Re: Roku Is far More Limited Than Its Tech Capabilities Allo

To the OP: You are right on all counts. But I think you are looking at it the wrong way. This way of broadcasting video is still very new and the business model is going to be tweaked and tweaked and tweaked over the next few years. What it comes down to is that "old" media is holding onto...

Re: Buy a new Roku, get 1 month of Hulu+

It really isn't about getting a "Hulu+" discount as much as it is about new buyers getting something that long time users don't get. I know it's kind of standard practice in sales to do this, but it shouldn't be. I'm not really upset with Roku about it because they need to sell boxes. It j...

Buy a new Roku, get 1 month of Hulu+

I see that there is a special where if you buy a new Roku player you get 1 month of Hulu+ for free. Nice. But no love for the early Roku adopters who took a chance on an unknown device that only promised to stream Netflix for $99.00 oh so long ago? I guess like that commercial says, today's buyers a...

Re: Remind me why I'm trying Hulu Plus again?

You get more- the ability to easily watch shows from Hulu Plus ON TV, which you can't easily do with Hulu. You also get full seasons. It's a give/take right now. Let's face it, though. People wanted full Hulu on their TV. They wanted to be able to watch all the shows they can watch on the free Hulu...

Re: Remind me why I'm trying Hulu Plus again?

I was just hoping that I'd essentially be able to see the whole Hulu library on my TV. I'm more interested in expanding content available personally. You know, when you pay for something that is free you usually expect something extra for that money, not less. LOL. I've decided to wait and see how ...

Re: Netflix raises prices and has streaming only option

What I want is a DVD plan that enables me to pause DVD shipments and still watch instantly; I don't want a red envelope sitting on my counter, I want it back in circulation. (Tell me if I'm missing a way to do this). Just keep one movie in your queue at a time. That way you only get a movie when yo...

Re: Netflix raises prices and has streaming only option

A price increase is no surprise. Netflix was bound to raise prices with all the deals they are making for online streaming. There is still a ton of stuff I want to watch that isn't on streaming so I imagine many of us will stick with at least 1 DVD out at a time. However, I'm beginning to imagine a ...

Re: Remind me why I'm trying Hulu Plus again?

There have been a lot of negative reviews for Hulu+, so people who are less than impressed are not alone. I say give it time. You are truly on the cutting edge with streaming broadcast television to the Roku box. Give Hulu+ some time to mature and figure itself out. There's a lot of craziness with t...

Not quite like a Roku.. Not in very many peoples' price range like a Roku. It's a lot of money for what it does. I disagree. Roku does one thing right now: it plays video and some audio from the net. Not even from the entire net, just from certain companies that are willing to put their content on ...

The iPad is essentially an iPod for books, internet browsing, movies, and music. It's not meant to be a computer like what you have at home or like the laptop you take on the road. The more I think about it, the more I think it is akin to the Roku. The Roku is not a computer like what sits on your d...

Physical media for backups is different then sales of physical media. Once all the old timers die off prerecorded music CDs will cease to exist. True about backups. But until studios see computers as something other than home copy machines they'll never be as open as we want them to be. Is it possi...

I don't know if physical media will eventually go away or not. I know the first time my hard drive crashed and I lost all my music I became a HUGE fan of physical media. I still burn all my music I get from iTunes to CDs. I can't imagine spending money to own movies I stream and not be able to have ...

I will stick with DVDs for the stuff I buy. I don't want Amazon or others dictating to me when I can or cannot watch a movie I've bought.

I think we're so early in the internet-tv revolution that nobody really knows what will happen. What I think studios and networks are concerned about is them becoming irrelevant. At some point, somebody will invest big money into an online network with premium talent involved. That will signal the d...
