For my Canton buddies who wants to watch TVB in the US. I found a solution (well, for my parents’s short-term visiting). Yes, no dish needed for the installation, it uses Roku. Here are your options:

  • Option A – if you already own Roku, purchase Dishworld channel’s Cantonese TVB, $15 per month for the first 3 months, no contract ($40 per month after).
  • Option B – if you don’t have Roku, they offer Free Roku LT if you prepay 4 months in adv ($15×3+$40 = $85). And yes – if you want to cancel it after 4 months, you get to KEEP the Roku LT ($50 on amazon).
  • Option C (what i prefer to do) – Buy new version Roku 3 at Costco ($99) and signup TVB for 3 months, parents left – cancel it.

FYI, the different between Roku LT and Version 3 are: faster speed if you use a dualband rounter, 1080p instead of 720p, V3′s remote control has headphone jack and motion sensor for gaming. Goodluck!

    Thanks for the info. With option C, how much do you pay per month? Is it $15? Do you know anything about TV Pad?

  2. Hi Chi, we paid $16.12 per month (tax included). We called to cancel it before the 3rd month because our parents had returned home. DishWorld offered us another month for $1.00 over the phone. We cancelled it still. Sorry, I don’t know about the TV Pad.
