I did not want to have vpn enabled on router but instead on its separated own device.
So to those who want to have american channels in Canada with new Roku 3, here is how it works for me.
Enter TP link router which what you need: http://www.tp-link.com/lk/products/d...odel=TL-MR3020
You can buy one off ncix site : http://www.ncix.com/detail/tp-link-t...s-39-68296.htm
This TPLink router comes with handy option but I only use it to act like a wireless card with DNS proxy configuration in WISP mode.
Once done, you just simply hook the ethernet cable from the Roku 3 to the TP link router.
Before connect to roku 3, you can simply disconnect all wireless and plug the ethernet to your pc/laptop. Afterwards, you can check to see if the IP has changed to one from the states: http://whatismyipaddress.com/
The last steps is to follow the below link to setup the roku for american channels.
There you go!

Current 2 and 3s' are supposed to be getting the updated software as well. Because we won't have a new remote however, we will have to use the Plex App to use the new functionality.
It would be nice if they would expose the DNS settings in the UI so they could be changed. As it is the last round of updates I had to static route Google DNS (built-in to Roku) to nothing so that unblock-us would work.

That by a country mile
Personally, I like to have both options available.

Does anyone know if you can change the DNS manually to these new boxes? I know the previous boxes did not have hat option.
This is the only reason I went to Apple TV so I can change the DNS without changing it in the router.

Plex is as close as you'll get on this platform.

Seems that they will be available April 12/13 at Canadian retailers.
It would be easy for me to pick up a US one however besides being cheaper in Canada (with the current exchange rate), I like the direct app remote buttons way better on the Canadian model.

New Roku 2 and 3
Upgraded Roku's 2 & 3 announced today. Nice to see the ethernet jack has returned to the Roku 2.
I think I'll be picking up the new Roku 2 as I could do with another at home.
New models are on the shelf at stores here in the U.S. But with the exchange rate they're cheaper back in Canada. However doesn't look like they're available quite yet up North.
