Following closely on the company’s announcement in March that it had entered into retail, US Internet TV platform Roku has confirmed that the Roku XD player is now available at all Walmart stores nationwide.

“We know that our customers love having instant access to entertainment on their TVs – and at great value. With the Roku XD player now available at Walmart, customers can get dad the perfect gift just in time for Father’s Day,” said Roku Founder and CEO Anthony Wood. “Whether it’s dad-centric flicks, sports or tips for grilling the perfect steak, Roku offers something for dad every time he sits down to enjoy TV.”

With more than 250 entertainment channels, Roku players deliver a wide collection of streaming entertainment available for the TV. Roku customers can choose from a selection of movies and TV shows from souces such as Netflix, Hulu Plus and Amazon Instant Video.
