I am considering trying Sony on the Roku.  I already have Sling TV and have 
tried several others.

I have my Roku attached to a switch that uses an NS2M to connect to our house 
WAP. Works fine.

So maybe they have a crappy WiFi interface?

    See that’s kinda funny for me… I have several Roku boxes and my experience 
with all of them has been garbage…. 

    Netflix is probably the most dependable app but even with it I’ve had some 
weird things go on … Plex I have issues with every so often (audio out of sync 
for example).  When I try the same “programming” on Apple TV or PS4 I have zero 
issues.  It got to the point where I just packed them all up into a box and 
threw them into a storage bin … only recently did I pull out a Roku 2 and Roku 
3 to test an app from a competitor offering IPTV via Roku - it sucked badly too 
and other people trialling the service were having issues too …

        The problem with whatever app is on the TV (or if there is an app), is 
that if the TV is more than 1 year old, it will never be updated again.

        The Netflix app on our (now) 5 year old LG is a poor example of how 
Netflix should actually work (or any of the online streaming services for that 
matter). I didn't realize how poor until we installed a ROKU 2, and found out 
what a reasonably modern implementation looked like.

          In your experience, does it help if the customer goes through the 
procedure to update the app on the smart TV?

          Most of the smart TVs we run into seem to be Samsung.  I know a lot 
of the early ones also didn’t seem to play well with certain WiFi routers.
