New! ROKU at The Cottage

television set for use with ROKU

Wow! ROKU impresses us as a streaming option for our guests at The Cottage. In the past, guests could log into their own streaming accounts, such as Prime Video, hulu, etc. But it was always a worry that they would forget to log out and it was a little bit complicated to make access easy. We now have added ROKU in “Guest Mode” to our Cottage TV,  This will automatically log out guests at 11 am on their check-out date. And erase any personal information they may have entered. It’s so easy to use, plus has tons of free content, including LIVE free content.

ROKU is a simple device attached to the television. We have set it as the default connection so it launches when the TV is turned on. Generally, the TV will be on when guests arrive, we will have entered their check-out date and selected a music channel to welcome them to The Cottage. But if it’s off, then using the ROKU remote to turn it on and start streaming is as easy as pie. The ROKU remote turns on/off the TV and the soundbar. Unless you decide to use the Blu-ray player, it’s the only remote guests will need to use.

The Cottage still has a small video collection and Blu-ray player. As always, we will include instructions for using it in our Guidebook binder.

While ROKU has been around for quite awhile, it’s new to us and we already think it’s great!
