We have not unpacked our Roku streaming stick as of yet, but I am thrilled to finally have one, it is going to make our lives so much easier, check out their five tips (and my surprise bonus tip) to have you streaming like a pro this Summer:
1) Use your voice to search for content quicker and easier. Wow, that is fantastic!
2) Customize your home screen for easy access to your favorite content. In this house that’s my teenager’s job!
3) Learn where to find free content: there’s nothing better than a movie night, especially when it doesn’t break the bank. The Roku Channel is a channel that’s specifically dedicated to helping you find top films, TV and even live programming for FREE. If you’re STILL looking for something free to watch, Roku search displays results in order of price — with lowest price first. Ironically that is what I set all my shopping search engines to as well, so that is a huge time saver for this thrifty guy!
4) Stream in peace with private listening: private listening is a feature that allows you to plug in headphones into a Roku remote or mobile phone (with the Roku mobile app) to mute the sound on your TV. My dad does this with his TV, but we have never had that technology here, this is awesome!
5) Watch TV your way! Whether you’re a cord-cutter or have a cable subscription, Roku has ways for you to get the most your entertainment. My favorite is that I can access my movies anywhere account and watch the digital movies and shows that I have purchased form the convenience of my own home, on a big TV, rather than being stuck watching these shows on my tablet.
My number 6 tip is that the Roku stick is perfect for the traveling individual, or family. Stick the Roku stick into the HDMI port in your hotel’s TV and control voila, you have just increased your choices for added viewing! And if the kids are there, then they can enjoy a greater variety of their shows while the parents are enjoying some down time! I would never leave home without this!
