A new way to watch TV!!!

Have you ever found yourself searching for things to watch on TV and simply find the same things over and over again?? You could always watch a DVD,  that favorite episode of one of your favorite TV Shows that you have on DVR… again, but sometimes that just gets old fast. My husband has many many times complained that we were spending so much money and never seeing anything he wanted to watch or what he did want to watch he had already seen. We soon found ourselves cutting down on channels and streaming Netflix through DVD players or game consoles.

Then I heard about Roku... Ro who? No I’m not speaking a foreign language..

Roku is the best selling streaming device there is around, it makes streaming through your TV instead of you PC a snap.  Roku recently sent me the Roku XD box to review for them, it streams in 1080p, has built in wireless with an extended range, works on virtually any TV, and has over 500 channels to choose from, many having free movies to watch.

When we took the Roku out the first thing that I noticed was the size, its so small, smaller then a hockey puck, how in the world could this pack as much punch as it claims.. I was baffled. The set up was quick and painless and with the compact size it fits just about anywhere and grabs a WiFi  signal enabling you to stream Netflix, Hulu plus, and many other channels from your TV.

 

Look how tiny it is compared to the DVD!!!

Once we got everything hooked up there were just a few steps online that we had to take to set it all up. Once your done registering your Roku it lets you choose which channels you would like to add to the device. ( Don’t worry you can add and take away them at will) Certain channels do cost money, but in the long run you SAVE!! The remote is tiny and has few buttons making it hard to go wrong. In fact its so easy Kenna has no problem putting on her own shows.

Since we have received the Roku XD we have bought 2 more and ditched the dish all together!!! I pay $6.99 a month  for my Netflix account and $6.99 a month for my Hulu Plus acct. I don’t miss anything, With Hulu plus I get to watch all of my shows ( only a day later) and get addicted to some new ones without being concerned that they may delete or ill forget to record them!! I am saving over $120.00 a month by switching, which makes me happy and hubby over the moon!!!!

Roku has many different models with different price ranges, some even play games!! The Roku XD retails for $79.99 but right now if you purchase one at Roku.com they are taking $10.00 off!! Wouldn’t this high tech money saving machine be a fantastic gift for Mothers Day!!

Ok so here is a really really cool opportunity!!! Roku is letting me giveaway 1 Roku to a Suburban Coupon Mom Reader!! Simply fill out the Rafflecopter below to be entered!!
