Roku, makers of the streaming set-top box with the same name, have updated their lineup today with lower prices, better features and a slimmed down design.
The Roku HD retails for $60, streams content at 720p and includes built-in Wi-Fi and an Ethernet port. It’s a mere inch tall and 5 inches across. A composite cable is included but it does have an HDMI port.
The Roku XD and XDS sell for $80 and $100, respectively. Both models stream at full HD (1080p) over Wireless-N. The XDS model includes dual-band Wireless-N, component video out, and optical audio out. A firmware upgrade in November will allow you to stream 1080p content from a USB drive.
All three models are available starting today.
