  • Search capability – new voice search introduced (Roku 3)
  • Top seller of streaming media services in 2014

Bottom Line:

Roku brings a wealth internet content to your TV via a “puck” size media hub.

Many sites have rated Roku as the best streaming media service they’ve reviewed due to its high versatility.
