Roku Has a Streaming Media Adapter That Fits Your Needs
Roku is refreshing its product portfolio and filling potential gaps in its lineup; in addition the company implemented a new naming convention for its series of products, moving away from its number based system to tiers. Roku will now offer products priced at the low end to compete with products like Google’s Chromecast in the “Express” category (pricing starting at $29.99), the Stick (priced at $49.99) for portability, the “Premiere” products serve as the mid-tier solution (priced at $79.99 and $99.99 for the Premiere and Premiere+ respectively), and finally the Ultra at the top end (priced at $129.99). The Premiere boxes support 4K (Premiere+ adds HDR) while the Ultra adds additional connectivity options (e.g. optical), a more advanced remote (including gaming buttons) and support for a wider selection of audio formats.
