Language support for German and Spanish also included

Roku is now pushing out a software update for its set-top box line. The update to version 4.8 brings performance optimizations to the Roku 2, Roku LT and Roku HD players, along with some additions to help developers for the system. Hints of more channels and features, as well as an upgrade to the Roku iOS and Android apps, are also mentioned on the Roku blog.

Video playback has been improved in the update, with claimed improvements for the MLB.TV and GBTV channels. Language support has also been expanded to include Spanish and German to the user interface. Roku developers will see support for PlayReady 2.0, an extended list screen and Roku 2D API features, and increased theme attribute support on screen templates.

Roku 2 and Roku LT owners will see the update pushed automatically, with the Roku HD receiving it a few days later. Those wishing to skip the wait can run the updates from the settings menu.
