Help getting started with Roku devices, including setup, connecting your device to your TV, linking a Roku device to your account at my.roku.com/link, adding channels, subscribing to services, and more.
I have Comcast xfinity TV Service using; one x1 HD box, 2 HD TV Boxes and 1 non-HD TV Adapter.
I have Comcast Internet WiFi Service.
I also have subscriptions to SXM, Amazon Prime and Netflix.
Comcast Customer Service tells me I can replace the 2 HD TV Boxes and 1 non-HD TV Adapter with three Roku devices. The 3 Roku devices can be used to stream my Comcast xfinity TV Service and do everything else that Roku can do. Those 3 Comcast devices cost me $26.89+tax per month so am think about making the jump to Roku.
Does that make sense?
Which Roku device does the Roku Community recommend? What is the one-time purchase cost of the Roku device? What is the ongoing monthly cost of the Roku device?
There is NO fee to use a Roku itself. Be VERY careful when creating your Roku account and linking your devices to it. Do everything through this exact link. Do NOT go through a search engine or even accept any "hint" from a browser's address bar/search bar.
Be aware that the Xfinity Strean TV software on Roku is still technically a Beta. Comcast may start charging for it some day. It is also single-tasking. You cannot view the guide while watching TV. The stream will stop. It's also a bit sluggish getting the guide data.
