What? I use my Roku every day here in Canada, thank you. Works great, perhaps you should consider offering your opinion as just that, instead of fact.
I also have a firestick, and some devices with google tv.

I have this built-in to my TV so kinda like free, but there are some channels you can add for free TV, News ... not sure if they're just same Google Play Apps ...

Stuff like ROKU Channel, Bloomberg News, Global TV, CNN, etc ... they have a built-in media player, but it doesn't decode DTS and some other audio formats ...

I have Roku stick, Roku tv, fire TV, and fire TV stick.
The fire TV os is way better than the Roku if you want to do more than just watch the basic apps included ie. Chrome

I'd go for the Firestick 4k or the new Chromecast over this. The flexibility is worth a few bucks more.

Ha! Roku is the most solid if you only use the main streaming apps. It just works.

My Fire Stick 4Ks are awful. Drops connections like crazy and has no Play Store options (unless using toolbox). The Chromecast 2020 is a joke too. I was pumped for it, but it's so slow and no user switching.

I have several Roku boxes and sticks. They just work. But mine are all UK models as they enable viewing of UK channels on normal TVs (with the aid of a SmartDNS). Canadian/US ones won't download UK channels - and there's no hack to enable it.

The problem with the Sticks is that the remotes are wifi and don't use IR like the boxes do. It means its difficult to combine remotes and the wifi remote sensitivity is poor.

FireTV is loaded with Banner ad's which sucks balls. I had FireTV's in my home (before they launched in Canada) they were great. As soon as the ad's arrived I jumped ship. I mostly use the Shield TV, but the Roku is a great streaming player.

Unfortunately I haven't' seen Roku stocked at any Costco locations in the BC Lower Mainland
