CES 2015 is now in full swing with a number of companies announcing new and interesting products. One of which is Roku, who has so far announced a series of new Roku TVs and deeper 4K Ultra HD content support across the board.

Not only is the company planning to support 4K for future Roku TV models, the company has also teamed up with online content powerhouse Netflix to offer 4K content on Roku’s streaming boxes/sticks in the future. As 4K TV prices plummet, both companies are looking to offer solid Ultra HD solutions for their customers, something Roku believes is instrumental in the overall adoption of higher resolution content.

Head below for more details on the new Roku TVs and future 4K support for the platform:

Roku, maker of the most popular streaming player in America, has just announced its plans to release an actual TV. Through a partnership with TCL and Hisense, the Roku TV will have Roku’s software baked-in and includes a simple 20-button remote control. Users’ smart devices will also be able to be used to navigate the TV. Roku players boast the most streaming content and the new TV sets will be no different:

Just like Roku streaming players, Roku TV will have full access to the Roku Channel Store filled with more than 31,000 movies and 1,200 channels that feature TV shows and live sports plus news, music, kids, food, science, tech, fitness, foreign language and other programming

Smart TVs have traditionally lacked a great user interface so hopefully the Roku TV will buck that trend and deliver an improved TV experience.

Roku TV will be available this fall in sizes ranging from 32 to 55 inches. No pricing information was available at press time.roku-1-deal

In the meantime, you can take advantage of a special offer to get streaming media on your current TV right now. Get a Roku 1 player for just $49.99. That’s only $2 over the best price ever. expand full story
