Roku comes to Best Buy through XD model

Roku made one of its biggest pushes into retail on Wednesday and landed a key deal with Best Buy. The big-box stores will carry the mid-range Roku XD both in retail and online. The move represents the first time one of the company's networked media hubs is available at stores across the US without a forced rebranding.

The XD can play 1080p video, supports 802.11n Wi-Fi and has a remote with the instant replay button. Compared to the XDS, it lacks the dual-band Wi-Fi, component video out and USB. Either can show Amazon Video, Hulu Plus, Netflix, as well as live sports from the MLB and NHL. They can also tune into Internet radio and on-demand content from MOG, MP3tunes, Pandora, and Rdio.

Best Buy stores should be carrying the Roku XD today and are charging the same $80 as Roku does online.
