roku
do seem to have all the +++ when it comes to streaming.
Hardware and reputability anyway from what ive read.

However i'm not sure if its very american in its selection of channels to offer (Ive not used one).

You may be presently surprised by the NowTV boxes.

Which ever road you go down be aware your going to need "Unlimited" broadband as it can eat easy +100 GB per month.

Just put one of these in the kitchen. 20 from Argos with 3 months entertainment pass. Good deals to be had for passes on ebay. Even you just get the box on it's own with no pass it's well worth it for a tenner. 4OD, iPlayer, 5 on demand, itvplayer and youtube are on there so loads of online content. You can also cast youtube to it from mobile devices.
Not HD though and you cant pause live channels.
If you have a media server with plex on you can put plex on the box and stream stuff from the server apparently

While we're talking about these cheap boxes, something to consider if you're looking at the Google Chromecast:

You'll need to enter card details into your NowTV account to activate it. If you decide to try one of the free trial passes you'll need to cancel the automatic renewal before the month is up. I think you can cancel it right after activating and still get the free month.
