Roku - Any difference with Canadian hardware?
I'm planning to get a Roku 2 XS to use with unblock-us.com to set up a US Roku account.
I see that Amazon.ca has these for C$91.98 right now. This is $18 less than LD or WM and only C$2 more than at BB in the US. The Amazon.ca listing specifically says "Canadian Version". Amazon.ca doesn't ordinarily say "Canadian Version" on their listings, causing me to wonder whether there is a difference from the US version.
I read on another site that even with unblock-us and a US Roku account that some US channels might be blocked. The speculation was that the Canadian serial number might somehow limit services.
I would prefer to get this from Amazon.ca in case I have any problems with it. On the other hand, a friend is going to be in the US next week and can bring US hardware back for me.
So does anyone here know whether a "Canadian" Roku with unblock-us and a US Roku account is fully functional?
