Last week, I picked up a couple of Rokus at Walmart.com for $20 each. I thought I got a good deal on it as it was relatively close to Amazon’s Prime Day. When Amazon has a sale, it seems like everyone else has to have a similar sale.
No, I don’t intend to get every streaming service under the sun. I’m starting with Paramount Plus, maybe getting Peacock later. Roku offers a lot for free on their channel – and since I’m more or less an old school TV guy, it fits my needs.
Netflix has a lot out there, and I’ve used them in the past including a stretch this year. I’m more interested with what I’m familiar with and not something I don’t know of that I could get addicted to.
Yes, I do think you can get addicted to streaming, just as you can with computers, just as you can with booze and weed. It’s always a battle of will power no matter where you go – if you have no will, you have no power.
Yes, I’ve learned that the hard way.
