    Default I have a Roku question.

    I have a question. Can you watch (let's say, a Nascar Race LIVE as it is being run or do you have to watch it later, after the fact? I would like to use a roku but am not sure about LIVE programs.

    Live programming is a weakness of using Roku. The only things available to watch are the ones that have been specifically added to the Roku channels. From what I have seen that rarely includes sporting events. Many people who have Roku supplement it with an antenna or basic cable, but that does not give you the ability to watch things on those channels at a later time. I think the only way to that is to add a DVR to the mix and record over the air shows yourself.

    I suppose that depends on how important those shows are to you. I don't have one and am perfectly content without it.
