Roku has the worst naming system. New Express and Express Plus? Are they different than the old Express? Streaming Stick Plus? Is this the same Roku Ultra or a new one? It's stupid.

well, I'm interested in the new remote. I'd get the hd, don't need 4k yet. however, I'm waiting for the Amazon Cube tv, maybe it'll launch around the same dates.

Who cares about new hardware? Roku has been screwing up their software for at least the last 8 months with mandatory updates that break system functionality, usually in 4k or HDR or both. We gave up and went to the Nvidia Shield, which is more expensive, but a WAY BETTER product.

New express version has quad-core processor, which is lacking in current/old version I believe. Processor updates to express and express plus as of that.

The remote is getting voice control, with power and volume buttons to control it on TV.

Streaming Stick Plus supports HDR and 4K Ultra HD

Agreed. Miracast was working perfectly. Lately, Miracast intermitently no audio. Ran Driver Update Utility, not no joy.

Lineup became cheaper? Hard to determine whats different between last gen and current gen. Feel like they just needed to rehash what they already released to help with their recent IPO.

I currently have a Roku Ultra and it's not clear to me if the new Ultra is substantially different. It seems they just dropped the price and it has a new remote. Anyone?

Not so sure about refreshed Ultra, other than remote and wireless performance(!). Not sure if there is Dolby Vision support added.

I just got a Streaming Stick for $28 yesterday. It is factory refurbished and it does look new. The remote is new. Worth every penny, I think.

Should I return it and get the latest?

Where is the power button on the remote? I see the new one have it but not the old.

What are other website where I can see all the channel on one list? I want to search for News by city. Who knows what WGN belongs to what city? This is the info I need.
