Re: streaming device ,

A "Roku TV" and a Roku stand-alone device will provide the same experience.  A generic smart TV that isn't Roku may have "The Roku Channel", but that's not the same as a Roku device and is no substitute for a Roku device.  There are a few streaming devices not made by Roku and they are all very different.
