Roku Box Adds HD, Grows Beyond Netflix
12/24/2008

DeviceGuru writes "Roku has announced two free updates to its Internet-enabled Netflix movie-streaming set-top box. The initial update adds elderly compression capable of streaming HD video over average prospect broadband connections, while the second (expected during the first quarter of 2009) will add A/V streaming from sources other than Netflix (e.g. YouTube, Hulu, Comedy Central, MSNBC, etc.). Roku faces growing striving from other providers of Internet-based video-on-demand STBs, such as Blockbuster's STB, Syabas's Popcorn Hour (aka NMT), AppleTV, and others. Roku hasn't said all specific, but perhaps it'll partner with Boxee, which already provides a popular AppleTV hack."
