There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
Way at the bottom of the Roku payment method area is an option in very small print that allows you to skip this step for later.
Select that option, proceed to rest of setup and there will be no credit card linked to the account.
UPDATE: This Roku Credit Card bypass step is still available. I added a new Roku to my account recently, and was again able to find and select the nearly invisible "Skip, I'll Add Later" choice when prompted for CC info. It is still way at the bottom and still in tiny grey type, so it is barely visible.
MAIN NEW FEATURES
Faster processor – The main reason to buy a Roku 2 is that it has a really fast processor at a cheap price. The fast processor makes moving through menu options to find shows very fast. It also has shorter loading times (if your internet connection is quick enough). After using this processor, going back to a slower processor would drive me crazy.
Other new features … The new Roku 2 does not have many other substantial new features, but still includes the many great features that Roku has developed over the years. The new Roku 2 can be boiled down to a really fast processor at a good price and the ability to instantly see which source is renting each movie for the cheapest price.
WHAT’S NOT INCLUDED
Here are a few other things you’ll need:
- Credit card (to pay for movies and shows ... most require a subscription or rental fee)
- HDMI cable
- Mount (If you have a WALL-MOUNTED TV, you’ll need a mount to attach Roku to your TV.)
The main reason to buy a Roku is that Roku is not trying to push you towards certain content providers. Apple TV, for example, does not allow you to access shows and movies from many sources. Fire TV tries to encourage you to buy content from Amazon (although a few other content providers are available if you look for them). Unlike Apple TV and Fire TV, Roku makes it easy to search for shows and movies from many sources AND lets you see how much different providers charge for shows and movies. This difference is IMPORTANT – If you want to watch a certain movie, you’ll love instantly seeing which source rents the movie for lowest price! Bottom line – You’ll probably save money in the future by renting shows and movies via Roku 2.
DIFFERENCE FROM OLD ROKU 2
The most important thing to note is that the new Roku 2 is very similar to the old Roku 2, which one exception – The new Roku 2 includes a much faster processor than the old Roku 2. If you want to be able to search for shows faster and load shows faster, then upgrading to the new Roku 2 is a smart move. Note – If your internet connection is slow, then Roku 2’s faster processor will not help load shows faster.
DIFFERENCE FROM APPLE TV
Roku 2 will enable you to access shows and movies from many more sources (often with lower rental prices). The Roku 2 interface might not be quite as simple as the Apple TV interface, but Roku 2’s interface is still easy to use.
DIFFERENCE FROM FIRE TV
Fire TV provides access to several sources of shows and movies, but Roku 2 provides access to more sources of shows and movies (perhaps more sources than you’ll ever need). Roku also makes finding the cheapest price much easier (by instantly showing you prices from different sources). As of today, Roku 2 does not have games (unlike Fire TV).
DIFFERENCE FROM OTHER ROKU PLAYERS
Both the new Roku 2 and Roku 3 include the same fast processor and 1080p (HD) resolution. Buy Roku 3 if you want voice search on your remote (rather than by downloading an app on your phone), you want headphones, or you want to pick from a few simple games. Otherwise, buy Roku 2. Roku 1 also has 1080p (HD) resolution, but the processor is much slower. Only buy Roku 1 if you don’t mind a slower user interface and other delays. Don’t buy the Roku stick … you deserve better.
I cant help but laugh that people take off stars because they feel it should come with an HDMI cable and some sort of universal mounting bracket. Even funnier that they go out an buy some $10 - $20 mounting bracket when a 10 cent piece of velcro works just as good if not better.
PS. If potential customers actually took 30 seconds to look at the Roku web site, it shows whats included in the box. Do a little homework and save yourself some grief.
