Chromecast only works with youtube and Google products, I think. I have one, works great but is limited. We use a plain old HDMI cable attached to the laptop for amazon prime. Chromecast uses your mobile device as the remote.
Maybe it works with Netflix, I forget.

I just took a peak at Chromecast.
It does work with Netflix, Hulu, etc, but you don't get the channels that Roku offers.

If we were only going to use it to stream Netflix, etc, this would be a great option, but we need/want the channels as well.

I love my Roku. We have had it since we moved to Ohio and decided that having cable is not in our budget. We only have two TVs, so we move the Roku back and forth, sometimes. We also have an old laptop hooked up to our living room computer. For things that are not available on the Roku we download it on one of the desktops and play it on the tv through our laptop. It has worked for us.

The Roku has been one of our best investments.

Back to the question about sports…i know we could get sports that are on network TV through the digital signal, not the best option here, the signal is interuptet too often to not be a major frustration. How does the roku work with "choosing" channels? Is it a premium price or a subscription internet choice, and if it's that, why not just use an HDMI cable?
Sorry if these are dumb questions.

Most of the channels for the Roku are free, but I am not sure how it works with sports (we are not sports people).

I don't understand what you are asking about the HDMI cables. The Roku can use both HDMI and composite cables.

I've used the Roku and Roku 2. It works great. Hulu Plus, Netflix and Amazon Prime. Between the three I can watch nearly all of my favorite shows and movies. There are other channels like Pandora and Vevo for music. Totally worth it.

Roku is incredible--BUT if sports is a big thing in your household, I would hesitate. Although it is changing everyday, as of today I think the ESPN channel ALSO requires a cable subscription.

Live sports is the only thing keeping cable alive these days, and they are digging in their heels.


I'm not the winner, I'm the prize.
