Re: The Roku Thread

The Roku Channel has started rolling out. Free ad-supported movies from major Hollywood studios. There's about 20-40 movies in each genre. It's a pretty good selection of titles, almost all are mainstream films.

UPDATE - Here's more info on the Roku Channel:

Re: The Roku Thread

I really hope Roku announces their new products soon. That Amazon Fire TV new dongle pretty much checks all the boxes if you want HDR+4K at a cheap price.

Re: The Roku Thread

They went Public yesterday at $14/share, currently are at $28.25/share

Now they have money, they better start pouring out the features.

Re: The Roku Thread

To be fair, that was the IPO price, the actual price when trading started was around $17.

Shoulda bought at $17.

Re: The Roku Thread

So they did announce their new products: https://www.wired.com/story/roku-201...up-4k-players/

Looks like I'll be getting streaming stick+. Checks all the boxes, does 4K + HDR. Cheaper than the Ultra, but I don't need the USB/MicroSD stuff.

Down to 23.50 today. Don't be surprised to see it hit below 20 soon.

Unless you were prepared to invest heavily don't feel so bad.

I upgraded to a streaming stick last year and I'm really happy with it, but I may upgrade to the new stick if they have some good deals during the Christmas shopping season. My mom and dad still have two Roku SEs that were released on Black Friday 2015 for $25 and they still work great. I streamed NFL Redzone on one for close to seven hours on Sunday and the picture quality looked great. I really like Roku products. They always seem to stream better than other devices.
