What Roku model is for watching TV on Windows 10 computers?

I'd like to watch TV programs on a Windows 10 computer that has an HDMI port. Is there a Roku model for doing that?

Thank you in advance.

Re: What Roku model is for watching TV on Windows 10 computers?

The HDMI port on your computer is output only. You can't connect an external device and have it appear on the computer display. The only way that could work is if the computer has a video capture card with an HDMI input. Those are not common at all, and no consumer computer has one by default.

So the answer is none. But there's no such device from any other manufacturer.
