If you have a movie or TV fan in your house, here’s a product you’ll want to add to your holiday shopping list. The Roku line of streaming players are one of those rare electronic gadgets that are easy to setup, and works as intended. The tiny Roku device allows you to instantly stream an unlimited amount of movies and TV shows from the ever-expanding thousands of titles available in the Netflix Watch Instantly library. A monthly subscription (starting at $8.99/month) is required to view Netflix content, but there are no other charges to use your Roku.
Once a Netflix-only streaming device, Roku has steadily added new content providers including Amazon Video on Demand, Hulu Plus (coming this Fall), Pandora Internet Radio, MLB.tv and more. You can find a complete listing of all content providers on the Roku website.
The Roku player is light on your wallet too. There are several versions of the Roku players available and they start at $59.99. If you have a movie or TV lover on your shopping list, definitely take a look at the Roku line of streaming media players. Even if they don’t already have a Netflix account, you can even include a gift subscription too. They are sure to please the gadget loving hard-to-shop-for person we all seem to have on our shopping lists.0
