What you need
To use Roku, you need a high-speed Internet connection with a speed of at least 1.2 Mbps (such as mid-level DSL). For HD video, we recommend 5 Mbps (if you're not sure what your speed is, go to www.speedtest.net and run the simple test). You may also need a wireless or wired router if you cannot connect Roku directly to your cable or DSL modem. Oh yeah, you also need a TV.
