I adore my Roku player with a love that borders on the unnatural. I’m not ashamed to admit it. It’s not unusual for us to let a Netflix disc languish on the entertainment center for months, but the Netflix Livestreaming? We are totally getting out money out of that, trust me.
If you’ve been on the fence about getting your own Roku player, maybe this will tip you over: Right now Amazon is offering $10 off the Roku XD when you link up your Twitter account and thereby let them auto-tweet about the deal. I think that’s… well, a little hokey, sure, but I’d happily take the $10 off, y’know? It makes it just $70 shipped, and maybe you’re less of a television junkie than I am (quite likely), but I probably watched the rental equivalent of $70 worth in the first month we had ours. Heh.
If you don’t have Netflix yet, you can sign up for a free one-month trial after you get your Roku, to see have you like it.
(Yeah, last night we finished Arrested Development and I added five seasons of Weeds to our instant queue. I hear admitting you have a problem is the first step, which I plan to get to just as soon as I finish watching my shows….)
