Roku releases its fastest media streamer to date -- Roku 3
Today, <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/280399==http://www.roku.com" rel='nofollow'>Roku</a> is launching its fastest media streamer to date. Benchmarked by the company at over five times faster than previous players, the new <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/280400==http://www.roku.com/why-its-cool" rel='nofollow'>Roku 3 streamer</a> boasts wide connectivity, a new user interface, a remote with a headphone jack for private listening, and an updated Roku Channel store.<br />
<br />
The Roku 3 enhanced remote features a built-in headphone jack for private listening with the included in-ear headphones. Volume buttons on the remote control audio while private listening mode is in use. Additionally, the remote doubles as a motion-sensing game controller for gameplay. Roku's free app for iOS and Android allow mobile devices to be used as a controller for the streaming box.

Roku 3 comes pre-loaded with more than 750 channels of entertainment, 1080p HD support, dual-band 802.11n wireless, 10/100 Ethernet, USB ports, and a microSD slot. Recently launched channels on the Roku platform include TWC TV, BlockBuster On Demand and iHeartRadio. Other channels launching soon include FOX NOW, PBS and PBS KIDS.

The Roku 3 is available now for $100 in the US through Roku.com, Amazon and several other online retailers. It will be available at major retail chains beginning in April.
