Roku set up in one city to be sent to another

I want to buy my technology challenged parents a Roku because I think it will be easier for them to navigate.  Can I set up the channels with all the log in information on my tv in one city, then send it to my parents for them to plug it into their HDMI and have it ready to stream?

Re: Roku set up in one city to be sent to another

If you really want it to be plug and play at your parents', do this before setting up the Roku:

Configure your router to use the same net name (SSID) and password as is used by your parents' router.  That way, when it starts up at your parents' the Roku will be pre-configured to connect to their net.
