Is this a substitute for premium cable lineups? Dec 15, 2014
I think so. I signed up for Amazon Prime, so I get a lot more movies than just the free stuff (and no commercials). You won't see the very latest movies but they do have a large selection on Prime that are free. What I like most is I can watch a movie anytime I want to see it, I can pause it and come back to it later. I don't have to make time for it when cable decides to show it. For $99/year for all the movies I can see, I think it's a great deal. And it works great with a fairly slow internet connection, I live in the country and have a 256K connection and I don't have an issue watching movies.
Yes, I got an email from Roku that gave me instructions on how to get me 2 free months of Hulu. Aside from the instructions the email also said: Congratulations on your new Roku purchase! And to add even more awesome into your life, new Hulu Plus users qualify to receive 2 months FREE of Hulu Plus - a $16 value.* Just start your new Hulu Plus subscription by October 31, 2014. The fine print of the email reads: *Terms & Conditions: Offer only available to new Hulu Plus subscribers. Activate a new Roku player by connecting it to the internet and linking to your new or existing Roku account between 7/13/14 and 9/30/14 to qualify. Redeem offer by 10/31/2014. 2-month free subscription is for the Hulu Plus regular monthly fee plus applicable tax. Credit card required. If you do not cancel your Hulu Plus subscription at the end of the 2 month period, you authorize Hulu to charge your payment method each month for the subscription fees plus applicable tax until you cancel the Hulu Plus subscription. The Hulu Plus subscription can't be redeemed for cash, resold, or combined with any other special free offers. Offer valid in the United States only, excluding United States territories (e.g. void in Puerto Rico and Guam).
After watching setup on youtube he indicated you had to enter a payment method, credit card etc. Is this true? Dec 10, 2014
Yes but that is only used if you want to order additional channels at any time and will not be used unless you authorize it
can I use this with an old tv, not a flat screen/hd? Nov 30, 2014
there's a keyboard on the screen and you use the remote to click each letter, it takes a little time
