Roku 2 XS Media Streamer

 

Roku has released its newest generation of media streamers, including the top-of-the-line Roku 2 XS player. Perhaps you haven't given Roku much thought as a serious addition to your home theater. Its earlier models gave more attention to the quantity...

In the past, I may have only recommended the Roku box to aging family members with less-than-perfect eyesight. Those boxes were easy to use, but the picture was standard-definition quality at best.

Roku 2 XS and XD Streaming Media Players Review

 

Roku recently updated their line of streaming media players, and they sent Julie their high-end Roku 2 XS with gaming remote to review. I had been in the market for a Roku for my living room TV so I could watch Hulu Plus on my big screen TV, so I...

Can stream 1080p video ; Works with Netflix, Hulu Plus, Amazon Instant Video, and other subscription services ; Roku has free and pay channels to add even more content ; Multiple models allow you to purchase only the features you want ; Can play simple...

The XD has no USB port, so you can't play your own files ; XD can only be connected wirelessly ; USB streaming does not support .MOV or .AVI files

Roku 2 (Second edition)

 

Your eyes don't deceive you, this is the brand new Roku 2. You won't find any letters after this media box's name though, as unlike its predecessors, this one's part of the third generation of Roku boxes, and slots right into middle of the revamped and...

Making your TV "smart" through a set top box is one of the simplest and easiest ways to get internet video straight to your eyeballs for a small cost, instead of springing out for a brand new and expensive smart TV - and that's where the Roku line-up...

There are few faults with the Roku 2 - it does its job perfectly, but we do wish it had a few of the extras that the Roku 3 boasts. For one, it lacks a USB port, meaning you can't load up any local media for playback, and it's still missing some...

The Roku 2 is a formidable media puck that takes on almost anything you throw at it. The headphone jack alone is worth the extra £20 (or £10 on Amazon) premium over the Roku 1, plus its superior Wi-Fi performance is always welcome - but then at that...

Roku 2 XS media streamer review

 

Roku's little box of digital tricks is designed to connect yourTV to your home network and thence to the internet. It also has arange of 80-odd channels including BBCiPlayer, Netflix, free movies from Crackle anda dozen or so games, including the...

Easy to set up, good range of internet streaming channels

Lacking some key channels, can't stream from networked computer

The Roku 2 XS is a great little device for connecting your TV tothe internet and despite missing YouTube and LoveFilm, has lots ofcontent available. But then again, if you're considering a newBlu-ray player, games console or smart TV, a dedicated...

Roku 2 XS IPTV player

 

Review In the US, Roku has ridden to prominence on the back of services like Netflix and Hulu, and the phenomenon of ‘cord cutting', where people discontinue pay TV services in favour of, well, paid IPTV services. That's perhaps not surprising when...

There’s no doubt the Roku 2XS is simple to use, and performance with Netflix and iPlayer is excellent; but there’s no home LAN streaming, and USB playback support is very limited. The cheaper LT is better value, and the WD TV Live will do more for...

Roku XS

 

This is my 3rd Roku and I need another one. I feel the cable companies are not liking these very much because they can not compete with the price.

Credit Card Needed

 

Bought this for my mom to watch Netflix. Did not like having to provide credit card info even though she was not going to purchase or rent anything other then Netflix.

I have the Roku 3 & I hate it!!!

 

I just purchased the Roku 3 and I am so disappointed. I can't get HBO Go because you have to order it from your cable provider & hope that they are on the list with Roku. Comcast isn't on the list. You can't watch a Disney movie or cartoon on the...
