Roku

What is Roku?

Roku allows you to watch paid and free video content on your TV via the Internet. Movie and TV streaming services like YouTube, Sling TV, Hulu, Amazon, Netflix, and others download on to Roku devices, like how apps load onto a smartphone.

How to Connect Roku to TV?

Roku plugs into your TV using an HDMI cable and connects to the internet via a wired or wireless connection to your home network.

How Roku Works?

Roku downloads videos from the internet, and let you watch on your TV. While Roku downloads or “streams” the video, the video isn’t saved as it’s watched. “Channels” or Apps are programs you load onto your Roku device that provide you with various TV shows and movies.

 

Roku Devices

Roku offers Roku Set-top-box and Roku Stick. You can connect your TV with either of the devices.
