Streaming Player

A relatively little-known TV set box is outselling its highly publicized rivals. The Roku XD Streaming Player is a handy little application that lets you stream HD versions of Netflix, Hulu Plus and dozens more Internet video channels right on your TV. But before you buy, you should be aware Roku does not support Netflix closed captions. You may be able to see closed captions on a few Netflix movies and shows when you watch them on the computer. An unofficial list of streaming Netflix videos with subtitles is here. How to get captioning on Hulu videos through Roku is here.
