Just to ask a stupid question, what's the obvious alternatives to this with its USB port for watching your own e.g. mp4 files? Running a server with Plex? (But that seems for the tech-savvy only...). Screen mirroring with Chromecast etc.? Some other way? Thanks.



Plex is actually really easy to set up, and makes accessing your media a dream. I regret not discovering it years earlier.
Trust me, it's the best option and much better than mirroring or Chromecast. Plus once it's set up it's very user-friendly for your family too. Basically it turns all your media files into your own personal Netflix.
You don;t need to be tech-savvy, and there's lots of how-to videos on YouTube. Best of all Plex is completely free. (There is a paid service available, but you really don't need it).

Does anyone know if you can put Virgin TV Go on this device?


No you can't.

Interesting. Little stated difference between the express and the 2. Express has private listening via the app, but no screen mirroring. The 2 has extra ports.

I don't watch much HD content, my plex is all SD to enable external streaming, and I don't notice that much difference between the 2 devices. I do love the remote headphones on the 3 though, so that player sits in my bedroom. I believe this may now be possible on the express through the phone app though?


I also have a 3 and love it. The remote headphones are great but if your WiFi 2.4GHz bands are congested, there is a lot of faffing to get rid of the dropouts. Also, I have never managed to get headphones to work with the remote app at all on the Roku 3.

I suspected that the express would be pretty much as good as the Roku 2. Makes the 2 look very expensive.

Anybody know how to watch ultraviolet films on roku devices since flixster …Anybody know how to watch ultraviolet films on roku devices since flixster and CinemaNow stopped? Thanks




Hi, 'SS41'...


Unfortunately, there's no longer any Roku channels which support UltraViolet film playback in the UK. At one time, UK Roku users had multiple options for streaming their UltraViolet library but, one-by-one, these have all dropped away. In addition to 'Flixster' and "CinemaNow', which you mentioned, there was 'Sainsburys Entertainment' (who ended their services on 20th September 2016) as well as an Roku channel for 'Wuaki TV UK' - since rebranded to 'Rakuten TV UK - who ended the UltraViolet aspect of their service as of 1st March 2017. At that point, UK Roku users were out of options for streaming UV content!

In my opinion, there were too many flaws surrounding how the whole UltraViolet service was set-up to begin with. One of the main bugbears for a lot of users is how the availability of any given film was down to the individual retailer... so even if your UV code was redeemable on 'Flixtser' (for example) there was no guarantee that it would have been redeemable on ' CinemaNow', or 'Wuaki TV UK', or 'Sainsburys Entertainment' (and vice versa). Under the circumstances, it's not surprising that UV support has diminished to all but two options in the UK: namely, Kaleidescape [kaleidescape.com], or; Sony Pictures [ultraviolet.sonypictures.com] and, even then, I think the latter is restricted to just Sony Pictures content - plus, neither one can be streamed on Roku devices!

There's since been a (slight) glimmer of hope with the introduction of "Movies Anywhere" in the United States, which aggregates content from Vudu / Google Play / iTunes / Amazon Video letting you browse and watch your collection of eligible Disney, 20th Century Fox, Sony Pictures, Universal, and Warner Bros movies (along with bonus material and exclusive videos) across multiple devices. They already have a Roku channel developed, which has been released (and is already working) on Roku devices in the USA, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed that the 'Movies Anywhere' service (together with their Roku app) gets extended to the UK and (if so) makes a better job of things than UV did with their attempt.


However, for the time being, there is no Roku channel for 'UltraViolet' playback... so you may have to look to another device if you wish to use their service in the UK (TIP: several people have reportedly used Nvidia Shield with varying degrees of success for this purpose). Alternatively, you could consider making your own digital copy (in a Roku-compatible format) and then watching via the 'Roku Media Player' channel, or 'Plex', etc, etc. but those are pretty much your only options right now.

Hi, 'milady'...There's a lot to consider between the three devices you …Hi, 'milady'...There's a lot to consider between the three devices you have mentioned. So, it really comes down to your own personal wants and needs for a streaming device. If I were to choose the device shown in this deal, i.e. Roku 2 (Model 4205EU), over the newer 'Roku Express' and/or 'Roku Streaming Stick+' models... it would be purely on account of it having an ethernet port (for a wired network connection, as opposed to a wireless one) and a USB port (for playing media stored on an external drive and/or USB stick) since, in every other way, the two newer devices are just as good but cheaper (Roku Express) or better and come with more features albeit at a higher price (Roku Streaming Stick+).If you don't want (or need) 4K, but have a decent WiFi signal wherever you plan to use it, the HD-only Roku Express is a great streamer. I have one, which I use on a display close to my router (i.e. where there is a very strong WiFi signal) and have experienced no lack of speed when navigating the menus, or "drop outs" in my wireless signal, during the four months that I have owned it. I can highly recommend this to anyone with a decent wireless setup who is happy with HD-only (at best) and doesn't want a 4K-capable device. On the other hand, even if you think you *might* upgrade your television to a 4K model in future, then the 'Roku Streaming Stick+' would be the better choice for you. Yes, it will cost you more initially, but it's likely to be supported for a longer period of time than the 'Roku 2' - which will be three year old technology very soon - and, in my experience, buying the best (preferably *the* best) model you can afford will pay-off in the long run. To put it into perspective, my original 'Roku LT' from 2012 is struggling to run some of the apps now... mainly because the apps are constantly being updated, whereas the hardware remains the same... and even little tweaks in the firmware (i.e. the software that runs the hardware) cannot keep an old device going forever. Likewise, some of the other slightly older models (Roku 2 XS, Roku 1, etc.) are no longer as fast as they were initially. Only my 'Roku 3' and 'Roku2' (like the one listed here) are still doing okay with the current Roku OS and set of apps and that is largely because they were either the top-of-the-line (Roku 3) or the latest device, prior to the release of the Roku Express / Roku Streaming Stick+ models (Roku 2), but I'm not expecting them to be able to cope with the app updates indefinitely.Despite my personal preference for wired connections when streaming, on account of their being far more stable / reliable, if you asked me to pick just one of the three today, it would have to be the 'Roku Streaming Stick+'... but, for the reasons previously explained, if you feel that the 'Roku 2' or 'Roku Express' would suffice for your needs, I would happily recommend either one!



Thanks, this was really, really helpful . I hadn't considered the USB port issue, but I can see how that could be really useful for a lot of people. My wifi is super strong so I'm probably going to go for the 4K stick on that basis, but it's been really useful to finally understand the options. Thanks again!

Which is the best place to download the HAL APK file from?, or ... thanx. :-)
Ive been using ip vanish and it cuts my download speeds massively. 80mbps on wifi. Enable ip vanish and it goes down to 16mbps an thats if im lucky
What are the speeds and do they keep any logs?
I think this is a good deal, however, there is a comment, that "lifetime" is only for the lifetime of the software approx 5 years.

I have Nordvpn, cost $99 for 3 years. I have it on a NAS, a pc, & 3 kodi devices.

I can't understand how/why everywhere is still selling these anyway.

Roku made the Roku 3 after this, yet almost nowhere seemed to stock it. They have also since made a handful of others, but again try finding them here.

Some kept the Roku 3 for a limited time but yet almost always had (and still have) a surplus of the Roku 2 at hand. Anyone know the issue with the lack of Roku 3's?
Has anyone found these in any stores or was it store specific?
Good find. it's a good box for your 2nd TV without 4K :-) . I mean, who can afford TWO 4K TVs?
I prefer the IR remote here to the one for the stick too, which seems to be intermittent
Lucky you

Got to disagree about the stick being slow, I bought one in January it is brilliant. It's the only stick with Netflix, prime and now TV, it can be a bit slow but it cost me £20, so no complaints. £7 is a bargain.

Roku floated on new York stock exchange a few weeks ago so I accept it to be around for a long time and releasing the latest versions of their boxes here.

I just wish there was a replacement uv app for the cinema now app that ended a few weeks ago.

Nope, thankfully Plex is crappy Kodi plugin free.


The two are miles apart. Plex is polished, awesomeness. Kodi is broken-link infested, clunkyness.
Heat added, bargain.
Good find.

Hmm interesting. It definitely would make Netflix more palatable but I would want 4k HDR streaming (I'm picky I know LoL). So if I'm not going to get that, then for the occasional Netflix things I watch it still may not be worth it. I think I am little spoiled being an Amazon prime customer and having "other" ways to get the occasional Netflix item. In fact if their pricing was better I would probably have already subscribed to them. Excellent suggestion though that I will definitely keep in mind, Roku or no Roku.

I'm not sure I would play Hulu and HBO very often if at all to be honest. There are other ways of acquiring content
