Re: Can (Roku) be used in an Assisted living facility that has WiFi?

one thing to consider especially if they are using a communal tv for the roku, are payments/purchases. not meant to sound negative at all but make it 'child proof' so someone else can't accidentally or otherwise buy or rent something on your family member's account. or if another resident or a stick...
