Roku's New Streaming Stick Costs $100

Illustration for article titled Roku's New Streaming Stick Costs $100

The new Roku stick—which was announced earlier this year—has finally got a price: $100. It's going to be available on Amazon and Roku in October and other retailers during the Fall.


Remember, in order to use the new Roku Stick, you'll need a special HDMI port called 'MHL'. Roku has a few TVs that are certified Roku Ready (think of it as those official Made for iPhone stickers on accessories) but any MHL HDMI port is totally fine. Just plug in the Roku Stick and it'll present you with the same old Roku menu and streaming selections you're used to from the old Roku black puck.

Roku's also announcing that it's launching a VUDU channel to its over 600 channels of content and a new Roku app that allows users to stream photos and music to any Roku streaming player with 'Play on Roku'. With more features constantly being added to Roku, Roku is very possibly the best streaming player you can buy. [Roku]
