I have always been passionate about getting targeted quality entertainment on demand not wanting to waste time with commercials and boring content. This has been a more than decade long interest and since the advent of the internet and media streaming the quest has taken leaps and bounds.
I started using the Roku in Canada just a couple years ago starting with the Roku XD it was a liberating experience especially with the use of Plex and Netflix. This all improved with the Roku 3 which is now the Ferrari of my collection of media players.
With the Rokus I have been able to ‘cut the cable’ as it were and with VOIP services like Magic Jack I’ve ‘cut the phone bill’ also. This allowed me to upgrade my internet service and get unlimited bandwidth usage per month, all while saving money. As a movie and TV enthusiast this has meant for the first time in my life TOTAL freedom with my entertainment. I now have all my favorite TV shows and Movies stored on an external hard drive with WiFi! Using Plex and the Rokus I can now literally turn on the TV and watch what ever I want. With Hulu Plus and Netflix I gain access to another wide variety of entertainment. I now can’t recommend the Roku enough to anyone looking to cut the cable, save money and get BETTER access to the entertainment they want!
It is now my mission to enlighten fellow Canadians and the rest of the world on the potential of Roku and personalized entertainment, with an especial interest in accessing American content and connecting the whole house to improve cross platform/device communication and connection.
