The Roku 2 XS - BIG ENTERTAINMENT In An Impressively Small Package! +Giveaway

Streaming great television, movies, and music content to your television just got better! Roku, the pioneers of streaming, have now added games to the mix! They're starting everyone off with the uber popular Angry Birds game (available for television streaming exclusively at this time in their Roku 2 XS.) Angry Birds is among a few other popular titles available now on the Roku 2 XS, and the library of available games (much like the expanse of available channels) is growing daily!

 At first glance, you'll be more than impressed with the incredible entertainment options offered in this  super small device (the Roku 2 XS measures in just a bit bigger than a credit card!) The updated motion enabled remote allows users to easily navigate both the menu and games with ease.  Roku has left no page unturned with this new streaming device; they include everything you need to get started right in the box! You'll be streaming great content within a matter of minutes.  The setup process couldn't have been made any easier either.  Really, even the technologically challenged can set this device up quickly!

Check out our video review below. A look at the Roku 2 XS from un-boxing through setup, and some of the great entertainment options currently available on Roku.
