Roku 4 Unboxing

3 Initial Observations About the New Roku 4:

  1. It is very large. So much so that you may need to rethink where you put it in your home entertainment center.
  2. The user experience is very fast and puts anything I have used including the new Fire TV 2 to shame.
  3. The new Roku OS 7 is very smooth and powerful. It feels like using a very well-made OS that is extremely stable. Unlike other new devices we have tested, the Roku 4 had no hang-ups or glitches we have found yet.

We will have a full review of the Roku 4 posted next week after we get some more time to play around with it.

Here are some highlights:

  • 2,500+ streaming channels. Choose from the biggest selection of streaming entertainment, including movies, TV shows, music, sports, news, international, kids programming and more.
  • Picture quality for 4K Ultra HD TVs, with 4X the resolution of full HD and the next generation of streaming technology.
  • Advanced up-scaling of 720p for HD TVs and 1080p HD streams to 4K Ultra HD on 4K TVs.
  • Voice search. Just say what you’re looking for into the enhanced remote and get fast and comprehensive search results by title, actor, or director.
  • The Roku Feed. Follow your favorite entertainment and always know where it’s ready to stream and at what price.

I have had the opportunity to test out a ton of great cord cutting services and devices. Hopefully, from all my reviews, news, and how to’s someone has saved a lot of money. At the end of the day my goal is to see as many people as possible leave “cable” behind and find the freedom and savings cord cutting can give them.
