  1. This is already available for order on Amazon for $35 and includes a 3 month subscription to Netflix.
  2. It's USB... I can plug it into my Roku box!
  3. I bought one, but I sure hope there's an easy way to stream stuff the LAN instead just the cloud.
  4. I've watched the demo during the presentation and I have to admit it works pretty nice!
  5. ahh yes! i thought it streams it from the device, but since it streams from the internet, it makes it a WHOLE lot better!
  6. however, if you do want to connect from your pc and have like a dual display, this makes it impossible =[
  7. As far as I can tell, if you have a smart TV then you don't need this device; you can just use your mobile device to tell your TV to play a video from the Internet without it going via the mobile device.
  8. @ IndignantSkeptic,
    @otacon

    You guys need to watch the presentation. The difference is not only that you don't need to stream the content through the external mobile device, you can also sync and switch streaming control between different devices using different platforms, on-the-fly.

    Or just run an HDMI cable from your PC to your HDTV.. this device his useless. .

    Of course. It's useless because it's made by Google. If it were made by your favorite fruit it would have been magical and revolutionary.

    Or just run an HDMI cable from your PC to your HDTV.. this device his useless. We run the Roku Streaming Stick on our LED which does 100x more than that thing.


    yeah, lemme just run that HDMI cable through 6 walls and a floor /s
  11. So can I do this with HBOGo or ShowtimeAnytime if I launch these in my browser and throw it at my television?

    My Samsung "SMART" TV doesn't have all the television apps.
