Hands on with Roku 3

I was pleasantly surprised today when my Roku 3 showed up in the mail. I guess one of the small pleasures that I got immediately from ordering my Roku directly from the manufacturer was the fact that they didn’t mess with me on shipping. I actually ordered to Roku‘s and received both of them in …
