There is a world of streaming devices out there to enhance your viewing and entertainment pleasure. The question is what one is the right one for you? Well, I have been on a mission to try and make the world of streaming devices a little less confusing for my fans.
So the streaming device that I have been putting to the test is the Roku Streaming Stick.

When my Roku Streaming Stick arrived, I had it set up in no time flat. I just had to plug the streaming stick into the HDMI on the back of my television. Then just put the included batteries in the remote and we were ready to go.
We all really enjoyed going through all the available entertainment channels on the Roku Streaming Stick and marking our favorites. There are so many entertainment channels and a ton of them are Free. Yep Free!
Of course there are the usual ones that people are familiar with, such as Netflix. We have a subscription to Netflix, so we put that channel under our favorites.
So why am I happy with my Roku Streaming Stick?
There are a ton of reasons….
*Easy to use
*Countless entertainment channels
*Easy to use remote
Here is one big reason that I love the Roku Streaming Stick…..quality.
We used to run our Netflix through the smart blu-ray player that we have. It was always freezing, having trouble loading the movies, and losing connection. We were beyond frustrating. Well, since we stream Netflix through our Roku Streaming Stick, we have not had one single issue with our Netflix. It is enjoyable again to watch Netflix.
A common question is do I need a Roku device for each television and the answer is yes. Having said that, the Roku Streaming Stick is portable and can be moved to different televisions in the house.
Personally, I find the Roku Streaming Stick affordable and think it is more convenient to have a Roku Streaming Device for each television. If you have more than one Roku Streaming Stick, you can link them all to your one Roku account so that all your streaming sticks are synced.
We are very excited with our Roku Streaming Stick. We love all the channels we have now. There are amazing channels for every interest. There are also the well known channels such as Google Play, Cineplex Store, Cinema Now, YouTube, GoPro, NHL, Sesame Street Go, Snag Films, and Spotify, just to name a few from the over 2000 channels available on the Roku Streaming Stick.
The bottom line on the Roku Streaming Stick is that everyone in my family loves it. It is an all in one entertainment solution for the entire family. We love, love, love our Roku Streaming Stick.
