    I must have been through Crackle 1000 times, and I’ve yet to find seinfeld…what gives? Is it something specific to my model (N1101)?

    • Draces1

      As far as I can tell, they don’t offer Seinfeld on the roku version of crackle. But you can watch selected episodes on your pc/iPad.

    • Hi Tom, our mistake – Seinfeld is not currently available on Roku. Sorry about that! We didn’t mean to give you false hope. 🙁 We’ll let you know if/when Seinfeld becomes available.

    • natnjr

      I watched Seinfeld’s new series “Comedians in cars getting coffee ” on Crackle, it was pretty good

    This is news?

    • Kevin Wilson

      Definition of news: “Newly received or noteworthy information, esp. about recent or important events.” Streaming titles newly available on Netflix, Hulu, Crackle or Amazon = Noteworthy information for Roku users. So, yeah.

  • Guest

    You really dare put up that crackle is offering Seinfeld when it is not! At least for Roku.. I wish I would’ve spent the extra $30 on a Bluray player. The only thing I use it for is netflix and amazon both of which are available on pretty much everything. What makes a roku so special? International channels?

    • Happy with my purchase

      I’ve got a Samsung Smart TV, Blu-Ray Player and the Roku. Roku does such a better job of delivering a higher quality picture and absolutely no re-buffering problems like on the others. I even went and bought another for my mother-in-law. It is one of those products that simply does it’s job better than the others. I liken it to buying a McIntosh Labs Amplifier, quietly better.

    An extra $30 for a bluray player? I use my Roku to watch Netflix, Amazon, Hulu along with other content unique to Roku like CNET, TED, Revison3 and others. You can’t find that on a bluray. Plus it plays games!

  • Joseph_david

    Will roku ever be able to stream music files from the amazon cloud?

  • Sharpbro62

    It would be nice if you could stream the Sirius app more easier without Orb caster or the other plugin that doesn’t seem to work either.

  • Guest

    My recommendation for a day keeping warm on the couch : watch the whole Season 1 of “Downton Abbey”. Outstanding!

  • one of the best items in my life besides my Lap Top I love Roku, I seem to find something to satisfy my visual and hearing needs.

  • Stevekacer

    Roku , What about 3D Movies ? That would be NICE !

  • Ebmayes

    when is Roku going to offer PBS & NPR on it??? We used to get those channels free with an antenna!

    • I still get PBS channels free with an antenna. Get an antenna?

  • Where are the new angry birds?

  • Fkindyf

    Tomorrow is NFL Championship playoffs, so I won’t be watching anything else. But, if that wasn’t on, I’d settle in with a movie like Romancing the Stone, Quigley Down Under or some other feel good movie to warm up with.

    • Babadgirl

  • Hey, these four are pretty interesting to watch. It is really a good time pass along with humor, knowledge and a complete pack for the season.

  • great article

  • illusionmajik

    Perfect sunday. Start out with streaming some Pandora to shake those dreary winter blues. Then while sitting on the couch under some blankets with some breakfast, watching some Dr Who.

  • Guest

    It is really a good time pass along with humor, to give me freedo from my stress London man with van service.

  • Sonnyca
