Roku

AtheistTV is available streaming online or on your TV with a Roku. On Roku, you'll have access to the 24/7 AtheistTV stream as well as video on demand.

So what is a Roku?

Roku is an internet enabled set-top box that connects to a wide range of "channels" via the Roku network. You buy your Roku box and that's it! There are no recurring fees for using a Roku; you subscribe to the channels you want (and most of them are free). You plug in your Roku, connect it to your TV, join your WiFi network, and you're ready to go. The whole process takes 5 minutes or less.

What can I watch on Roku?

There are hundreds of free channels (like AtheistTV) as well as apps that allow you to access Netflix, Hulu Plus, Amazon Instant Video, Redbox, and others. If you also have a cable subscription, you can watch on-demand programming from HBOGo, WatchESPN, A&E, and many more channels. With the Roku Streaming Stick or Roku 3, you can also stream YouTube and Netflix videos right to your TV from your smartphone.

How much does Roku cost?

That depends on what kind of Roku you want. There are (currently) 4 options that range in price from $49.99 to $99.99. The least expensive Roku, the Streaming Stick, works with any TV with an HDMI connection and plugs directly into your TV. All Rokus come with remote controls (or can be controlled from your smartphone using the Roku app). At the top end is the Roku 3 box. With WiFi, Ethernet, USB, and microSD support, as well as a motion control remote for games like Angry Birds Space, it offers a range of entertainment options. More information is available on the Roku site.
