Netgear Roku XD Player

Over 25,000 people are now watching Geek News Central on the Roku, and I was very excited to see that Roku has apparently made a distribution deal with Netgear. The evidence is this image that has surfaced at the FCC hat tip to for the source on this.

Up to this point the only way you could purchase a Roku was to do so online. You could not stroll into Best Buy and pick one up, now with Netgear’s International distribution chain that will not be the case for much longer. This equals more units in consumers homes, and more chances that we will pick up a new audience member.  If you do not think I am not excited about this space then you have not been listening to my show and or watching what we have been doing in this space at RawVoice.

So an early congratulations to the team at Roku for doing this deal, and we look forward to all the viewers when nation wide distribution of this new Roku box gets underway.
