    I feel like everything it can do, my TV and cable box already have the ability to do.

    If you are at all steeped in mac get an apple tv, but they are pretty much all the same at the moment. Good for netflix, hulu, and the like.

    My TV can stream and I have on demand for all the premium channels. Why would anyone like me need Roku or Apple TV?

    I mostly use mine for netflix, though I guess I could just stream it too, but I have all apple products so I can airplay my iPhone, iPad, and computer to the tv.

    HBO go should be available as a stand alone app or subscription. I have no interest in buying HBO.

    netflix, hulu plus, and amazon prime video are the only reasons i can think of. the other shit available is pretty much shit.
