Hi all, looking for some feedback. I’m moving on from Direct TV after the game as I’m riding out my Sunday Ticket. I’ve used the Roku stick for travel and the older version of the base unit for home so I’m semi literate. Mostly use it to access Amazon Prime video content, but will be looking to adapt my content from what I have now. My wife and I watch a lot of movies and TV as we lead home based lives really, so we have the highest DTV package. We’ll have to probably sign up for individual HBO, SHOW etc for series that we are into. For sports it’s really just the Lions I’ll need to have, outside of access to the main networks for college games.
So that’s content. As for the hardware, Roku is ok, but very unhappy with the FF/REW capabilities. Frankly it really sucks compared to DTV remote functionality. So I’m all ears as to what types of units are best for that specifically. I know Roku has a newer base unit out there that is supposed to be faster loading, but not sure if it’s still so buggy with the REW/FF. I appreciate any tips you guys can pass along. Thanks!
