During a segment on the Early Show today
Julie Chen asked me what happens when the Roku digital video player
runs out of space. I responded by saying you need to cycle the content through but that's not entirely accurate. The Roku doesn't have a hard drive so it's purely streamed two minutes at a time. You choose your movie or TV show from Netflix or Amazon.com and within 10-15 seconds (depending on your internet connection) it starts playing. I hope this clarifies the capabilities of the device for everyone.
