Once upon a time, watching a movie at home meant ordering a DVD online, waiting for it to arrive, then having it sit on your coffee table for weeks until you were in the mood to watch it.
Then we invented Roku—the original streaming player. Now, millions of people use Roku to choose what they want to watch instantly. Whether you’re exploring over 600 channels of movies and shows, delving into what really interests you, or just stumbling across something new, Roku makes it happen easily, instantly and affordably. Movie night—or any night—will never be the same.
No PC needed
Just connect Roku to your TV and wireless (Wi-Fi) network at home, and you’re up and streaming in minutes.
With Roku’s simple remote, just choose what you want to watch and it starts instantly. It’s even more convenient than watching a DVD.
No extra monthly payments
Access your existing subscriptions, such as Netflix. Enjoy free films, shows and music, or browse the latest blockbusters available on demand.
More channels, more choice
Roku brings you endless entertainment choices, and we’re adding more all the time. So you’ll always find something new to watch, hear, play and enjoy.
Instant thrills, laughs and chills
With thousands of leading films and TV programmes available from great places, Roku instantly delivers the perfect title to match your mood. It offers the best Netflix experience, featuring up to 1080p HD video plus support for English subtitles. It has your favourite BBC television and radio programmes from the past week with BBC iPlayer. What’s more, there’s a huge range of free films from Crackle. And with new TV programmes and films being continually added, you’ll never be short of something good to watch.
* Crackle channel only available in UK at this time.
Plus even more choices
Roku delivers more than films and TV programmes. You can access a huge selection of streaming entertainment, with more coming at a furious pace. There’s music, photo and video sharing, games, or you can browse the latest international news, sports, clips and more.
With NOW TV on Roku, your movie night just got a serious upgrade. Get unlimited access to the latest Sky Movies - up to 20 new premieres added every month. Watch it now on your big screen TV with no contract and a low monthly subscription fee.

Fling those Angry Birds!
Need a break from watching films? The flagship Roku 2 XS features a Bluetooth remote with sensors for motion-based gameplay, as well as game-ready buttons to support intense action. Hit games available include the Angry Birds series, Galaga, and Storm in a Teacup, with more games are added all the time.
It's playing your song
With Roku in the room, play music anytime. Enjoy music channels like TuneInRadio, and listen to as much music as you want. There are also other great music channels from Classical TV, Radio Paradise and Soma FM. Discover new music from around the world or rediscover your old favorites.
You’re in control
Our free Roku app for iPhone® and Android™ turns your phone into the ultimate Roku command center. Instantly start a TV programme, replay a favorite movie moment, browse through the 300+ channels in the Channel Store, or add new channels to your lineup – all from the palm of your hand. There’s even a useful virtual keyboard – if you prefer to type rather than swipe.
Play your favourites
Wouldn’t it be great to get all those songs and photos on your phone instantly on your TV, without reading an instruction manual? Ah, great minds think alike. Our Roku app for iOS® and Android™ devices lets you display an instant slide show with all your favourite mug shots. Put a song to it – or an entire album. It just takes a tap.
The smallest footprint
Barely larger than a beermat, Roku is the smallest streaming player ever – perfect for slipping neatly alongside any TV or entertainment centre. It also has a tiny energy footprint, using less than 2 Watts when you’re watching a movie. That’s less power than a night light, 15 times less than a DVR and 60 times less than popular games consoles.
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!
