Considering Roku


Recommended Posts

In order for my parents to watch a few videos like the assembly which they cant' always attend it's downloaded onto a usb/flash drive (they have no computer) My parents tv (a smart tv) doesn't have a usb port so to make this a lot easier, I was thinking if I got a roku then I think some of them have a usb port.  They would also be able to watch the broadcast on the tv through the downloadable app on the device?  Am I right in this?   I have an apple tv (3rd generation) , which is great for me, but it has no usb port so it wouldn't help.   I don't know much about roku so I was hoping someone here might be able to confirm if I'm right before I head out and get one.

There is a Roku discussion here somewhere...

Search Roku in JWTalk and you will find the Topic. I don't know how to paste the link... sorry

Roku ultra has USB and micro SD slot.  It's the player I bought last year and it works great.

Best Buy has a $19.99 special price for Firestick this weekend. It plugs into the TV hdmi, and comes with a micro usb lead and adaptor for power.

Streams from your home wifi.

My son-in-law loaded it all up. Now has the JW broadcast as a shortcut on the home screen. Easy to operate now, but it takes a bit to load all the 'add-ons' like Kodi etc...

Hard to beat the price though...
