    I have owned the Roku for about 4 days and I am absolutley thrilled with it! I live in a condo which has condo cable, which means I cannot pick my cable provider. They provide you with 13 channels for $27.00/month. I am going to fire the condo cable and watch TV on Roku. I am very happy with my Roku purchase :-)
