    Fox news channel on roku2xs, says streaming live from 9am-3pm (eastern) every weekday. But when I tune to fox news channel, it only has selected news clips from a couple days ago? What am I doing wrong? or is it not really streaming live?

  • Roku 2 has an APP to reproduce video from the memory card …?

    Well, it’s cheaper, for one thing. Only the top model of Roku (the Roku 2 XS) compares in price to your average Boxee. You can get an lower-end model of Roku 2 model for half the price (such as the and the ), and all you’d be sacrificing is a higher level of HD and/or a USB/Ethernet port.

    Operational speed is something I consider extremely important in a living room box you'll use every day. In my speed tests the Roku 3 (both the old 2013 and new 2015 versions), the 2016 Stick and the Roku 2 simply flew around the bases, responding equally fast to button presses, launching and navigating apps, populating thumbnails, grabbing search results and whizzing around the system menus. When it comes to getting your shows on-screen pronto, the new Rokus will outrun most cable boxes, disc players and Smart TV systems, not to mention your phone (that's my jab).
