Hey guys,

As many of you will be too, I am tuning in to SAO Extra Edition later on today (roughly 4 hours at time of writing). The question I have regarding the stream is: Will the stream be live at 4pm (GMT) on Roku, the same time the PC release goes live?

I've seen (from a while ago) reports of Roku streams being an hour or so behind the desktop counterparts and am wondering whether this will affect me later or not. I could connect my PC to the TV but the Now TV Box (which is ROKU) is simpler and easier to set-up and use since its already there.

Many Thanks in advance,
L0RDWAFFLE a.k.a. James W

I expect it won't be handled any differently than other anime shows are during regular season. It's not that the stream isn't available on Roku at the same time as on PC (it always is there at the same time)--it's the subtitles that are usually a little behind.

Here's what to do:

Try it on Roku--see no subtitles, but you MUST WATCH NOW?
Connect the PC. (which will mean you lose a few precious minutes hooking it up in which you could have been watching, but I'm sure you've got the fortitude to survive and endure )

(What you really need is a dual-wielding tv--then you could connect both the Roku and the PC at the same time! (That's my current setup)

Quote put in spoilers as a little long..

That's something I will sure try then thanks. Or I could just learn Japanese super fast within an hour I can survive a couple of minutes, I'll probably hook the PC up to the 3rd HDMI anyway so I can just change the input on the TV, saving me a few minutes.
I'm too poor for a super fancy Picture in Picture TV or Dual TV's, it cost me enough for my dual monitor setup. Plus I would rather 32inches of screen space compared to 20inches.

Thanks for your help lorreen
