New Roku 3 Box, Remote + Wireless Headphones
Competition is good and Roku just upped its game in a big way with a new set top streamer, the Roku 3, as well as an interface/software refresh for legacy boxes. New is good and keeping the installed base happy is a good thing™, too. But the good news doesn’t end there — trip on in for the details.
Clocking in at over five times faster than our previous players, the Roku 3 will get you to your favorite movies and TV shows in a flash. Even better, the Enhanced Remote with an integrated headphone jack makes it easy to enjoy TV time anytime. Just plug in the included in-ear headphones and Roku instantly switches audio to the headphones while muting your TV speakers — Jim Funk, VP, product management, Roku.

But rather than try to explain the features in the Roku 3 ($99.99, available today), here is a quick video that hits most of the main points.
Roku will deliver the new user interface and some, though not all (i.e. YouTube channel), of the features/channels to existing Roku owners in April.
And, did we mention 750 channels? Yeah, lots of those are pay to play, but a larger number are free for the taking — good stuff…
