Enter to Win a FREE ROKU XS + New Roku App Preview

Hi Everyone! I’m really excited to announce the imminent release of the new roku app! It’s been a little over a year since we released the first roku app, and I’ve received a lot of positive feedback, as well as a myriad of bug reports and feature requests.  I’ve done what I can to make this the best app possible. A few new features include:

  • Parental Controls
  • Search Capabilities
  • Access to your DVD and scene stash
  • Image galleries
  • Plus more!

The new improvements are too numerous to list here, but pictures say a thousand words, so check out the screenshots I’ve attached below.


I will begin rolling it out to existing users over the next several days. So stay tuned, and check your roku for the update!


In the meantime, we’ve decided to give away some free rokus! I’ll be giving out ROKU2 XS streaming players to 5 lucky members. This is the top-of-the-line roku with gaming functionality, 1080p video and advanced wifi and ethernet (check out the specs here).


To enter, from VB click on MY ACCOUNT, then in the “Win a roku” section, click “send confirmation”. This will send a confirmation email to your account email address. When you receive it, just click the link in the email and you’re all set! I will announce the winners on May 27.


Below are some “sneak preview” screen grabs from the new roku app:
