However, you may not be able to consistently maintain the higher rate HD streams (generally 2 - 3 Mbps), particularly if you are using other devices on your network at the same time you are trying to watch a movie.

I was wondering how well Roku works on DSL. It would a speed of 3 Mbps. It works well with my cable now, so I am hoping it will still be okay with my Roku if I swtich to DSL.
DSL users out there - let me know! Thanks!
btw, Roku representatives - just wanted to say I love my Roku and always recommend it to people when they say they have netflix!!

That's what I heard. I don't know when or if Netflix on Roku will switch?
