I don't watch AMC because their shows are lame, IMHO. That's not how I got the free ROKU. I should complain about AMC and get a 2nd ROKU? :D :D :D

Dish offered me a free ROKU because my Sling adapter is currently useless. The tech support team told me the issue was in the app. It ceased working after the August update. They had no idea when an update would be out to fix it, so they offered me a choice of HBO or STARZ for 50% off for a year, or the ROKU. I chose the ROKU. (only because I have never heard of the ROKU before and thought it was a $200 device :( )

So apparently Dish is just sending out free ROKU to customers as compensation? :(

Right. Actually you can buy the Roku box from a store for $60-90.
