4 Reasons I Love My Roku 
I have been thinking about writing this post for a while now; so now that more people are asking about the benefits of a Roku over other ways to get television into their home, I thought this would be a great time to do so.

Here are 4 reasons that I love my Roku:

  1. It is much cheaper than cable or satellite TV.
      I cannot believe the expense of cable and satellite TV! We were able to buy our Roku for a small price. We also have a subscription to Netflix which is $21.88 per month. We are able to watch Netflix on our television screen through the Roku box. The rest of the channels we use are free. Roku has a great selection of free channels as well as subscription channels and they add new channels all the time.

     2. It is a great way to spend family time.  
    We use our Roku to watch old television shows such as The Andy Griffith Show and Leave it to Beaver. We also enjoy spending time together on Friday nights watching movies that we rent from some of the other channels that are available on Roku. It's great to be able to rent movies straight from our television without leaving the comfort of our cozy couch.
3. It has wonderful Christian content.
We love to watch GBN, The Gospel Broadcasting Network. It contains wonderful devotionals and fun children's programs. I am also glad to be able to watch Live Stream on my Roku.  Through Live Stream, I get to have an enjoyable Bible Study with a wonderful group of women.  Many churches also stream their worship services through Live Stream. 

    4. It has educational channels.
    Since we homeschool our children, the educational channels we get from our Roku are very beneficial in supplementing our curriculum. They even have pre-school learning channels.

      Bonus- Free exercise channels! 
     There is a large variety of  free exercise channels on the Roku. You can choose from pilates, yoga, belly dancing, maternity, weight lifting, martial arts, and more. Whatever your exercise needs are, there is a fun exercise program for you. 
     The Roku has been a great benefit to our entire family. I encourage you to get one for yourself. 


  1. I have never heard of this actually, but I am going to check it out. Great Review

  2. What are the FREE EXERCISE channels? How do I find them? I haven't found ANY that were free! just a few w/free trials offered.
    I would LOVE to find these!
