The newest Roku is smaller and quicker than ever, now a single 2~ inch stick that plugs directly into an HDMI port and connects to your wireless internet, this 2016 model has 8x the processing power than the previous release and if you aren’t familiar with Roku let me explain why this cheap product will change your life. Roku is a small easily portable device that comes with a remote and gives you direct access to stream off of all major platforms –
“Device works with all top movie and TV streaming services, including Amazon Instant Video, VUDU, Google Play, Netflix, Hulu, HBO, and 3,000 more channels. Access 300,000+ movies and TV episodes plus music, sports, games, international content, and kids’ programming. Unbiased search across top channels shows you where content is free or cheapest to watch. And because Roku Streaming Stick is portable, you can stream to different HDTVs in your home, dorm, or hotel room.”
Essentially what this item does is it allows you to easily bring all of your streaming services wherever you may need to go, whether it be another room, house, hotel, etc. This item saves me a huge hassle on the daily as before I had this I was forced to move my Xbox from room to room if I wanted to watch Netflix or Youtube on my television. With Roku I can simply unplug it and pack the stick + remote up for transportation in a matter of seconds with no hassle, and now that it doesn’t require an Ethernet its even less difficult than ever before.
The Roku also comes with a remote which like the device is small and simple, only containing the necessary buttons to navigate streaming services, which alone is a simple menu with a search bar to allow you to find your preferred streaming platform without struggle. Roku really is a simple, cheap luxury that very few people even realize exists; and you too could be taking advantage of this advanced technology to avoid having to move massive computers, consoles, or whatever else you stream your shows/etc off of whenever you want to watch on a different TV.
