Roku launches USD 50 quad-core streaming stick

Tuesday 5 April 2016 | 16:26 CET | News
Roku has unveiled a revamped streaming stick, boasting eight times the processing power of the previous stick released in 2014. The new HDMI dongle comes with a quad-core processor and a dual-band MIMO antenna for better connectivity. It's also the first Roku device to offer private listening via Wi-Fi to a smartphone or tablet using the free Roku app for iOS and Android devices. The app also acts as a remote control and lets users set up voice search. The new Roku streaming stick is available for pre-order on Roku's website and will be available at the end of the month.
