Sanyo Roku TVs coming soon in Canada

So, who wouldn't want a TV you could control with your phone?

Roku is my all time favourite streaming device, and having it built into the phone would be awesome (I reviewed the Insignia one a while back).

Maybe I should grab this new Sanyo TV with it built in, rather just buy their new stick
