New device has motion sensitive remote with headphones

Today, Roku is launching its fastest media streamer to date. Benchmarked by the company at over five times faster than previous players, the new Roku 3 streamer boasts wide connectivity, a new user interface, a remote with a headphone jack for private listening, and an updated Roku Channel store.

The Roku 3 enhanced remote features a built-in headphone jack for private listening with the included in-ear headphones. Volume buttons on the remote control audio while private listening mode is in use. Additionally, the remote doubles as a motion-sensing game controller for gameplay. Roku's free app for iOS and Android allow mobile devices to be used as a controller for the streaming box.

Roku 3 comes pre-loaded with more than 750 channels of entertainment, 1080p HD support, dual-band 802.11n wireless, 10/100 Ethernet, USB ports, and a microSD slot. Recently launched channels on the Roku platform include TWC TV, BlockBuster On Demand and iHeartRadio. Other channels launching soon include FOX NOW, PBS and PBS KIDS.

The Roku 3 is available now for $100 in the US through Roku.com, Amazon and several other online retailers. It will be available at major retail chains beginning in April.
