MP3tunes and Roku stream music to your TV

To boob tube via Wi-Fi

The Power of One Infographic

Today's forecast for personal music collections: cloudy.

Apple is reportedly mulling a move to iTunes-in-the-cloud (that big ol' North Carolina data center is just about ready), Google and Microsoft are making their moves, We7 and Spotify are tapping toes in the UK and beyond, and MP3tunes has opened it's free-if-you-don't-want-much-space, pay-more-for-more music-storage service, Music Locker.

Whether you own your music or you simply want to choose from some company's vast collection of tunes, you have a growing number of choices of where to get it, then play it on your PC, Mac, or handheld.

Now the folks who brought you the Music Locker and its "buy anywhere, listen everywhere" scheme have joined the streaming services — video and music — provided by Roku to add your TV to your music-playing device list.

To bring your Music Locker–ensconced tunes to your TV — which, as MP3tunes founder Michael Robertson says, may very well have "the best speakers in the house" — you'll need one of Roku's eponymous Wi-Fi streaming boxes: the $69.99 Roku SD, $89.99 HD, and $119.99 HD XR (which upgrades the wireless connection to 802.11n/b/g), and a free MP3tunes channel registration at Roku's Channel Store. Upload your tunes, and you're good to go. ®
