Cable TV or ROKU

I live in an apartment complex on the first floor and now pay for cable TV. I found several websites on ROKU. One was their channel lineup and another one was how to hook up a ROKU. I have two HDTVs in my apartment. One is in the living room and the other in the bedroom. I have an older computer that is wired into a Wi Fi modem and my laptop is wireless running off the same modem.

I would like to know if I were to buy two ROKU boxes, one for each TV with the option of returning them for a refund if they didn't work out could I run both ROKUs using the wireless Wi Fi in my apartment and be able to watch the programs?

I would greatly appreciate all feedback to my question.

Thank you!

You should be able to run two Rokus in one apartment with your wifi.

You can definitely run two Roku boxes off the same Wi-Fi. However, your bandwidth may become an issue if you try to watch two shows at the same time on both TVs.

Roku isn't a true replacement for either cable or OTA TV broadcasts, but it is a really good replacement for many people who are tired of the expense of cable TV. As long as you have a reasonable high speed service and moderate bandwidth you should be fine with the Rokus.

If you are nervous about the expense, then start with only one unit, say in your living room and get a feel for it.

I greatly appreciate your feedback to my question. I didn't realize there might be a problem if I tried using two Rokus at the same time on both TVs.
My husband and I came to a logical solution of retaining our cable service but will downgrade to a basic cable subscription which will cost us less than $20. At the present time we are paying about $90 for cable TV (including the cost of leasing the equipment). So now we will be saving about $70 per month.

And we will only be buying one Roku instead of two.

Here is a very good comparison chart you may want to check before buying a device:
