Roku is a popular media streaming device that lets you watch free and paid videos on your TV through the Internet. There are dozens of streaming applications available on the Roku channel store. Netflix is one of the applications that come pre-installed in Roku streaming devices. By installing Netflix, you can watch all the latest & popular movies on the larger screens.
