Does anyone know if using a Roku in the DR is feasible?

I guess it would depend a lot on the Wi-Fi connection in your room. I am not sure that it would be so strong to stream from Roku or Chromecast … maybe only to read stuff online and send email.

Pretty well have to agree.

  1. wifi is generally pretty weak
  2. wifi is generally pretty expensive
  3. AFAIK, roku checks your IP address and blocks things when it doesn’t see a USA IP address

edit: I found this on the Roku site


Roku provides the simplest way to stream entertainment to your TV. On your terms. With more channels than any other streaming player.
