“We are dedicated to providing users with the simplest way to stream entertainment to their TV at an affordable price. The new Roku Express 4K offers tremendous value as 4K streaming has become a benchmark in technology and entertainment. We believe consumers are going to be impressed with the quality they can get from Roku at this price point,” said Mark Ely, VP of Retail Product Strategy at Roku.

Roku OS 10 also brings automatic WiFi detection and game console configuration settings for gamers, which will automatically detect several game consoles and optimise the TVs performance for playing games. Automatic configuration may include HDR gaming, low-latency mode, variable refresh rate, high frame rate and THX-certified game mode.

The operating system is being actively rolled out and will reach supported products in the coming weeks.

“With Roku US 10, we simplify the setup by taking the guesswork out of the more complex network and gaming features by automating them. We are also adding tremendous value by expanding Apple AirPlay and HomeKit support to our full current lineup,” said Ilya Asnis, senior VP of Roku OS at Roku.
