My loyal readers have probably heard more than they want about my love of the Jayhawks. Most of their basketball games are on a cable television channel. Six games a season are on one of the ESPN streaming channels each year unless you live near the college campus.
I’ve typically watched those games on my computer, but I would prefer watching them on the television. Yes, I could run an HDMI cable from my laptop to the TV. But even that isn’t as convenient as I’d like.
Therefore I purchased a solution. Note that I am going to provide Amazon links to the product for which I receive a small commission. I’ve received nothing from Roku in compensation. The solution I purchased is the Roku Streaming Stick. It supports the ESPN streaming service I need for my games. But that is only a small part of what it delivers.
Along with the stick itself is a remote control. There is also an iOS or Android app to control it with your smartphone or tablet. As it is so small, you can take it with you to a hotel or any other location you visit that has WiFi. This is great for me if I happen to be on the road for one of the games I need to stream. As an Amazon Prime member, I’m sure I’ll also take advantage of more content provided as part of the service.
