My Wal-Mart stocks Rokus; I asked about it in the electronics department, and nobody knew that they had it. They were hidden from view in a locked case at knee level. I was not impressed with their placement.
4200R [Roku 3]

Formerly:
3100X [Roku 2 XS]
2050X [Roku XD]

42" VIZIO via HDMI @ 1080p

My local Wal-Mart now stocks them next to the Blu-ray players.

my local Walmart has a few on the counter of the register and nowhere else. The few times I've looked they always have junk and papers blocking view of them. How do they expect to sell stuff?

Sounds like Wal-Mart. They give iPad 2s their own case in plain view, but the Roku is hidden.
If it doesn't work, keep beating it with the hammer till it does.

well by rights, Apple buys that display area, and so does the manufacturer of products on end caps.. But Walmart could at least stick them in their regular shelving lol

They have them on the shelf at my Wal-Mart. It's in the home theater section. Maybe all those other Wal-Marts have lazy workers in the electronic section.
