It's ridiculously easy

From the simple, intuitive remote to the easy-to-use interface, Roku makes streaming simple for everyone. All you need to get started is a high-speed Internet connection (and a TV, of course). The built-in wireless and guided setup means you can be up and running in minutes: you don't need to be a nerd!

Plug it in. Add to network. Enjoy!

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.
