For $35 this is awesome. Plays Netflix youtube etc perfectly in 1080p. If you dont need kodi this baby is perfect. I've got a mix box and a nvidea shield box for games and kodi but they were $200 plus. This does everything the same minus kodi. Comes loaded with the popular channels. You can add more. You do need a credit card to create your account but nothing is charged unless you buy something from the roku store.
