One delighted user left a glowing five-star review for the Roku Express, writing: ‘The Roku boxes are great and come at an extremely good price. They’re so easy to install and we can even use our mobile phones as remote controls.
‘We cut off expensive services like Sky and use our four Roku boxes in the livingroom, kitchen and two bedrooms. We subscribe to Netflix and Amazon Prime Video and can get all the other usual channels like Ch4, My5, ITV, etc.’
Another agreed, adding: ‘Great way of streaming, watching box sets and catch-up as well as live TV. Incredibly easy to set up.
‘Amazing value – for just one payment of £25 we can access virtually all the TV channels and watch programmes when we want. Can’t imagine why people pay monthly for services like Sky.’
A third penned: ‘I bought this exclusively so we could have very quick remote control access to watch all the app based subscriptions that we have and thereby upgrading our now outdated smart TV.
‘The Roku app store has 950 different channels from around the world. Many are free, great way to access international and other language items.’
