Product Description

Introducing the
Streaming Stick.

Designed to put the Roku experience
into Roku Ready® HDTVs and other devices.

The next big thing is really, really small

Meet the Roku Streaming Stick. The easiest way to build streaming into a growing number of HDTVs and other products. Plug the Streaming Stick into the MHL port of your Roku Ready TV and you’ve got the best streaming experience in the world—totally integrated with your new TV.

Build a smarter Smart TV

Today's Smart TVs become outdated in just a few years because their hardware can't keep pace with the rapid evolution of streaming software. Which is a problem, considering that most people keep their TVs for 6-8 years.

With the streaming stick, you get the best of both worlds. Go ahead, pair a stick with an awesome new Roku Ready HDTV. Plug in the stick, and in minutes you'll be browsing the biggest and best selection of streaming entertainment around. And in a few years, you can easily replace that streaming stick – for a fraction of the price of a new TV. Now that's Streaming Smart.

This Streaming stick will only work with newer TVs that have a MHL style HDMI connector. Although the connector just looks like a regular HDMI connection, there is more to it than that, and your TV must support MHL !! Buyer beware.

With that said, the streaming stick works fine. I tested it with a new 2013 Sony KDL-40R450A 40-Inch 60Hz 1080p LED HDTV (Black), and it turns a "cheap" non smart TV into a smart TV for a very affordable price. You can use the remote control provided by the TV to navigate your way around the ROKU interface and menus.

My only complaint is, I don't think the WIFI reception is that great with the stick. On a few occasions I had some connectivity issues with my Apple Router which was only a few feet away from the stick.

Now the question you might be asking yourself is ... should you buy the stick over a ROKU3 ? Well ... that depends on what you want.

If you want less clutter around your TV and a single remote .. then the stick is a good bet.

If you don't mind a extra box, and an extra remote (which can be mitigated if you use a universal remote to be fair), then the box might be better for you since you can also use a Wired internet connection.

Note, both the stick and the ROKU3 now have the newer style ROKU menus .. so both look the same.

Overall, its a solid, good product and I recommend it to folks that have a MHL style HDMI connection on their TV and want smart TV features.

Thanks for reading.


Just a few additional points to help folks:

1) The stick supports 1080p output. The default setting is 720p, but you can change this in settings.

I love the Roku products. I have had the Roku 3 external box for over a year on my other television but I got a new television with the MHL port in it so I decided to do away with the wires and awkward little box and I am sooooo happy with it. Works just as good as the Roku 3 box. To those who complained about paying for apps, do you also complain when you pay $600 for an iPad and then find out you have to go to the Apple store and pay for apps? This works exactly the same way. Also, I have NEVER put my credit card information into my Roku account as I have only used free apps like Hulu, Netflix, Amazon, etc. I just tell it I'll do it later. To those who complained you have to use your computer for set up. Yes, the first time you load an app and want to use it the Roku will give you a code for those requiring an online account like the above mentioned. You go to the web address it gives you, enter the code, and you never use your computer again. As with the Apple apps for those above mentioned type of accounts you must have an online subscription to use them. Honestly, I don't care for games so I have never used the Roku games. My Roku 3 came with Angry Birds installed and I deleted it without ever using it. I did purchase a Sony Blu Ray player that has the apps in it for television shows like Hulu, etc. However, I ended up going back and purchasing this as the Blu Ray is too difficult to get through all the menus to make your selections. One thing that I don't really use but Roku does have an iPad remote control app so you could control it from your iPad rather than using the remote if you like. Mainly I LOVE this because it hides behind my tv. You can't even see it anywhere. I priced televisions that are "smart".Read more ›

Recently, I got the LG Electronics 42GA6400 42-Inch Cinema 3D 1080p 120Hz LED-LCD HDTV with Google TV and Four Pairs of 3D Glasses, only to discover Hulu is blocked on Google TV. But then, I remembered this Roku streaming stick that came with the 3M Streaming Projector Powered by Roku (SPR1000), and decided to see if it would work with the LG TV. Just by chance, I put it in the HDMI MHL port that is on the TV for cell phones, and it it is working flawlessly. Now, I don't have to wonder when or if Google TV is ever going to be unblocked by Hulu.

We also have a ROKU Lite that I bought for the bedroom sometime back. It worked beautifully...in fact If I were rating it, instead, I would give it 5 stars. We like the ROKU so well we dropped our DISH in favor of it. This Stick is so cool because you can't see it...plugs right in to the MHL HDMI port on my TV. It also works very well...except for the remote control. It completely quit working once so I contacted ROKU and we determined that we had to do a complete restart the on the device. When you do that it removes all of your subscribed channel so you have to take all that time to re-subscribe and re-enter all the ids and passwords...a real pain. It did start working again but the remote's still intermittent. The TV remote operates it OK but we use the Logitech programmable remote ( something else I would give 5 stars ) and it lacks some of the playback programming. I've also found that it loses the wireless network every now and then so I have to push the reset button...a minor issue but the ROKU Lite has been faultless so what gives with the streaming stick? I give it 3 1/2 stars.
