Roku’s next streaming boxes will have new names like ‘Premiere’ and ‘Ultra’

The Roku 1 will be replaced by the Roku Express and Roku Express Plus, though it’s not yet clear what the difference between these two boxes will be. One could offer a slightly faster processor or better remote. The Roku Premiere and Roku Premiere Plus will succeed the existing Roku 2 and Roku 3 models, and both are expected to support 4K video. At present, only the current Roku 4 supports Ultra HD video. The Premiere Plus may also be compatible with HDR video for added dynamic range and a more immersive viewing experience. Then at the top of the lineup will be the Roku Ultra, the followup to last year’s Roku 4. – Chris Welch, The Verge http://ift.tt/2bPCCDx
