Roku today launched its tiniest streaming player yet: the $30 Roku Express with 1080p HD streaming.
Built for TVs with HDMI, the Express comes with a remote control, HDMI cable, and $29.99 price tag.
Its sibling, the Express+, comes with the same features, but costs $39.99 and supports older television sets that use a legacy A/V connection (Red/White/Yellow).
If you’re looking for something with a bit more power, Roku also introduced its Premiere and Premiere+ products, which include quad-core processors and can stream 4K Ultra HD at up to 60 frames per second Available for $79.99 and $99.99, respectively, the Premiere line can upscale 720p to 1080p on HDTVs and 720p or 1080p to 4K on compatible sets, and boasts dual-band wireless, an IR remote control, and night-listening mode.
The high-end Plus, meanwhile, supports HDR, and comes with a USB port for local media playback and point-anywhere remote with headphone jack.
Rounding out the family is the fully loaded Roku Ultra (pictured), promising support for HDR, Dolby Digital Plus decode, voice search, and lost-remote finder.
“Whether customers simply want fast HD streaming via an inexpensive device or are looking for a top-of-the-line player with advanced features such as 4K and HDR, Roku is an easy choice,” company founder and CEO Anthony Wood said in a statement.
The Express, Premiere, Premiere+, and Ultra streaming players are available for pre-order now via Roku.com, Walmart, Best Buy, and Amazon and arrive on Oct. 9. The Express+ will be exclusive to Walmart.
Roku in April unveiled the next-gen Streaming Stick with eight times more processing power than its predecessor, despite being smaller and more compact. The $50 dongle is the first (and only) Roku device to offer private listening through the mobile app.
