Conclusion: The Roku 2 XS puts a ton of online content, including Angry Birds, at your fingertips and on your television affordably, but it doesn't seem as useful as it did years ago, before many Blu-ray players and HDTVs offered the same services and more.
Pros: Multiple streaming media services. Easy to set up and use. Angry Birds plays great.
Cons: HDTVs, game consoles, and Blu-ray players offer Netflix, eliminating the need for a separate, single-purpose set-top box. Few local media sharing features. Adding channels requires a credit card.
