We have had the Roku device (premier+) since that model came out last fall.
The new Hulu Live service does not work with the Roku. That is being worked on, as I understand when I called Hulu CS.
We just signed up for the 30 day free trial from Google's tv.youtube. It is not compatible with Roku at all.
The Sony/Vue is compatible with Roku. I will try their seven day trial next month.
Both of these services have all the local network channels channels.
The Google service does NOT have CNN. It does seem to have unlimited storage in time and and maybe, quantity.
The Sony service is limited to 28 days of storage. It does have TCM which we would watch at times.
I didn't really look into Sling when I quickly learned they did not have CBS.
Our situation is somewhat unique. We "commute" between two homes into different parts of the country. In one, we get virtually everything Comcast has including HBO and Showtime included in our HOA dues. What I am looking to do is cut the Comcast service in our other home.
We can use the Roku to access services like CNNgo, HBOgo etc.
Our ideal service would be controllable via handheld remote, have a DVR type capability (we never watch anything live) and, of course, have the channels we watch.
