Roku's new top of the line streaming box

Techstination feature for Wednesday, November 2, 2016

A top of the line new streaming box from Roku.    I’m Fred Fishkin with BootCamp, your Techstination for gadgets and gear.     Roku calls it the Ultra….it’s new high end box that includes  a quad core processor…802.11ac dual band wireless and 4K Ultra HD capability…including HDR.   It even upscales 1080p content to UHD.   Director of Product Management Lloyd Klarke….

“On the Ultra you get an optical connector if you want to connect to stereos or sound bars.  You get a USB port if you want to play back files from a thumb drive.  And the remote on this one does even more.  It’s got a microphone if you want to do voice search.   But the one feature I really enjoy on the Ultra is the remote finder.  The Ultra has a button on the player that you press sends a beacon to your remote and your remote tells you where it’s at.”

Again the price is a reasonable 130 dollars.  Other new Roku models are available too…for as little as thirty dollars.  You can find us at BootCamp.com.   I’m Fred Fishkin.
