Using a Roku tv.

Using a Roku tv.

Can i use a Roku tv for viewing basic Comcast cable programming? Like a regular tv? Not interested in streaming, games, etc.

Re: Using a Roku tv.

All Comcast cable programming is encrypted. You would need a cable box or DTA. Most video service includes at least 1 box.

 

There is a Roku App in development. But, it may have it's own restrictions compared to a full box, and you would need Comcast Internet service for it to be practical (not sure if it will work with another ISP at all.)
