Re: Do we really make a difference?

Why would CBS want to use Rokus? The big broadcast networks are very protective of their DMAs and that requires a robust and secure method to verify location. Roku lacks this. CBS, which has a significant investment in Syncbak, is doing some streaming in local markets, but only to devices which hav...

PBS ** but catastrophegirl said it now has commercials? **

technically it may only have one commercial. but one night i counted 6 airings of said commercial. i know more now about Viking River Cruises than I ever thought I would, but also enough to make me never want to hear the name again

Re: Movie and TV shows Channels ..that DONT have commercials

even PBS has commercials now and that used to be their thing - publicly funded, no commercials. most of the roku channels that i know of with a paid version and a free version have the free version because it is ad supported. to get ad free you pretty much have to subscribe to something

Re: Would this cable allow me to use component?

if you must have a component (red/blue/green) on a roku, i suggest checking ebay/craigslist for a used N1000. it has got component, composite and HDMI, all with regular inputs. (the next model after that, the SD, does not have HDMI and frankly, kind of sucks. my friend has one. in her closet) http:/...

Re: Streaming issues w/N1000

i've been getting some similar issues (watching netflix, device bumps out to the netflix menu or the episode title menu, or force rebooting itself) with my N1000 lately, but i've also been getting IDENTICAL issues with my roku 1 XD/s with the N1000 i do always assume the power supply is the primary ...

Re: Best list of private channels

I understand that there are a number of channels that the developer has published as private but nevertheless wants to be available for a wide distribution. I don't really understand why developers do this, unless the channel involves pornography or for other reasons wouldn't be accepted by Roku as...

if you have a computer nearby but no smartphone, remoku is a useful option to substitute for a remote as well. and excellent to have when you want to search and use a real keyboard too

Re: Do we really make a difference?

i think so, if you are active about it with the content owner. i'd been providing feedback to PBS since spring of 2011 for an official channel and eventually caught the attention of a PBS employee in the public something or other department who started looking into it. i'm not sure how much personal...

Re: Minimum internet speed required

you may run into some challenges trying to watch HD content, especially from amazon instant video. if you have the ability to hook the roku3 up with a wired connection you may find that to be your best video quality for watching anything

Re: Roku 3 Questions-deciding to buy
