| The Roku player, that nifty little Linux-based 
| device which streams Netflix, Amazon movies, 
| Revision3 shows, and more, now has an SDK 
| available for programmers to create their own 
| channels:

| content to the TV.



RokuâBreaking the Linux Not Invited Rule

,----[ Quote ]
| Many of you probably are familiar with the Roku media streaming device. In a
| partnership with Netflix, the Roku is one of several officially supported
| devices for streaming the large collection of Netflix's available movies and
| television shows. What makes the Roku interesting is that although Netflix
| doesn't support streaming its DRM-protected movies to Linux users, the Roku
| itself runs Linux.

Roku's Netflix Player: a hands-on review

,----[ Quote ]
| It's small and silent, sports an array of ports on the back but only one tiny
| white LED on the front, and it can help you spend hours of time in front of
| your TV -- and it runs Linux. It's the Netflix Player from embedded device
| specialist Roku, and we got our hands on it for a review of the service and
| the hardware.

| Whether you are a Netflix addict or not, Roku's friendly cooperation with the
| open source community and the promise of an SDK add up to a good environment
| in which to explore video-on-demand. The Netflix Player is a good product
| now; opening it up to additional services will make it better, and working
| with the development community will make it even better still.


Not iPhone: Roku Netflix player software goes open source

| Remember the Roku Netflix set-top box that came out a little while ago? Well

| buzzing about getting its popular open source media center software onto the
| Roku box.


Netflix Player from Roku Uses Linux Tech
