Roku 1

 

Editors' note : For a more recent comparison of Roku's current products, check out CNET's Roku buying guide .

The Roku 1 offers nearly the full Roku experience for $50. More than 1,200 channels are supported, including Netflix, Amazon Instant, HBO Go, Hulu Plus, Pandora, MLB.TV, Amazon Cloud Player, Vudu, and Showtime Anytime. It also has cross-platform search...

The new Roku Streaming Stick offers all the same functionality in an even smaller, more portable form factor. No dual-band wireless, which is available on every other Roku streaming box.

The Roku 1 offers the same excellent experience that's found on other Roku boxes at a new low price, but there aren't many reasons to choose it over the new Streaming Stick or step-up Roku boxes.

A tiny box to make your TV smarter, and a great first step into the world of video streaming

The Roku 1 might not sound new - the numerical character in the name is usually a dead giveaway - but it forms part of the smart TV platform company's revamped line up of low price streaming boxes. Gone are the confusing array of purple Roku 2 boxes...

You’ve probably noticed that smart TVs with internet connectivity and apps built in cost a fortune, but it doesn’t have to be that way. You can have all those lovely streaming services right now on your existing TV, even if it lacks a digital HDMI...

We’ve got few complaints with the software on the Roku 1. It’s missing a USB port for local media playback, and a couple of the channels that the more powerful Roku 3 already boasts (YouTube and 4oD, for instance), but they’re on the way. We’re still...

Don’t cry if someone gives you a Roku 1 out of the kindness of their heart. This little black box is a brilliant media streamer with so many channels, and will put almost any smart TV service to shame for very little. But you’d be mad not to pay a...

DOA

 

This is a pretty simple device but such a trouble.

As soon as plugged, it worked, but the problem begins here

After the initial connection to home wifi router, it updated software, then it booted again. After that, it never finds any wifi routers. Called Roku CS and spent about 30 minutes without any success following very lame procedures (i.e., reset to...

Poor Return Policy

 

If you are going to purchase electronics, buy them from a place who does not try to make you pay extra for returning a product

Cheap

If your looking to stream HBO or Showtime like the product advertises and you have Comcast as your cable provider, you will not be able to use the Roku for those services. Comcast blocked the streaming services to the Roku. If you try to return the...

Round goes the Roku

 

Well Newegg gets the win here. I had a dead remote with my first try. Newegg customer service rapidly sent me a RMA UPS prepaid auth and off it went. I had a replacement in about 4 days. I like the device and am very happy with it.

The new unit worked as advertised. Set up is very simple. Foot print of the device is like a hockey puck. Navigation of menus is simple and easy no cussing was required

I you have Hulu and or Netflix you are in good shape. Other paid services will offer plenty of diversity in viewing options. However if you only select from the free services you might be a little disappointed. I was, but not enough to pitch a fit...

Awesome Basic Streaming Device

 

Easy setup, HDMI compatible, tons of free and paid apps available. Great inexpensive device for anyone who wants to do basic streaming using Netflix, Prime Instant Video, or YouTube

Netflix app for the Roku 1 does not currently support profiles

I purchased 3 of these and they are great. Gave two to family as gifts and they love them! Best way to enjoy a movie. Movies to current weather & news.

Great Movies

Great for cutting the cord!

 

Used this as a replacement for cable. Netflix, Plex, and Hulu worked flawlessly. Didn't get a chance to check out all of the available channels, but there are many.

Does everything it advertises, and well

Standard def output not so great
