For example, Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Video, are all channels to the Roku box. It does have some cool stuff like being able to play from a USB device (if it is in MP4 format) and even install some simple games like Angry Birds (came free with it). However, it's not really groundbreaking or anything. You still have to pay subscription fees for all the good stuff. (Crackle has free movies, but you have to watch ads every 15 mins or so.) Essentially, the Roku is just a specialized internet browser when it comes right down to it. + 0 Votes Reponse To Answer christinawarren 2 years ago Thanks, I'll check the BoxeeBox out. + 0 Votes What to buy a Roku or Google TV. ansiroi 2 years ago Have you thought about the BoxeeBox. We just bought one a week or so ago and we are now watching the programs we want, when we want, albeit a day later or whenever after the first broadcast. Have not manage to find all that is available yet for free and yes naturally there are loads of rentals available. Even my wife is starting to operate it on her own, will be getting rid of the broadcast system shortly.
