ROKU2 For Internet TV

First thing to understand is internet TV is user driven, the channel concept is dramatically changed from what cable TV calls "channels".

I think ROKU-2 is the best so far of any internet tv boxes. I have the high end ROKU2-XS $99 and includes the best 1080P decoder and built in WiFi.

You will need a dual channel cable modem, Motorola 6120, and a high end dual band router, about $150.

You can use lesser quality equipment, but your picture quality will vary.

Here is a sample of what is currently on ROKU

It's basically it's all "on-demand", you have to subscribe to most channels and the price per depends. Some channels are free, so just look around.

Here is a short video that shows how to set up ROKU for GBTV.

Rememer, you subscibe first with your laptop, then connect to ROKU.
