Roku updates Roku LT, Roku 1, Roku 2 to match Roku 3
<a href="" rel='nofollow'>Roku</a> has refreshed a majority of its line of streaming set-top boxes, in order to coordinate with its <a href=" ones/" rel='nofollow'>existing Roku 3</a>. While the Roku 3 remains the same, the new Roku 1, Roku 2, and Roku LT all have a number of hardware and software updates, as well as an overhaul in external design to match the current flagship model. <br />
<br />
The <a href="" rel='nofollow'>Roku LT</a> sees little in the way of changes, and is limited to playback of 720p video. The <a href="" rel='nofollow'>Roku 1</a> adds support for 1080p video playback, and access to the Roku Channel Store. Dual-band Wi-Fi appears in the <a href="" rel='nofollow'>Roku 2</a>, along with the remote control with a built-in headphone jack found on the Roku 3, while the <a href="" rel='nofollow'>Roku 3</a> itself boasts Ethernet and USB ports on top of the Roku 2's offering. <br />
<br />
The Roku LT, Roku 1, and Roku 2 cost $50, $60, and $80 respectively, with shipping estimated for October 8th. The Roku 1 and 2 will also be heading to the UK in October for &pound;60 and &pound;80 each, while the Roku 3 is available in the country for &pound;100. <br />
<br />
At the same time as revealing the new devices, Roku announced a new partnership with M-GO, which will add shortcuts for "movies" and "TV shows" on the Roku home screen itself, allowing for quick purchase of M-GO offerings without needing to launch another app. M-GO will also receive a dedicated button on the new remote controls.
