Player 1: Roku Streaming Stick

This streaming stick is portable and easily tucks behind your flat screen TV. You insert this stick into the HDMI port of your TV and once it finds your WiFi, you're good to go. The size of this Roku is the selling point and they have developed a "Hotel and Dorm Connect" which allows you to easily plug the stick anywhere you go.

Player 2: Roku1

The Roku 1 is the right choice if you want to turn your old HD television into a Smart TV. It comes standard with composite cables just in case your TV doesn't have HDMI, but to get the HD experience, you must have an HDMI connection.
