Over 1000 Channels
For many years, I had cable TV. It was expensive, most channels were junk, and customer service was terrible. Then I discovered some wonderful alternatives. First I learned I could get 28 high definition channels FREE with an inexpensive UHF antenna pointed in the correct direction. Soon after, I discovered Roku. Now I would not even consider cable or satellite TV. I estimate I have saved close to $5,000 since I cancelled my cable TV subscription.<br /><br />Roku has over 1,000 channels, including many that are free. The only two channels I pay for are Acorn TV, which is all British, and Amazon Prime, which provides a vast selection of movies and TV shows. Acorn cost about $30 PER YEAR, and Amazon Prime runs about $80 per year, but includes free two day shipping for many Amazon products.<br /><br />Roku is user friendly, and allows quick, easy access to favorite channels. Many educational channels are available. The variety of channels and program material is astounding, but easy to manage. I consider Roku to be one of the best values available to consumers.
