Roku Releases Upgraded Streaming Stick

Fans of the Roku streaming stick have always loved the compact size and lack of cumbersome wires. The one drawback that the device had is that it trailed quite a bit behind the larger Roku models as far as speed and performance. Roku has now closed the gap with it’s new and improved Roku stick.

Roku highlighted some of the new features on their blog this morning:

  • Only pocket-sized streamer with a quad-core processor; more processing power than Amazon Fire TV stick and Google Chromecast™
  • Private listening via a mobile phone or tablet using the Roku Mobile App for iOS and Android™ devices (learn more below)
  • Dual-band MIMO wireless for great connectivity
  • Included remote for easy navigation and control
  • Small, sleek design makes it simple to move between TVs in the home or use while traveling
  • Cast video from Netflix and YouTube mobile apps directly to the TV
  • Control with Roku Mobile App for iOS and Android – play personal video, photos and music on TV using the Play On Roku feature
  • Hotel and Dorm Connect for easy connection to wireless networks away from home
  • Access to more than 3,000 streaming channels, including 300,000 available movies and TV episodes
  • Roku’s comprehensive and unbiased universal search feature helps you find availability and pricing for movies and TV shows across more than 30 top streaming channels.
  • The Roku Feed feature lets you know when your favorite entertainment, such as movies and TV shows, become available for streaming – and at what price.

From the sounds of things Roku has released a streaming stick that should eliminate any doubt that they are the leader in streaming media players.
