Haier’s Roku TVs will be available in sizes from 32 to 65 inches. Roku further says that TCL will release 12 new Roku TVs from TCL in 2015.
4K Ultra HD TV sales are surging and Roku has taken notice. Roku announced today that it will support 4K Ultra HD on Roku TV, meaning that its TV partners can start working on 4K TVs with Roku TV built-in that support 4K streaming. Netflix will be one of the first partners for 4K on the Roku platform.
- “We are very bullish on 4K as we believe that streaming will be instrumental in its adoption. Bringing 4K to the Roku platform will give consumers even more choice and control of their entertainment viewing, and deliver the best streaming experience available” said Roku CEO Anthony Wood.
Roku has over 2000 channels, including Netflix, YouTube, Hulu Plus and many more.
