Anyone who understands the impact of the internet can see the impending wave of video streaming via the web to living rooms everywhere, but how far are we away? Previously, Roku got the ball rolling with its original “Netflix Player,” which streamed WatchItNow from Netflix to any TV. Now, the company has unveiled two new players, one, the HD-XR, with a better WiFi connection, and the other, the SD, only plays back standard definition video. Are these the first shots off the bow of the cable company? We ask Joel Evans from Geek.com, and Clayton Morris of Fox News. Distributed by Tubemogul.
