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 speakersJim 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…
