch movies and TV shows from Netflix, Hulu Plus (coming this Fall) or Amazon VOD, listen to music on Pandora, catch the latest ballgame, and more — it's all available whenever you want it.
It's really easy.
Be up and running in 5 minutes. Roku is so tiny you can fit it anywhere.
No PC needed.
Roku connects to your high-speed Internet connection wirelessly.
No extra monthly bills.
Use your existing subscriptions (like Netflix (Try Netflix Free for 30 Days) or Major League Baseball), or enjoy free and on-demand content (like Pandora, Flickr, and Amazon VOD).
It's always getting better.
Roku is constantly expanding its library of streaming entertainment, so there will always be something new to watch.
