The Premiere device comes amidst a growing number of consumer electronic devices. Roku will ship in November of 2018, the Roku TV Wireless Speakers. The Roku remote is configured to control the volume of the speakers as well. Those speakers, which come in a pair, make for a multi-dimensional sound experience.

  • Streaming Buttons Directly on the Remote – A set of streaming buttons should be available directly from the remote
  • Streaming Application Icons directly on the TV menu – Easy Access to Streaming Apps in a single click
  • Remembers where you last left off – The TV application should remember directly where you left off in the last show.
  • High Resolution Display of at least 1080p – A resolution of at least 1080p.  And with 4K content finally becoming more accessible, its worth exploring.
