I've had mine for several years too - and finally dumped DirecTV about 4 months ago. I haven't missed it at all! I do get streaming Netflix, Amazon, Vudu and Hulu. And it seems that every time I check there are new channels being added to the Roku. If you any of you are classical music or jazz fans, check out classicaltv. It's really excellent. - sheureka

Pub-D-Hub is an awesome channel. Lots of great CLASSIC old movies, shows and even commercials.

The Roku is great, but I use Boxee and Kylo since I have a HDMI cable run to my TV.

Sheureka, do you get Vudu on your Roku? If so, please tell me how.

FWIW, Roku has an HDMI output port.

Love my Roku. Running Plex Channel on Roku and Plex server on Linux box. Torrent to Plex server folder and voila, your own custom Netflix.

BTW: Chromecast has Plex on it now too.

Since 2011 I build a full fledged HTPC which can record the free OTA signals for later viewing. I still have Kylo installed in case I want my netflix or anything else.
