There is a one time fee to purchase the Roku, but it pays itself off quickly. The price of Roku players rangers in between $49.99-$79.99. After this one time fee, we just have a monthly payment of $16.98 that is spend on subscriptions to Netflix and Hulu.
What a deal!
Not only is this a cheap way to pay for entertainment, but it is convenient too. The best part is that we get to set the schedule for when we watch television shows, which is incredibly useful for a graduate student like me. I can subscribe to several shows on Hulu and watch them whenever I want (i.e. study breaks,a fun date night in, or lazy Saturday mornings).
Hulu is useful for someone who wants to watch television shows that are currently playing on the major networks like ABC, Fox, etc… You just subscribe to the show, and the new episodes will show up in your queue each week. Backlogged episodes are available too, even for great classics like "The Cosby Show," which is a favorite of ours.
So, thank you Netflix for introducing me to & awakening my addiction to shows like: “How I Met Your Mother,” “Parenthood,” “Parks & Recreation,” & “Downton Abbey” (just to name a few). I’m sure that Hulu is grateful to you for introducing me to these shows so that I will continue to stream them via their service.
In conclusion, yes, we’re saving money. But, oh my goodness, Mr. Mister and I have a lot of shows that we watch now.
Are you ready for the grand total?
We watch 15 different tv shows.
