The Roku 3 has officially been announced and comes fully loaded with more than 750 channels of entertainment, 1080p HD support, dual-band wireless, Ethernet and USB ports, and a microSD slot. The fastest, most powerful Roku streaming player to date, Roku 3 comes with a faster processor and an enhanced remote with a headphone jack for private listening. Volume buttons on the remote offer a convenient way to control audio while private listening mode is in use. Additionally, the remote doubles as a motion-sensing game controller for playing games like Angry Birds Space. For even more entertainment possibilities, Roku’s free app for iOS and Android devices transforms a phone into the ultimate Roku command center.
Roku’s new interface maintains the simplicity that Roku is known for, while providing improved access to channels. And the fully integrated Roku Channel Store and one-stop search lets customers easily pinpoint what they want to watch – and get there instantly. The new interface will automatically roll out as a free software update in April to all current-generation Roku devices – Roku LT, Roku HD (model 2500R), Roku 2 HD, Roku 2 XD, Roku 2 XS and the Roku Streaming Stick.
The Roku 3 streaming player is available now in the United States through Roku.com, Amazon.com and other leading online retailers for a suggested retail price of $99.99. It will also be available in retail stores nationwide beginning in April.
