Thanks for the heads up. I signed in with my Roku box and added the channel. And to my surprise even though I had an existing account it still gave me a $5.99 credit.

Watched a 2 minute of a movie called Safe (Jason Statham) in 1080p and DD+ on my 100" PJ and it was very good. A good argument for streaming versus trying to find the video in the local video store.

System One: Popcorn Hour A200,  PS3 SuperSlim, NPVR running on Gigabyte Brix, Sony BDP-S390 BD player, Logitech Revue, Pioneer AVR, Panasonic 60" 3D plasma

System Two: Popcorn Hour A200 ,  Oppo BDP-80 BluRay Player with hardware mode to be region free, Vivitek HD1080P 1080P DLP projector with 100" screen. Harman Kardon HK AVR 254 7.1 receiver, Toshiba HD-A2 HD-DVD player, Roku XS media player
