Already an Amazon Prime and Netflix subscriber can i view through Roku?

I already have paid subscriptions to Prime and Netflix. I want to view on a non-smart TV using external Roku device.  Before buying the Roku device I want to check if it will allow me to do what I want to achieve.

Yes you can.  That's what I do.  I consider Roku as a dashboard that keeps everything organized.

Not only Amazon and Netflix, but on a Roku player you can get Hulu, Vudu, YouTube and a vast amount of other content, both free and subscription based. But yes, if you have Amazon Prime and Netflix, you can easily add your account to a Roku player and watch them.
