Roku streaming media players are a favorite among TV watchers because they offer a larger number of channels—Netflix, HBO Go, Hulu, Amazon Prime, etc—than any other streaming media player. Plus, they’re extremely easy to use. You can even stream movies directly from your computer hard drive—no HDMI cable necessary!—using the “Plex” channel. Once you’ve added Plex to your Roku menu and downloaded the app on your computer, the set-up is simple and straightforward. Some models also have headphone output and a voice-search feature, both of which are accessible via the remote control or the Roku app on your phone. Once you’ve created a Roku account, you can use it for access across multiple devices. It only takes a few minutes to connect and let the streaming begin.
