It's ridiculously easy

From the simple remote to the intuitive interface, Roku LT was designed to set up in a few quick-and-easy steps. All you need to get started is a high-speed Internet connection (and a TV, of course). The built-in wireless and guided setup mean you can be up and running in minutes. And we bet you don’t even have to call your nerdy nephew for help.

 
Included with the Roku LT
  • Standard remote with channel shortcut buttons
  • Two AAA batteries
  • A/V cable (red/white/yellow)
  • Power adapter
  • Get Started guide
  • 90-day manufacturer warranty
What you need
  • High-speed Internet (like DSL or cable)
  • Wireless router
  • HDMI cable (for high-definition video)
  • Internet browser (for initial setup)
 

In general, the faster your Internet connection, the better the video quality. For the best viewing results, we recommend a minimum of 1.5 Mbps for standard definition and 3.0 Mbps for HD content. To test your network speed, visit either one of the following (free) websites: speakeasy.net/speedtest/ or www.speedtest.net. Please note that your Internet speed may vary throughout the day.

This little box is the size of two packs of playing cards and it hooks into your TV either via the HDMI port (on HD TV's) or it can be connected to older TV's by the three-plug colored cord (red, yellow, white) that hooks up the video and audio. (HDMI carries both the video and audio signal together.) The Roku works on your home WiFi system, picking up your internet service and any subscriptions you may have such as Netflix or Amazon Prime and you can watch TV shows or films or other features.

Setup is extremely easy. You need your WiFi key (the code that plugs you into your wireless network) and it pretty much goes in a few minutes. You also may need the passwords to any video online services you have. It's not entirely easy, but you can add Youtube (via Videobuzz. It's not straightforward, but I got it to work following the instructions on Videobuzz.)

There are four different versions of Roku out at this time. This one is the base model and it lacks the ability to play 1080p HD video, which may or may not be available to you from your cable provider or because the speed of your internet connection can't handle it.

This version also lacks a headphone jack on the remote (have to move to the Roku 2 for that) and if you and your family are enthusiastic gamers, there is a Roku 3 version more suited to gaming, with Dual-band wireless, motion control for games and a --much faster (5 times) processor as well as ethernet, a USB slot and a microSD card slot. For families who game, the LT Roku is NOT best choice. However, the Roku 3 only handles HDTV, so if you use an older analog TV, the Roku 3 is not for you. The Roku LT does NOT come with Angry Birds--so if that is important, you'd move up to the Roku 2, at least.

I got my first Roku in 2009 and fell in love right away. I got my second box in 2013 and I fell even more in love with all the new features! My favorite new feature is the search feature. I love that you can simply enter a actor, director, TV show or movie and it will search all the channels and show you where you can watch that show or actor. There are many FREE channels like Crackle that offer great TV and Movies but there are many channels that require a fee like Netflix or Hulu Plus. I am paying less than $20 a month for a couple of channels and I can pretty much watch any currently airing TV show I want. Beats paying $129 a month for cable like I was!!

I love the idea of the Roku and the interface isn't too bad, but this particular model is no good at all. I've ordered a Roku 3 and I'm hoping it solves most of the problems this device has which are:

- It's crazy slow. If you look at the device comparison chart it says that the Roku 3 has a 5x faster processor. That sounds about right, because the Roku LT is at least 1/5th as fast as a device needs to be to be usable. It is excruciating to use.

- It's buggy. It worked for 5 days and then the wireless stopped working and started reporting a MAC address of 00:00:00:00:00:00. There is a Roku forum thread discussing this issue that goes back to April of 2010.

- Poor thermal design - it overheats and shuts down.

- Not enough buttons on the remote. I understand the desire for Apple-like simplicity, but I bought this mostly to watch Aereo, and there aren't enough buttons for one of them to mean "change channel" within the Aereo app. (Aereo is a virtual antenna/DVR)

My advice: if you're going to buy a Roku, don't buy this one.

This is a fantastic device and it does exactly what it says it should do.

The biggest negative to reviewers here and other places is that this device does not support hd 1080p. This is definitely a negative when dealing with the Roku family of products but the device still does what it says it can do.

This item is a way to cheaply and easily stream content you are paying for such as netflix and amazon prime subscriptions. People seem to also dislike this item because it does not provide endless high quality free content. From what I have seen Roku hasn't made a habit of misrepresenting itself.

Anyway, if you know what you are getting this is a great product. A roku used to cost over a hundred dollars and finding one under fourth dollars is great. You don't need all of the bells and whistles.

If you are in the market for a device this is great. I have heard that getting a chromecast is a comparable item but I have never used one so I am affraid to make comparisons here.

I think the current review here is a bit too low. Enjoy this product if you need something like this.

I purchased this device to connect to a 11 year old television with RCA connectors. It was easy to set-up and use. I have no complaints because it works flawlessly.

We recently got rid of a car that was delivering our family to various places at the rate of 20 miles to the gallon...bought a Prius 51 mpg. We cut wood and heat our home with it... we grow a garden and eat out of it and my husband fills the freezer with wild game and fish... so you see we are all about not spending our money when we can.

We cancelled cable and went to a roof top local reception ... I was amazed at how much I did not miss it... but I noticed the $120 a month right away.

Enter the Roku ... I was blown away at how easy it was to set up... since we have Amazon prime we suddenly have access to thousands of free movies, TV programs(without commercials) plus the ability to rent a movie fro netflix (which I never have done)...

For me I love the books off of Amazon and have been a kindle user for years... with Amazon Prime I can read an unlimited number of books for not only myself but my grand kids as well... my husband just bought me a new Kindle fire which also used the Amazon prime membership... If you do not know or understand what a value Amazon prime is your losing money... it is just Amazing... and the Roku fits right in our little money saving family. That kindle fire fits into the money saving plan... plus it becomes a very portable TV for the grand kids watch a movie from Amazon Prime... Roku and Amazon Prime where made for each other and toss in a Kindle fire HD and you will be amazed at how much of you pay for is actually FREE.

My husband likes it because he can take it on the road with us and many places offer free wireless so it is a simple thing to log into the wireless service and watch what ever movie or TV program we want to watch, when we want to watch it and not be tied to the cable crap that is offered...
