How many subscribers have to want something before you will actually make it happen? I don't understand the difference between allowing apple tv and xbox 360 to stream hbo go to your tv, but not Roku or Samsung. It seems oddly prejudicial.

For the people out there still asking why we still want it on a roku when we have a cable box: If you had a roku, then you would understand. You can search all of your applications for movies and tv at the same time. If I am searching for a specific movie, I don't have to search through the cable box and then through netflix and then see if it is on another app, Roku will give me all of my options at once, paid or free. Also when we go away and cannot bring the cable box with us, we can hook the roku up anywhere and still have stuff for the kids to watch in the room without having to pay premium hotel prices for movies or games between outings. I don't understand why Comcast would allow use of hbo go with apple tv or xbox 360, but not with Roku. That seems a little stupid seeing as Roku is more versalitle and user friendly than either of those platforms. Sometimes convenience is everything. Have you ever watched a movie on tv with commercials even though you own the DVD and it is sitting 10 feet in front of you? I use my roku more than the cable box even though there isnt always the same quality of material and I pay for the cable service. I use it more because it is simpler to navigate. Maybe you are not as lazy as I am, but after a long day if I get the chance to sit in front of a television for 30 mins or an hour, I want simple.
