I don't think this does me more good - I'd rather take a magazine-style subscription and just get each new episode to download as they come out, but I can see how it would be great for people who haven't bought everything.

They are accepting beta testers now, by the way. Unfortunately, ROKU isn't a thing here. Unless it comes out on Apple TV, it's not a thing I could use even if I wanted to.

What's a Roku? Can I get it on my Xbox? Holy cow, when did I get old? This it's an old person question, isn't it?

Yes it is.

I don't know the answer because I am also an old person.

ROKU is a streaming box/stick.



You can download "channels" to it and stream stuff. (Netflix, Hulu etc)

I love my Roku(s).  In addition to the 'premium' stuff (Netflix, Hulu, Shudder, and so on), it also has some good free channels (including Pluto TV and the Shout Factory channel).  Best of all, it's just a hardware purchase -- get a Roku box for between $50-$120, depending on what generation you opt for (I have a couple of the $50 Roku 1s, and am happy with them), and you don't pay anything monthly to Roku itself for the service.  I also found it pretty easy to set up.

Going through the comments on the reddit page, I see torgospizza is answering a lot of questions on Rifftrax Prime.  It looks like it will be available through Roku (among other services), and it looks like streaming titles you already own and have in your library will be streamable through it, but it's not clear on if there's an option for just doing that without also paying the subscription.

 i dont have the  Broadband  to use a roku  so this just a ghost to me.
Cervantes smiled Spain's chivalry away;
A single laugh demolished the right arm
Of his own country; — seldom since that day
Has Spain had heroes.

where did all the happy endings go?, where could all the good times be.

Have Roku boxes hooked up to all 3 of my TVs. The one in the kitchen is the newest and cheapest- Roku Light I think it was called-about 2 months old and cost $25. It's a bit slower to navigate than the more expensive boxes and I think the output is limited to 720p, but for a small kitchen TV anything more is overkill. Highly recommend Roku boxes and my weekend mornings almost all start with making breakfast while watching Pluto TV.

Back to the topic of Rifftrax Prime though...accessing releases I already own via my Roku interests me a bit, but would have to have details on the "member exclusive content" before I'd commit. If it's all of the past and maybe a new Bacon Cam then I'm in.
