Get a channel with Riverbender TV on Roku

Internet is used every day for various reasons, mostly with a computer. But why not change the computer and replace it with your TV? No need to re-read the previous sentence, you read it correctly. You can stream over 600 channels from the comfort of your own living room with a device called ‘Roku.’ Roku is a small box that connects to your Wi-Fi signal and streams video content and more through your TV.

With Roku, you can have access to movies and TV shows, even websites including your own, Riverbender TV. You can have the right to use programs like Netflix and Hulu plus with a monthly subscription. Even though some channels may cost money, about 400 channels Roku provides are all free and they are always adding new ones. 

Unilike other cable bills there aren't any annual or monthly payments with Roku. Instead of having extra channels on your TV; ones you never even think about watching, you simply pay for what you watch. You don't have to deal with paying for all those sports channels if you don't watch them. If you watch it, you pay for it and if you don't, then, well, you don't have to pay. It's as simple as that. 

Apple TV is similar to the Roku device, but it isn't cheaper than Roku. Apple TV costs around $100, whereas the earlier models of Roku cost as little as $50. However, Roku is constantly changing. They are always adding more and more channels with brand new content and with that it has more channels than Apple TV. To get channels on your Roku device, all you have to do is add them. If there is a new channel released that you want to add right away, you can go straight to their website, search the channel you want and add it to your Roku. 

Some individuals have gone as far as getting rid of their cable and replacing it with Roku. That way, they have no monthly bill which makes it cheaper than regular TV programing. There are free channels that offer a stream of Nickeldeon and Disney Channel shows, one of which is called NokNok. 

Riverbender TV now has a channel on Roku that streams high school sporting events, community videos, concerts, and all sorts of other stuff.  You can even find graduation ceremonies so family members can comfortably watch them from their TV. You have a chance to be a part of Riverbender TV as well.
