Roku has announced a new line up of streaming players with features, prices and performance for every kind of streamer. Setting a new milestone, Roku launched its tiniest streaming player yet– the new Roku Express offers a fast and complete experience with 1080p HD streaming for $29.99 MSRP. Roku Express and Roku Express+ are a great solution for consumers who want a low-cost way to start streaming or for those who wish to extend TV streaming throughout their home inexpensively.
The Roku Premiere+ supports HDR for vibrant picture quality and includes a point anywhere remote with a headphone jack for private listening. Rounding out the line is the fully loaded Roku Ultra (pictured) for an ideal streaming experience which also includes support for HDR, Dolby Digital Plus decode, voice search and lost remote finder. These five new streaming players complement the very popular Roku Streaming Stick introduced in April, and offer consumers the most complete streaming player lineup.
“Roku stands for streaming innovation and today we’re celebrating the biggest player launch in our company’s history, including the introduction of the Roku Express player which delivers a complete streaming experience for a shockingly low price of $29.99,” said Anthony Wood, Roku Founder and CEO. “Whether consumers simply want fast HD streaming via an inexpensive device or are looking for a top-of-the-line player with advanced features such as 4K and HDR, Roku is an easy choice.”
“Roku devices are powered by the Roku OS and feature a simple home screen with access to 3,500+ streaming channels, including 350,000 movies and TV episodes in the U.S. Roku devices feature the most comprehensive and unbiased search in the industry now across 100+ streaming channels. Search a movie, TV show, actor or director and the Roku OS will display where content is available and serve results in order of price; starting with what is free or lowest cost for the user. Roku has added unprecedented depth to its search capabilities with a wide variety of channels that cover comedy, news, concerts, sports and long-tail content.”
