Even if you can't live without your cable or satellite, most media consumers will gain a benefit from a Roku player of Roku stick from the moment they start using the powerful device.
The Roku Streaming Stick is about the size of your average USB thumb drive and the stick design makes it easy to plug into your television's HDMI port. It works on stand alone TVs, but also works great for wall-mounted units.
“The new Roku Streaming Stick gives consumers more choice for streaming entertainment to the TV than any other device,” said Jim Funk, senior vice president of product management at Roku. “Consumers want a ton of entertainment, an easy way to search for movies and TV shows, and options to control the experience with a remote or mobile device. This new Roku Streaming Stick brings all that and more – and in a tiny form factor.”
