    Hello Chris, welcome to EBN!

    Concerning the above, do you have a fav & why?

    I'm done w/Time Warner Cable and the expense for the very few shows I watch.

    Thank you!

    Hi Carol:

    A lot of the channels, I like for various different reasons. I like netflix for their movies/tv shows, and it has no commercials, but the selection of movies/tv shows on netflix are limited. It really varies from month to month, I'd have to say.

    Overall, i like the interface better on the roku than say, AppleTV. The only thing Apple that i own in my household is an iphone. Other than that, my wife and I are pretty anti-apple.

    There are certain streaming websites that have most cable TV shows up and running. Quality is not the best, but better than paying $30/month for HBO. If you'd like to know more, PM me, and ill be more than happy to point you towards the right direction.

    Point me too!
    @Texas Carol I honestly have been so busy I haven't watched that much on there. I now time Warner has a channel that you can subscribe to but you have to have their cable (like you do now) to get the channel which I believe would give you basically your Cable on demand. We use verizon so I would LOVE to see a channel for them. For movies etc i think it will be fabulous but I haven't found a way to watch our regular shows so much. (We watch a LOT of shows that our TiVo records for us) as for kids shows it is awesome as well. I will report back once I use it more too.

    I've had mine for years. Back before they even had an HD option! I love it, and check out new apps regularly but the most used is netflix for sure.

    Speaking of Netflix, anyone watching or watched Hemlock Grove? We just started and its pretty out there. I must say it has one if the most realistic scenes I've ever seen of a _____ turning into a ______ that I've ever seen! Won't say because of spoilers!

    @JAKEISGREAT it works along side of your Cable/satellite service. Cnnects to wifi so runs separately straight to your tv.

Anyone here use a roku and what r your favorite channels?
    I love Roku! It turns any TV into a smart TV...my favorite channels are Amazon, Netflix, Blockbuster and I just tried Redbox last night. Theyre adding so many channels now I try one or two new ones a night..most of them are a waste but there are also a lot of interesting ones on there! I am a Roku addict right now.
