Hot on the heels of its release in the UK, streaming platform and device specialist Roku is to launch its popular Roku Express streaming player in France. Roku Express is the most affordable streaming player Roku ever launched in France, priced at €34.99 MSRP.
It comes with everything in the box to get started, including a simple-to-use remote control and HDMI cable. This is the second-generation of the Roku Express and is five times more powerful than its predecessor.
“The Roku Express is one of our most popular streaming players, and we are excited to bring it to consumers in France. It is a great starting point for first time streamers or for people looking to extend the Roku experience to other TVs,” said Chas Smith, general manager of Roku TVs and players.
Roku devices are powered by the Roku OS and feature a simple home screen. Consumers in France can access 3,500+ streaming channels, including 100,000 movies and TV episodes. They can also download the free Roku app for iOS and Android mobile devices which acts as a remote, streams media from a mobile device to the TV, includes a keyboard and offers features such as private listening.
The Roku Express is expected to be available online later in October.
