WHAT IS ROKU, (per wikipedia) - The Roku Streaming Player (or simply Roku) is a series of set-top boxes manufactured by Roku, Inc. Roku partners provide over-the-top content in the form of channels. A Roku streaming device gets data (the video stream) via a wired or WiFi connection to an internet router. The data is output via an audio cable, video cable or both signals over an HDMI cable. The device can be connected to any television set (or other device) with appropriate input connections.
Roku calls a stream source on the internet a channel. Channels can provide on-demand content or live streaming video. Both free and paid channels are available; they include services such as PBS, YouTube, Netflix, Hulu Plus, Amazon Instant Video, Crunchyroll, WWE Network, HBO Go, and others. Users can add or remove different channels through the Roku Channel Store. https://www.roku.com
