Bullard, TX

At first I thought the voice search was a gimmick on the remote but now I use it all the time and it's very accurate.

Detroit, MI

I am 60 years old and sort of technically challenged. I bought the Roku3 at the suggestion of my brother and was able to set it up and start watching Netflix within 20 minutes. Easy to follow directions. I'm a happy camper!

New Jersey

Super easy to set up and very user friendly. Tons of channels to choose from and lots of them are free.

Common questions

Will Roku 3 work with my TV?

Roku 3 works with virtually any TV with an HDMI® connection. You can plug your Roku 3 directly into your TV or receiver depending on your preference.

Works with my TV

What do I need to set up?

Setting up your Roku® player requires that you have a broadband Internet connection, a wireless router (and/or wired for Roku 2 or Roku 3), power (our lawyers made us say it), an HDMI® cable (sold separately), and an HDTV. Once you have all of those ingredients, just plug in your Roku player. Our guided set up will walk you through updating and installing channels. You should be up and streaming in no time – no nerdy nephew needed.

Which player is right for me?

That's a toughie, the Roku 1 is perfect for older TVs, and the Roku® Streaming Stick™ offers the best value. Step up to the Roku 2 for some serious speed. And if you want the best with all the bells and whistles, including voice search, Roku 3 is the way to go.
