Roku has a lot of great features right out of the box, but being able to stream movies from your home network is not one of them. Fortunately there is a free solution for this. With a little help from Plex Media Server and a little bit of your time, you can easily setup a home media server that will stream movies to your Roku box and other devices on your home network.
You don’t need to have a fancy home network setup in order to stream movies on Android devices such as your phone or tablet. If you have a Windows computer and WiFi, you can easily do this with very little setup time.
