I have 2 Vizio TV's; one in the LR, which is 38" and in the BR which is 24". I don't know which Roku to purchase for both of them. I currently have Frontier cable but am looking to cut the cord. I will keep my Frontier internet.

A: Depends on how old your TVs are

What model TVs do you have an how old are they? The Roku Express+ is better for older TVs because it works with both HDMI and composite cable.

There's no need to get a Roku Premiere model because the 4K HD streaming is really for enormous screens only, and they are more expensive. So I would recommend the Roku Streaming Stick 3600R if you have newer TVs.

We have HD TV's but not smart TV's. All have HDMI ports. Don't quite know difference between Roku Express and Roku 3600R. I don't mind paying difference. How do I hook up 3600R? Then do I have to set up a Roku account? Why if free.

Hi, just want to replace my Slingbox 500 because it won't support the output from my new Yamaha receiver and DirecTV 4K Genie. Will it work as just a drop-in (for now)?
