I thought I would share my experience, in my first real foray into Video Download Services, via the Roku Box.

The Roku Box is an Internet Streamer Set Top Box for you Television.

I have setup...

Netflix Watch Instantly (paid subscriber)
Amazon on Demand
Pod Hub
MHz Networks
TuneIn Radio
Roku Newscaster
Youtube
Vimeo
KoldCast
Crackle
Kidlet
RevisionTV

Hulu Plus (not paid but with a few free videos to try)
MediaFly (loaded then dropped from menu)
ArchiveTV (loade then dropped from menu)


I have also added PlayOn service which transcodes video using my LapTop which is connected via Ethernet to my Buffalo WHR HP G54 Wireless G router. The Roku is hooked up via Wireless G. Roku has limited codec support, so the PlayOn service opens up available content on the internet to the Roku.

On PlayOn

Hulu
CBS
Comedy Central
ESPN.com
ESPN3
TBS
Spike TV
PBS
CNN
Nick
Fox News
PBS Kids
TV.com
YouTube
MTV
BET

which is the default Playon Menu with no added Plugins, Scripts, etc.
