i have a roku one, and love it.... dont know the difference in those, but probably not alot. i have read informaton between the roku one and the roku two, and from what i read they are basically the same, one just says one and the other just says two. alot of free movies, shows. you also have the option to get sling tv and others, and there are trials on some, ive had hbo now,showtime, and a few others on a 30 day trial,if you want to keep them just pay what the want which isnt much, or cancel on the trial date. as well as others. very good buy. youll really love it no matter which one you decide on.

i know several people back here went with roku for that same purpose of cancelling their cable.with roku you can pick and choose your channels, with cable they stick you without about half the channels you dont want.

it is legal we watch our local news every night there are all kinds of channels you can subscribe to and each one has wide variety of shows to watch. we got tired of paying close to $60.00 a month many of the channels i had was in triplicate . i think on hulu we found old westerns dating back to the 1930--50 . we bought the $69.00 device . in the long run it will save us money
