Good news everyone! If you’ve listened to us drone on and on about the future of streaming media, and the inevitable death of physical discs, you can now score a Roku HD-XR from Amazon for $99.
The standard definition Roku box usually runs $99, but for today only, you can get the high definition version for under $100 (is usually costs $119).
With this box, you can stream movies from your Netflix Watch Instantly Queue (you’ll need an account, but you don’t have to pay any additional fees), as well as stream Amazon video on demand titles. To see the full channel listing of the content available to you with this box, check out Roku’s homepage. Don’t forget about all of the Criterion titles that are available to watch via Netflix, the list is pretty incredible these days.
Before investing in my Blu-ray player, which has Netflix streaming capabilities, I was seriously considering investing in a Roku box, simply because I found it to be the easiest to install, as well as the best option for viewing my Netflix queue.
I’m linking the image below to the Amazon page, and if you decide to purchase one, a small portion of the sale will go towards keeping this blog and podcast alive and kicking.
