wmjfoley85 I got a box called a Turbo Beacon that I connected to my router.....It allows me to access my Hulu+ account, and get US Netflix just fine on my Roku ! The device provides a US Wifi Network called TurboBeacon and I pay $10.50 per month.

Dr.Dave Good to know you got HBO working - I don't have any specific info on Roku.

WeirdG BTW, I have a hookup for HBO Go, who subscribes to it with DirecTV.

WeirdG Nope, I mean HBO Go. I actually have it working on my Samsung SmartTV, but I have my router setup using a SmartDNS service. Hulu+, HBO Go, and Pandora work without any issues. Netflix US also sometimes works. It might be up for a week or two and down for a few, since Netflix is still cracking down on VPN/SmartDNS users.

Dr.Dave It's doubtful that you will be able to get HBO outside the U.S. since they cracked down on VPNs over a year ago - see post 31 in this thread. I assume you mean HBO NOW, which is the standalone HBO subscription service. HBO GO is the service you use for online access if you pay for HBO through your U.S. cable TV subscription.

WeirdG I'm looking at buying the Canadian version. Does anyone know if it's possible to access Hulu+, HBO Go, and Pandora if you use a VPN or SmartDNS service with this?

wmjfoley85 Ok thank you !

ExDilbert Compared to previous models, the Roku Premiere and Roku Premiere+ add 4k TV capability. Compared to the Roku Premiere, the Roku Premiere+ adds HDR TV, an ethernet port and an RF remote with headphone jack.

Roku Premiere Plus

Hi all, I currently have a Roku 3, but this weekend I ordered a Roku Premiere Plus from The Source website. It's suppose to have ac wireless capibilities which is the reason I ordered it. To my knowledge it's not even sold in store yet. Anyone try out the new Roku boxes yet? How different is it really besides wifi ac capabilities from the Roku 3?
