While browsing I found a unique product for entertainment using our Television set and Internet connection. It is called Roku. Roku is a little box, which is used to instantly stream lots of entertainment on our TV sets. We can watch over 100,000 movies and TV shows using the major entertainment features of Netflix, Amazon Video On Demand, Hulu Plus and more. We can listen to music on Pandora, or listen to your own iTune collections. We can also watch major sports, news, or original Internet programming. These all-available entertainment features we can have online whenever you want it on our TV set instantly.
The Roku XDS sets a new standard with 1080p streaming video, which has the latest wireless technology, and Instant Replay. We can get it under $100, near about Rs. 5000 in India. No wonder Roku is the best selling streaming player in the world entertainment market today.
It is said by the manufacturer that it works with any TV – up to 1080p. The XDS delivers the biggest and best streaming video experience we can get.
It is really easy. Be up and running in 5 minutes. Roku works with any of the latest connectivity TV available now a day.
We do not need any PC to connect Roku should have the high-speed Internet connection wirelessly. With the XDS, We also get extended-range Wireless N.
We do not have to pay extra monthly bills. We can use our existing subscriptions (like Netflix or Major League Baseball), or enjoy free and on-demand content (like Pandora, Flickr, and Amazon VOD) etc.
It is always getting better. Roku is constantly expanding its library of streaming entertainment, so there will always be something new to watch.
