Hello Roku? We need more Rokus!

So Roku is doing a big marketing push – I get that. I totally support it. The Roku2 ROCKS!
Anthony has gotten some great press lately – yea for him:

Roku is generally kicking ass and taking names. Go guys.

But – when you do a big marketing push, shouldn’t you have product to sell to the customer demand you are generating? This week alone, Roku was out-of-stock on the LT for 3 days and the HD is still out-of-stock, 4 days and running. Normally, I wouldn’t care so much, but since we are giving away a Roku with each Lifetime purchase of PlayOn, the stock outs are really annoying me, and my customers.

So guys, let’s try to keep the LT in stock (hint: it’s selling like gangbusters, order more now!).

Cheers!
