Roku announces refreshed lineup of devices starting at $50: Roku LT, Roku 1 and Roku 2

Roku LT-Roku 1-Roku 2-new models-announced-01Roku has just announced a refreshed line up of devices, that includes updated models of its lower end streaming boxes. While the Roku 3 has been leading the way in the set-top box market place alongside the Apple TV, today the company announced the new Roku LT as well as the Roku 1 and Roku 2 which will replace the Roku HD and Roku 2 XD (via Wired).

The new models will come along with all the content the boxes normally come with, including access to over 1000 different content channels or apps from within the Roku Channel Store. With access to apps like Amazon Instant Video and Crackle, many feel this is where the platform carries an interesting advantage over Apple TV.

Another interesting addition to the system is the M-Go video service partnership the company has now announced. It appears as though Roku is stepping into the content space without having to implement its own content service. With M-Go, users can rent or purchase movies and TV Shows with the purchases connected to your existing Roku account.

Roku LT-Roku 1-Roku 2-M-Go-movies-01

Pre-orders are available now for the new Roku boxes on the official site and through Amazon, with units expected to hit store shelves in October. The 720p Roku LT starts at $50, the 1080p Roku 1 will be available for $60 and the $80 Roku 2 comes with 1080p, dual-band wireless options, and a slick little headphone jack in the remote. Even though the new models don’t come with the motion-control remote and the Ethernet port like the Roku 3 (which is currently $5 off on Amazon), the company has added composite input options to make up for it.

Roku HD, 6 months of Hulu Plus, HDMI cable $80 Shipped (35% discount)

Screen Shot 2013-05-07 at 3.54.33 PM

As a Mother’s Day special, Roku is offering a limited-time bundle that includes a Roku HD, 6 months of Hulu Plus, an HDMI cable and free shipping for only $80.  This entire package is valued at $127, a total savings of 35%,  There a few important points to note, free shipping does not guarantee delivery by Mothers Day, it is $15 for 2-day shipping.  Also, the Roku HD does not support 1080p, so if your mom is a stickler for HD quality you may want to look towards a discounted Roku 2 XD (on sale for $70). Oh and no we don’t blame you if you just go ahead and buy this package for yourself, it’s that good. (via CNET)
