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 am thinking of purchasing a Roku Streaming product mainly to watch live free TV that Roku offers. I am if Roku will work with my Panasonic Viera LCD HDTV. Right now, I have a Playstation 3 hooked to the TV and also have Netflix. However, my brand of TV does not offer an option for Roku TV. I am also wondering what would be the best Roku Device to purchase. Any comments/suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks
Re: Will Roku Work With A Panasonic Viera LCD HDTV?
As long as you have an available HDMI input, any current Roku will work. For basic use, the Express is fine. If you don't want to see the device, you can get one of the Stick models. If you must use wired Ethernet or want to use a USB stick to view pictures or home movies, then you need the Ultra.
All current models support the same channels. The higher-end models do support voice commands with the included remote. The Express uses a plain IR remote. The Stick and Ultra models use a WiFi remote that is paired to the Roku and works without having to be aimed.
