Roku 3 in Canada ?

Postby madspec » Tue Apr 02, 2013 1:26 am

I am trying to get a straight answer about this directly from Roku but I am not getting something solid ...

When is the Roku 3 going to be available in Canada ?

Thanks !

They didn't tell us in the U.S. when it was coming until it was actually released. I'd kinda expect the same thing elsewhere.

You will know exactly what date it comes out, when it comes out or when Roku announces it to everyone publicly. That's the straightest answer you will get from anyone until then.
Roku2 XS, 42" LCD, Ethernet (5.5 b320)
Roku Stick HDMI, 32" LCD, WiFi (5.5 b2027)
Roku N1000, 25" CRT, Ethernet (3.1)
Router - Linksys WRT54G2
ISP - TWC - 50 Mbps/5 Mbps

That's a bummer :(

Any idea where I could order one from and get it shipped here in Canada ?

*Never mind, Amazon did the trick :)

Please note: Ordering OUTSIDE THE REGION you are in is NOT RECOMMENDED, and may cause complications during setup.

I've bought all of mine in the US and have never had a problem with them in Canada. As for when we can expect to see them here I wouldn't recommend holding your breath. Given the smaller market and lack of key channels like Amazon, Hulu+, or Pandora for example I really doubt they sell many of them up here. They probably have a lot of inventory to get through first. Especially since most fans of the product such as myself buy them in the US where they're considerably cheaper (I.e. at Sams Club or Costco where they usually come with an HDMI cable) and where there's more models and options available.

Just got my Roku 3 from Amazon, geez, zippy, got it in 1 day.

Well everything works like a charm, Netflix Canada is there and all my usual channels.

So Canadian people, just get it on Amazon.com .

so I just want to be 100% sure before I order... the Roku 3 from the US does work in Canada? Do you think they will block it somehow once it's released in Canada?
Everyone in Canada that has one seems to be happy with it?
thanks.

I bought a Roku 3 at Costco in Bellingham Washington and returned with it to Vancouver.

Setup was easy and straight forward.

Remember, not all Roku Channels are available in Canada - ie Spotify, Pandora ....

But there are lots of others that are, such as VEVO, Crackle.

A lots of new channels are coming online.

So far, I prefer the Roku 3 over the Apple TV (I have that also)
