Edward R Murrow

Whoa, we need accuracy in journalism. This is *NOT* a player from Netflix as you're implying. This is a product designed and manufactured by Roku that interfaces with Netflix. This same Roku product will have interfaces to other media providers, other than Netflix.

Murrow, the device is manufactured by Roku but when it comes time to update the firmware does the device connect with a Neflix server or Roku? Honestly, I couldn't tell what URL the device called to when it did the initial setup. Indeed, whoever controls the firmware is the true master of the device.

Edward,

You're right. After all of the correct mentions, I updated the headline and story.

BTW, Netflix is a part-owner of Roku, so I was partially right. ;-)

It's called the Roku Netflix Player. I don't see it referred to as otherwise here or in the CNET article. what's up your butt?

Well Tdischino, it's not called Roku Netflix Player either. Its technical name is Netflix Player by Roku.
Toodles!

You think a toaster is bad, try taking apart and reassembling a manual typewriter. I'll never do that again.

Unsolder and take all the chips off and put them back on -- then I'll be impressed; if it works...
