Borrow a Roku!
What is Roku? Roku is a media streaming device that plugs into the HDMI port on your TV turning your tv into a “smart TV.” Roku will allow you to stream popular television shows and movies through the library’s Netflix subscription and Vudu account, as well as provide access to other free channels, such as TED, PBS, PBS KIDS, Crackle, Youtube, and more.
To use the Roku you must have Wi-Fi and have a HDMI input on your television. The Roku kit will provide you with the rest. Just plug the Roku to your TV, connect it to your Wi-Fi and start watching!
