      Answer

      No and Yes. To access the Roku application itself you do not need an additional subscription, but you will only have access to the free content/channels. The most used applications like netflix, sling, hulu, and amazon video, require individual subscriptions through each of those entities. There are also some channels like ESPN and HBO Go that permit access through your cable provider (meaning If you can watch those general channels on other tvs, you will be able to access those channels through the roku). I hope that helps, but if it doesn't check out https://www.roku.com/how-it-works .

        You just need wifi. No 2nd device needed. You can use your tablet or smartphone as a remote for this tv which makes entering information a lot easier.

        Will this Roku TV work as a regular tv? Such as watching our regular TV channels "without" drawing down on the home wi-fi if we choose? Or is it an Internet only kind of thing that will always operate off the Wi-Fi when it is turned on?   (5 Answers)

            The tv does come with a remote designed around Roku. Roku apps and channels switch just like a normal Roku. However, when connecting to an antenna, you will hit left to show a menu of local channels and then you can scroll up and down to choose the channel you like. Its actually pretty neat. I would highly recommend the RCA amplified antenna

              Answer

              I purchased this tv for the bedroom. When I hooked it up I could not get any signal for wifi. Then I realized that my router was not strong enough to get a signal to the bedroom on the other end of the house. I bought a new stronger router and now it works great.

                Answer

                The volume buttons are located on the side/edge of the remote. You do not see the volume controls when the remote is facing you, turn the remote on its side to see volume controls.

                      Yes, you can stream Amazon Prime. There's an icon on the home screen for selecting that service for streaming. Don't have Prime so haven't tried it, but it's there as an option.

                        Yes. This TV essentially has the Roku built into it, so no need for the stick or other device. It's a Smart TV and the "smart" part is Roku being built-into it.
