Roku 1, 2 and 3

Roku 1, 2 and 3Roku, makers of the streaming TV, film, music and gaming boxes, launched a new family of Roku devices on Wednesday and is bringing its top-of-the-line Roku 3 unit which has been available in the US since earlier in the year to the UK and Ireland. The devices announced on Wednesday include an updated Roku LT for the US market and new models called the Roku 1 and Roku 2, which along with the Roku 3 will be coming to the UK and Ireland. All UK-bound models (Roku 1, 2 and 3) see mostly small, incremental hardware upgrades from other models but with the addition of genuinely useful features. For example, while the Roku 1, 2 and 3 devices provide access to the Roku Channel Store – home to favorites like Netflix, BBC iPlayer, and around 450 other content providers – the Roku 1 now supports full 1080p content where the equivalent model previously maxed out at 720p.
