RokuStreamingStickThere is a very interesting new Roku coming out.  It’s called the Roku Streaming Stick.  There are lots of streaming devices out there that yet you streaming pictures,  shows and movies to your TV.  If fact there are a few different Roku models out there.  What makes this one stand out is, its the size of a usb thumb drive that plugs right into a standard HDMI port.  To get power to the devices there is a micro USB.  If you TV has a powered USB port you can plug it into that or it comes with a power adaptor.  The remote doesn’t need line of sight either because it runs off of Wi-Fi.  All the info I am reading says there will be over 700 channels of content.  Of course there will be your premium stuff like Netflix.  But there will be other free stuff.  I know some of the free stuff will be very old and boring stuff.  But there might be some good stuff as well.  However for the price, $60 its well worth looking at.  You can pre-order it now.  It set to come out soon.  Amazon says March 28, 2014 and Future Shop says April 4, 2014.  Going to look into getting one of these.
