Roku presents the new boxes as follow:
The new Roku LT is the easiest and most affordable way to stream to virtually any TV with support for up to 720p HD video quality.
The Roku 1 takes streaming a step further than the Roku LT with support for up to 1080p HD video quality.
The Roku 2 offers the same great experience as the Roku 1 and features a remote with built-in headphone jack for private listening and dual-band wireless for better Internet connectivity. Both are popular features that were previously available only with the Roku 3.
Leading the family is the flagship Roku 3 which launched in the U.S. in March. The fastest-and-most-powerful Roku player to date, Roku 3 sets the bar for streaming with all the features of the Roku 2 plus Ethernet and USB ports and an enhanced remote with built-in headphone jack and motion-control for gaming.
