    No need for a DVR unless it's live TV and I believe there are ways to set that up but you would have to buy your own equipment. The idea of Roku is that you can stream anything you want when you want it. Kind of like an on demand feature.

    But have really fast Internet otherwise it's not a good idea. And you can purchase what you want seperate like HBO, Showtime, Starz or ESPN....then just drop it after you have seen all you want and go onto something else.

    I am pretty lucky bc I get it all free from sharing a family members code. He works for Verizon and gets everything for me. But for those that dont have that, I believe there are packages you can buy for about $19 a month that comes with ESPN, Disney, TNT and all sorts of other channels. Then just add in the movie channels you want for aroud $9 a month.

    But team up with a friend or family member and just share log in info with everyone.

    I forgot to mention that many programs through Roku are encrypted so you can't record them however I use the Roku1 which is far less powerful but allows you to connect through RCA jacks which can unencrypt the signal so you can run it to your VCR or DVD recorder.

    I'm thinking about doing this and getting a TiVo.

    Ok. I understand it better now. I might look into it further. Thanks for the detailed explanation.
