Roku 2....The best Gadget I have bought!
on 13 February 2014
So why did I purchase this Roku 2?
Like a lot of people lately we had had enough of Sky`s frequent price rises (5 in one year for us last year) and what for? More repeats…yeah right!
So we decided to do something about it….and after several days of reviewing various options, although we are limited as we do have the luxury of Fibre-optic, we opted for Roku 2.
I ordered the Roku 2 from Amazon after reading and re-reading the reviews and it arrived well packaged two days later (along with the Lupo Gold Plated HDMI leads).
I opened the box with slight trepidation, as I`m not the most technically minded of souls when it comes to setting things up, but as I read the instructions, I found it by far the easiest and straight forward set of instructions I have ever read, not only are they written in layman’s terms, but there are useful comments too. Also the on screen instructions are clear and easy to follow and allow you to go at your own pace.
Within an hour I had connected and set up the Roku 2 and registered with NetFlix and NowTV (I selected the Entertainment package so I still got Sky Atlantic and Sky1 and Discovery, but without paying the extortionate prices of Sky Movies as I get all the movies I want from NetFlix in great HD quality and at a fraction of the cost of Sky).
I have not yet played any of the games on the Roku 2, but once I start there will be no stopping me.
Without doubt this Roku 2 is the best Tech Gadget I have ever purchased….Even my parents have taken to it and are often watching a movie from NetFlix without my previously needed guidance.
