I like the fact that users can install custom applications and channels on the device. I also like the fact that individuals can develop independent content for the device without having to spend an arm and a leg or jump through licensing hoops. What I deeply dislike about the Roku is the fact that one has to supply payment information just to use the device even for free services.
