Roku didn’t just have a partnership with M-Go to announce earlier this morning as the company is also announcing a new line of streaming players that will give consumers more ways to experience streaming content within their homes.
Roku has unveiled three new players in addition to the already launched Roku 3: the Roku LT, Roku 1 an Roku 2. The Roku LT seems to be a low-budget way for consumers to experience streaming content as it only offers support for 720p video, but only costs $49.99. The Roku 1 is a step up above the Roku LT as it supports 1080p video and retails for $59.99. The Roku 2 sits right between the Roku 1 and Roku 3 as it also supports 1080p videos while also offering a built-in headphone jack for private listening as well as dual-band wireless. The Roku 2 will retail for $79.99.
The final piece of the Roku family of products is the Roku 3, which the company made available earlier this year. The Roku 3 is the fastest and most powerful Roku player to date and features Ethernet and USB ports, an enhanced remote control, a built-in headphone jack and motion-control for gaming. The Roku 3 is currently available for $99.99 while the newly-announced Roku LT, Roku 1 and Roku 2 are expected to be available starting in October.
