"Roku makes it possible to cut the cable."3.0 starson by knowwonnose
Pros: I cut cable and saved $30+ per month. It works well and has some great features and services, Netflix, Amazon, NBC News, MLS Soccer are among my favorites.
Cons: No Youtube. Most good services require paid subscriptions. Netflix is worth it, but others cut into my savings. I had to turn off all HD features to make it under my Comcast imposed data limits.
Summary: I don't mind the sacrifices I made, but you might. Consider the cost. If cutting cable is worth it to you, Roku can help make that happen.
Roku would be better if they would add a live news feed, YouTube, and ESPN3. Get those and I won't feel that I've made any sacrifices at all.
