    Default Roku Streaming Stick™ Unveiled

    On the DTVUSAforum NEWS page:

    Today we unveiled the Roku Streaming Stick™—a little stick about the size of a standard USB flash drive that will simply plug into a TV to instantly transform it into a Smart TV. It essentially includes everything in a Roku player—built-in WiFi, processor, memory and software—and will deliver all the channels found on the Roku platform today. It will also benefit from regular free software updates and channel enhancements.

    That's what folks want, and the smaller the better.

    The current generation of Roku boxes is tiny by any standards, and they are compatible with any TV.

    The advantage of the new stick is it allows integration of Roku directly to your TV, and allows you to use just a single remote control.

    Disadvantage?
    The Roku Streaming Stick will plug into MHL-enabled HDMI ports on TVs. MHL is a new standard that uses the HDMI connector on TVs to deliver power and other critical elements for the streaming experience. There are already TVs with MHL from Samsung and Toshiba,
    Therefore, it doesn't work on "ANY TV", just those that have an MHL-enabled HDMI port. That means, only SOME brand new TV sets!
