I have bought two Roku devices since cutting cable and I don't miss cable one bit! This works so much better than the chromecast at streaming and has such an easy interface. There are a lot of great apps for TV, movies and music. I use Netflix, Hulu plus, Tablo, Sling App, and PBS kids. Best investment. If you are thinking about cutting cable, this is a must! My only complaint about the Roku 2 compared to the Roku 3 is the remote. It doesn't react as well on the Roku 2. I could have the remote pointed directly at the Roku 2 from a few feet away and it doesn't register. I've never had this issue with the Roku 3.
