There are many reasons to love the month of February. Aside from holidays like Valentine’s Day and President’s Day (hopefully a three-day weekend of streaming is in your future!), the month is loaded with entertainment. It’s time to fall back in love your favorite TV shows like Billions, Girls and The Walking Dead, and get to know some hot new flings including the highly anticipated Santa Clarita Diet on Netflix and 24: Legacy on FOX.

    Looks like you’ve got an old copy for Powerless. They retooled a bit after the initial pilot. It is now more Better Off Ted rather than The Office.

    • Thanks for letting us know, Stuart! How did you like the pilot?

      • stuart

        I haven’t watched it yet but with Danny Pudi and Ron Funches, I remain optimistic.

  • Anita Rushlow

    I am new to Roku. Will I be able to watch Grey’s Anatomy in real time? Or will I have to wait? If so, how long? Thanks for your help!

    • MARCI BROWN

      It depends. I don’t have cable anymore, but I do have a Playstation Vue subscription. I can watch it live or “record” it Otherwise, I can’t think of another way you can watch it live/ Playstation Vue, Sling, or the CBS roku channel, but you have to pay a monthly fee for any of those.

      • Matt Reid

        Find a relative that has a cable or satellite service and see if they will let you have their pwd. You put that in your Roku and free ABC CBS NBC AMC A&E, etc. Cost you nothing and Cost your relative nothing to let you have it.

    • I don’t know of any live options for the major networks on Roku. DirecTV’s streaming service should launch soon, but they haven’t finished the app/channel yet. For now, I think you’d need a Hulu+ subscription. That’s an ABC show, right? Most of the network stuff I watch is available next day on Hulu.

      • Matt Reid

        ABC does for sure. I use it all the time.

    • Matt Reid

      YESS, ABC app for ROKU has real time viewing. The only thing you do not see is local commercials. The screen goes to the ABC logo when a local commercial in your area is playing. ON the ABC APP the live viewing is all the way at the bottom of the screen after the listing of all the shows. I use it all the time. Showtime and CBS also have live viewing. As things change they all will

    As long as I have an internet connection can I watch any program
    that roku offers? I do not have cable or satellite, just a subscription to netflix, amazon prime, and vudu.

    • MARCI BROWN

      Yep!

    • No, it’s not a piracy box. If the content is from HBO, then you will need an HBO subscription. You can get that from Roku or as an add on to Hulu or Amazon Prime, I think.
