Apple TV vs. Roku vs. Sony BDP-S580 Blu-Ray Player

Sony BDP-S580 UI

Take three very different media streamers head-to-head-to-head and you are bound to find at least one that might meet your needs. The Apple TV, the Roku family of streamers, and the Sony BDP-S580 Blu-Ray Player represent a disparate collection of media streamers I would not normally expect to see pitted against each other, particularly the inclusion of a Blu-Ray player.

Roku Moving in to the UK and Canada

Roku’s looking for some new stomping grounds and they’ve got their eye on Canada and the UK. To be honest, I’m surprised it has taken Roku this long to move into Canada.

Roku Adds Three New Channels, Including Disney


With hundreds of content channels to choose from, the addition of three new channels to the Roku Channel Store wouldn’t normally be big news, but today’s announcement is a doozy, if only for one of the three channels.

The Roku 2 Review by ZNF

This is one of the first reviews I’ve seen of the brand new Roku 2 unit that offers a fairly nice supply of features starting at $60. We reviewed the original Roku XDS previously and liked it.
