It's ridiculously easy

From the simple remote to the intuitive interface, Roku 2 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 2
  • Enhanced remote with headphone jack
  • Headphones
  • Two AA 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.

EDIT - 12/17/13 - YOUTUBE - I've never sat back and wished I had YouTube on my Roku, but I know a lot of people (and reviewers) lament the lack of YouTube. Today Roku launched a YouTube channel BUT it's only available for the Roku 3. The Roku 2 DOES NOT HAVE YOUTUBE and Roku has only said "The channel is expected to be available on additional player models next year." So if you want YouTube, get a Roku 3.

[...]

EDIT - 12/3/13 - NOTE ON NETFLIX CHANGES : The Roku 3 has received an update to Netflix that the Roku 2 has not (and Roku hasn't said when/if the 2 will get the Netflix update). The Roku 3 Netflix "channel" has received a facelift - it has a much more pleasant look and works better as a "10-foot" interface in my opinion. Playing content is no different, however the Roku 3 interface is more efficient for finding specific episodes of a season of a TV show. The old (Roku 2) interface presents all episodes as a long horizontally scrolling list, whereas the Roku 3 Netflix interface allows you to pick a season, and then shows all episodes within that season. I actually find the Roku 2 style interface to be more efficient for going through movies, however the Roku 3 interface is much more aesthetically pleasing and works better for multiple season TV shows.

Video of the new interface can be found here: [...]
Here's an example of the existing interface on the Roku 2: [...]

So if you want the new interface for now it's only on the Roku 3 with no announcement about when/if it will come to the other models.

ORIGINAL REVIEW

I've had a Roku 3 hooked up to my living room TV for a while now so I thought I'd do a comparison between the two devices.

We are in our 60's and can remember, honestly, when tv was a whole lot better.  We had better movies, sit coms and mysteries.  So now we much prefer the British Mysteries and Comedies and the ol spooky movies from the 50's, 60's and 70's.  Being a Vincent Price fan and Bela Lugosi fan you can tell what era we are talking about.  We had been paying incredible amounts of money for cable TV of which we watched perhaps 3 or 4 channels. We really hate the reality shows, many news shows and the current sitcoms are incredibly bad. So we decided to try Roku.  We got it from Acorn TV and we did have one minor problem during hook up. We called Roku and got a gentleman who walked me through a few steps and that corrected the problem.  Since then, we have had 3 other times that a glitch came up.  In 2 cases it seemed to be a problem of the actually channel we were trying to watch. In all cases a call to Roku fixed the problems.  Only once did it actually take one day to get fixed because the problem came from the channels (Drive In movie Channel) problem.  But it was fixed. Plus if there had been a problem you will get a follow up phone call and e mail from Roku to make sure the problem stayed resolved and you are happy.  Can't beat that !!  So, that being said let me tell you that we sooooo enjoy Roku.  If we want to watch something local we can since we kept our local channels at a pretty cheap price.  But 90% of the time we are watching Roku.  It is so much fun to us.  We can watch film noir movies from the 40's, we can watch sci fi from the 50's, we can watch movies from all the eras, we can watch documentaries, news information, etc. Some of the channels you will have to pay for.  That is up to you.  We have only spent money on 2 channels that charge (example $1.99 and that is it.Read more ›

SUMMARY
Love it, with some minor nitpicks; a much better experience compared to using my Wii for Netflix.

SETUP
Easy-peasy. Choose language, sign in to network, create an account. Done in 5 minutes.
- Minor bug: my wireless network SSID was listed twice.
- Minor gripe: had to give my credit card number, but roku.com indicated that I can remove this later via website.

USE
Overall, the experience is great. The interface is beautiful and easy to navigate. The remote is simple, responsive, and has great range. Previously, I used my Wii to access Netflix, but the remote range was so small that I had to get up off the couch to control the Wii. With the Roku remote I can control things even from the dining room!

One potential point of confusion is the integration with M-Go. The top level menu has Channels (Netflix, Amazon, Crackle, etc) AND "Movies", "TV", etc. At first I thought that "Movies" might mean all movies across all of Netflix, Amazon, etc, but that's not what it is. The "Movies", "TV" and other selections are actually sub-headings for M-Go, a new Roku partner. I guess as a partner they get premium placement at the top menu level. It's not a big deal, but it was a little unclear to me.

+ Interface is clean, bright, sharp (at least with my HDMI connection) and intuitive.
+ Remote range is much better than Wii
+ Everything feels pretty snappy.
- Minor gripe: Rewind seems very small (7 seconds?)
- Minor gripe: Backarrow button sometimes doesn't work and you need to use the home button.

CHANNELS
When you setup the Roku you are prompted to select from some 20+ channels. I found out that there are actually more than 1000 channels available! You can see them on [...
