    So do you get all of your major channels like ABC,NBC,Fox Cbs and your normal standard cable channels like TBS or do you have to purchase subscriptions for all of them   (5 Answers)

      Answer

      If I were you, I'd check with Roku online chat or Cust. Serv. and ask if you need cable for at least accessing Nexflix, etc. and ask if any other channels can be accessed directly through Roku, skipping cable completely. I have internet bundle and very basic econ. pkg. with Cox, so don't know how it would work. But I keep seeing ads about bypassing the "tyranny" of cable. Worth a look... .

      Answer

      I have not had any problems with dropped signals with this unit. I have an excellent router though that has 5g service. Make sure your router placement is central to everything in the house.

      To download the channel it's free, but to actually use the service you'd have to buy a subscription for Netflix, Hulu, etc.

      Answer

      Yes. I would think so. My TV is a six-year-old Sony Bravia, LCD. It works perfectly with my TV. I don't have any problem so far. I used it for Netflix and Amazon prime. I purchased this product about two weeks ago. Hope this helps.

  • Question
    I see the Roku Premier specifies that it works with 802.11ac. Does that imply that it also works with previous 802.11a/b/g/n? If anyone could confirm that, it would be greatly appreciated, as my current home wifi network does not support 802.11ac.   (5 Answers)
