Arriving this October is the brand new Roku 4 streaming player, which will feature brand-new software and app updates, 4K compatibility, and a sleek, slightly larger new console; the Roku 4 will retail for $129.99. If you’re new to Roku streaming or are already making a list of gift-worthy gadgets to buy this coming holiday season, here’s everything you need to know about the Roku 4, which CEO Anthony Wood claims is his company’s “best streaming player ever.”
First, a little background for Roku newbies. Like Apple TV, Google Chromecast, Amazon Fire TV, or any other streaming console you can think of: Roku is here to help you stream via a device that plugs directly into your television set either through HDMI or, for you box-TV dinosaurs, auxiliary input. They feature an array of different models — Rokus 1, 2, and 3, as well as the Roku Streaming Stick — to accommodate old, new, and even their own smart TV. All devices, though different from one another, serve the same purpose of helping you stream your favorite movies and shows.
