Default I got a Roku device

I should have gotten one of these a long time ago. With this I can stream Netflix movies to my TV set. Also, it offers slews of free and pay channels. OTOH, I don't really know what a "slew" is. It just sounds good to say.

And now that I'm into streaming, I also tried streaming Netflix to my computer. This solves a lot of problems when I can't sit up. Helps overcome boredom. And I'm not having any problems with the movie stalling during transmission. This is what a lot of people told me would happen, and why I avoided it before. Oh, well I did have one problem of the visuals getting out of sync with the audio. But turning off HD fixed that.

So far I've only watched two movies and the first season of one TV series. All three had CC.
