Netflix - Currently one of the top rated channels on Roku is Netflix. It's no wonder when you see the large library of commercial free movies and TV shows available on their channel. Netflix is a subscription only channel and one that should be at the top of your list if you want to cut your cable bill. They offer full TV series including some that are exclusively their own which you won't find anywhere else on Cable or Satellite.


Plex - This channel works together with a computer or NAS box that must be on and running while you watch the Plex channel on Roku. Plex charges a single time fee to new Roku users for their channel after a short free trial. Another Free Plex alternative channel is Rarflix. This channel has the same features as Plex. 

One reason Plex is so popular is because of the unsupported app store. This give you access to much more content through the use of 3rd party plugins. Here is a Plex Setup Guide to help download and setup Plex along with the Unsupported App store for your Roku.

To eliminate running a bulky PC for running Plex and to store their media files, many people are choosing to use a NAS box. Our popular NAS Guide will show you more about the top two best rated NAS boxes available today: QNAP vs Synology Best NAS for 2015

Roku 4 Rumors


Roku 4 internet rumors and speculation have been going on for a while. At this point, nothing definite points to a new Roku 4 being released in the near future.

Currently you can  buy a brand new Roku 3 on Amazon for a much lower price. This has some speculating a newer Roku model may be coming soon. We have seen discounted sales on Roku 3 models come and go over the past year or two, so even this does not have us fully convinced a new Roku 4 is on the way.

Our best guess is when we see Apple come out with an updated Apple TV model, we may see a new Roku 4 released soon thereafter.

Even once Roku does release a new Roku 4, the Roku 3 will still continue to work fine with most all the Roku channels currently available now and for quite a long time to come.
