How Does Roku Work?

Every Roku model is compatible with almost any TV because you have the option to connect via RCA cable or HDMI cable. The cables come packaged with the Roku, so there’s no need to go to an electronics store to buy any more additional cables.

Roku can also connect to the internet via a wired (Ethernet) or wireless (Wi-Fi) connection. You will need a wired or wireless router if you are not going to connect the Roku directly to your cable or DSL modem. A connection speed of 1.2 Mbps (such as regular cable or DSL internet service) is required to stream video at an acceptable quality. However, a 5 Mbps is ideal for watching 1080p video.

Once the Roku is connected to power, a TV, and the internet, you can enjoy watching high quality streaming video instantly! Roku is renowned for its simplicity; you can literally set it up and watch video in a matter of minutes.
