    Obviously I love my Roku. My Roku has taken away ever hearing me say there is nothing on TV tonight. It has truly turned my tv into an entertainment system. The only blues I have about it is my loss of my much loved TV.COM. A dream I have for it is a TV Land channel, along with ME TV and the THIS channels. One can dream.

      if ME TV and THIS are included in your local channels along with ABC, CBS, etc, you can always get them as well as all of your other local channels via an over the air (OTA) antenna for about $30
