A couple of weeks ago Amazon offered a very good price, $20 off, on the Roku HD Player. Since I live on a farm and our house is more than a quarter of a mile off the road, my options are limited. We have DSL but it is relatively slow and occasionally erratic. Recently our service has improved but YouTube videos still stutter. Recently my son figured out that NetFlix works just fine with our DSL connection. So I took the chance and bought the Roku player. I figured that this device is simple enough for my wife. It worked great. I watched two movies without a single stutter. The Roku channels that depend on podcasts or YouTube are still problems but Netflix and the audio channels work great. I am still working on the wife training.
