If you are looking for a very affordable gift this holiday season that packs a lot entertainment punch, consider purchasing a Roku Box. The Roku is a compact media streamer that connects to the internet, via your internet router. Roku boxes offer either or both wired and wireless internet connection options. When connected to the internet, Roku boxes can stream a host of movies and TV content from services such as, Netflix, Amazon Instant Video, MLB TV, Hulu Plus, and more. However, one limitation is that unlike a network media player, the Roku box cannot access audio and video files stored on your PC, it does not access content stored on your PC or MAC, or portable USB devices.
