Roku Launches New Line of TV Streaming Players

Roku is ready to make a difference in its set top boxes. This refreshing move will not count for the Roku 3, but it will apply to the rest of the products. Roku LT is the cheapest version of them all and costs a nominal $50. It has a 720p playback facility

Roku 1 meanwhile is way ahead of this. For one thing, it has a 1080p video setup. Worth $59.99 or £59.99 for US, UK and Ireland, it has Full HD content to boot. Canadian users can get Roku 1 for $69.99. Coming to Roku 2, the best one among the series, it costs $79.99/£79.99 and has a famous remote with an intrinsic headphone jack. Roku 2 is priced at $89.99 for Canadian users. 

It also possesses dual-band wireless connectivity which only increases the easiness felt in using the device. The three Roku box set tops will be sold at outlets starting from October of this year. As for the Roku 3, it will also find its way to the market for similar goods in Canada, the UK and Ireland for $110. 

Jim Funk, SVP of product management, Roku , said, “These new players bring useful improvements at existing prices – just in time for the holidays. We’re giving customers more value for their money by adding a headphone jack for private listening and dual-band wireless to the Roku 2, and support for 1080p HD video to the Roku 1. We are excited to bring these and other great features to our new line-up which provides a better TV experience across every price point.”

Besides this, Roku is joining hands with Technicolor’s MG-O Service. This third party will grant new movies and TV shows to the platform. It is indeed a time of great change and exhilaration at Roku. Its three top of the line streaming set top boxes are just what the bored people who are starved for entertainment have been looking for. They will find that it fulfills all their unmet needs.
