Needs Free Hulu

Describe Yourself: Technophile
Faster wireless connection than my old XP laptop. Easy to set up with my computer and wireless system. Very good platform for Netflix
Conclusion: Roku XD is good for Neflix viewing and as a wireless hub, but it limited in choices for other viewing. It offers Hulu Plus (a paid service), but not Hulu free, and both have commercials, but Hulu free offers access to more current programs. If it had an internet browser, you’d never need cable or satellite.
