View Full Version : Need Advice

My parents are about to cancel their cable and go with streaming netflix and such. I stream all of my stuff right on my xbox so I haven't used the apple tv interface nor the Roku interface. These are the two options they are gonna look at in terms of getting netflix streaming. Anybody have any opinions as to which i should have them get? They don't have a mac or anything in the house, or have any itunes purchases to stream to the TV. Im wondering which UI will be easier and less confusing for them to use. Any help or recommendations would be great!

Have you also taken a look at MRoogle (http://mroogle.edesignuk.com/), since that question may have been asked several times? Results: "roku vs apple tv".
