Roku is great. Subtitle support plus really easy to use. My parents are in their late 70's and they can easily manage it....and they are the farthest thing from tech-savvy. I have the Apple TV 2 but have never used it for Netflix. I would think it would deliver virtually equivalent functionality. The benefit of the Roku 3 is that the remote has a headphone jack, so one person could watch movies without disturbing the other who was sleeping, reading the newspaper, or yelling at kids to get off his lawn.
