Roku unveiled a new low cost streaming box today with the Roku LT.

Roku announced the lowest priced video streaming box on the market with a price tag of just $49.99. Called the Roku LT, this new player works with virtually any TV and delivers the full Roku streaming experience with more than 300 channels including Netflix, Hulu Plus, Amazon Instant Video, Pandora, EPIX, Crackle, Disney, and the newly added HBO Go

“Our goal is a Roku in every home,” said Roku Founder and CEO Anthony Wood. “The Roku LT opens up streaming to more people by lowering the cost of entry in these difficult economic times. With a $49 price and selection of more than 300 channels we expect the Roku LT will be everyone’s favorite Holiday device.”

The Roku LT streams 720p high‐definition video and features built‐in wireless. The Roku LT will be available from early November. Roku LT will be one of the hottest electronics gifts. At below $50 it is almost a stocking stuffer.

The Roku LT complements the Roku 2 family of streaming players which was introduced in late July. The Roku 2 family features casual gaming as well as streaming video and music. Roku 2 is available in three models – Roku 2 HD ($59.99), Roku 2 XD ($79.99) and Roku 2 XS ($99.99)—all feature Bluetooth and a microSD card slot. The flagship Roku 2 XS model comes standard with the Bluetooth‐ enabled Roku Game Remote with motion control for games like Angry Birds.
