I struggled using Netflix, Amazon Prime and VUDU with my smart tv for years. It would take many minutes to load if it loaded at all. I would reboot the internet and tv to no avail. The internet speed was sufficient but it was frustrating enough to avoid streaming. I got a Roku and was totally shocked at how fast and efficient it was. It is a joy to use. I love how you can add and subtract apps. I am now a huge advocate for Roku.
