What you need
Really, just two things: 1) A TV--new or old*. 2) Broadband Internet connection with a speed of at least 1.5 Mbps (like DSL). A major bonus would be a comfy couch.
* Roku 3 works with HDTVs only.

Wouldn't it be great to get all the photos, songs and videos* you keep on your phone instantly on your TV—without reading an instruction manual? Ah, great minds think alike. Our free Roku app for iOS and Android lets you post that vacation slide show or your favourite album right on the big screen for everyone to enjoy, and even choose music to play along with your photo slideshow.

This small. That fast.
Roku 3 is the most powerful, responsive streaming box we've ever built – to get you to your entertainment as quickly as you can choose between a Bond marathon and a chick flick. It features the latest wireless technology for even better performance in more rooms in the house. And it can stream a movie using less power than a nightlight (and 30 times less than a popular game console). Wow.
From the simple remote to the easy-to-use interface, Roku was designed to please everyone. All you need to get started is a high-speed Internet connection (and an HDTV, for Roku 3). With every Roku product, the built-in wireless and guided setup mean you'll be up and running in minutes. And we bet you don't even have to call your nerdy nephew for help.
What Internet connection do I need?You need a high-speed Internet connection with a speed of at least 1.5 Mbps (such as mid-level Broadband). If you are unable to connect the player directly to your cable or Broadband modem you may also need a wired or wireless router. A faster broadband connection may be required to watch some channels.
