Product Details

Roku 3 Black Streaming Media Player, Model 4200R

Fastest, Most Responsive Roku Ever

Once again, Roku redefines in-home content streaming with the Roku 3 Streaming Media Player. Improving on the already successful Roku 2 XS, the Roku 3 sports an all new user-interface which includes one-stop search, for a quicker, easier viewing experience. Jump directly to the movie or TV show you want, across a library of channels, right from the home screen.

New to the Roku 3 is a dual-band wireless system, compatible with Wi-Fi a/b/g/n, which gives you twice the bandwidth for streaming and decreases playback issues caused by packet loss or network delays. That extra network go-juice will help you stream content at up to Full HD 1080p resolution to any HDMI-compatible HDTV.

More Entertainment Options Than Ever

Many know Roku media players primarily as Netflix streaming devices. And while Roku players have always been the best way to get Netflix onto your TV, they also offer a wealth of other streaming content. The Roku 3 expands on the existing selection, now giving users access to over 750 entertainment channels. Watch new video releases on Amazon Instant video, a documentary on Netflix or a comedy special on HBO GO. Find instructional cooking videos, aerobics classes or local programming from Italy. Listen to an Oldies station on Pandora, or your favorite playlist on Spotify. If you'd prefer more active entertainment, head to the app store and pick out a game like Angry Birds, and play it with the motion-sensitive remote control. With the new Roku 3, your entertainment sources are nearly unlimited.

For those who like to use their Roku 3 when others are trying to sleep, built into the remote is a headphone jack; simply plug in the included earbuds and stream away without disturbing anyone else. Free iOS and Android apps give you the ability to control your Roku 3 with your smartphone, or transfer content from your phone to your HDTV. The USB port gives you yet another way to share your personal media, and the onboard MicroSD slot lets you add extra storage. With such a wealth of options in such an unassuming package, it's time you made the Roku 3 the hub of all of your multimedia entertainment.

I started out with Roku 1 over 3 years ago just to cut cable/dish prices. With an antenna we were pretty happy--but on a lot of channels we did not get without a lot of interruption. Over a year ago we switched over to Roku 3. LOVED IT. Very few problems if any...unless internet connection was sluggish. We upgraded our tv to a "smart" one and tried roku on that but decided to go back to the box---we liked it much better. The box works on Wi-Fi but we get a much better reception and NO interruption if we plug it directly in. We do get lots of channels and yes we had to decide what was important--saving money or certain tv programs--we chose money. We did opt into Netflix for movies but that cost a month is /was still cheaper than what we paid at direct-tv. I do suggest that if you go and cut the cord completely - get an antenna. We have internet 99% but it always seems that when and IF it goes out --is always when you are in the mood to relax and watch a bit of tv.

I purchased a tv for my mother who is starting to have memory problems. When you turn on the tv, you have to choose which input every time. Every time. Even when the power goes out for a second. I traded her my tv so she could watch it. If someone is having memory issues, this tv is not for them. I called Roku and even though I have a tv, I still have to get internet and a cable provider to get the specific channels I want. What is the purpose of paying for the roku and the internet and the satellite/cable. Just eliminate one bill, Roku

Watch out ... it's a RIPOFF.


from USA

Comments about Roku 3 Black Streaming Media Player:

Buyer BEWARE!!! I have 3 players(stick;Roku 2; Roku 3). Never had problem with products without voice search. With voice search .. TERRIBLE! Voice search works maybe 20% of the time ... MAYBE. Worst part is player and remote for Roku3 work for a short time and then your screwed. Yes, I read all the support info and kept pairing the remote ... over and over. I did all the gymnastics. Remove and replace the batteries. Replace with new batteries. Press the button. Press A & B buttons. Press all 3 buttons. Don't use it for a couple of hours and keep powercycling until pairing option shows up on screen ... Etc. Finally had to call support. Ends up being some guy in India making me press all the buttons and powercycling ... Again. You can tell he is reading from a script. Finally he tells me I need a new remote. I've worked in tech field over 15 years. This product is not rocket science ... neither is the support. Since it was so soon I got it free. That lasted a couple months and it all started all over again. What a useless waste of time ... I have lost days of my life I can't get back. And why? Because they put out a product they must have known was LOUSY during test trials but sold it anyway. Funny thing, Roku2 remote is different because no voice feature. Never had a problem with Roku2. These new Rokus... same remote as Roku3 ... voice feature. All this NONSENSE GARBAGE starts at the top ... CEO. He is Getting richer selling novelty feature ... Voice search. Save yourselves a lot of time and grief ... BUY SOMETHING ELSE THAT actually WORKS. I should have saved my money and not bought unit with voice search remote. Too late. Plus, I can't see this company actually doing right by a customer. I will say one thing, the Roku3 Piece of TRASH is not designed aerodynamically ... but it flew across the room surprisingly well. Don't say I didn't try to help you by warning you.

Comments about Roku 3 Black Streaming Media Player:

Seems to freeze up, my smart TV box doesn't. Don't like the placement of "OK" button. Would rather have it in the center of direction buttons


Roku rocks


from Cherry Hill, NJ, United States

Comments about Roku 3 Black Streaming Media Player:

My first brush with Roku happened after the purchase of a TV made by Sharp. This one has the Roku device integrated. I immediately loved all about it. This is streaming like it's meant to be. The remote has few buttons and is easy to use. My wife and I have since purchased 2 more Roku units for the other TV's in our house. They all perform great. Unlike some other reviewers, I did not have any issues with the remote controls eating batteries like there is no tomorrow.

The worst Remote Control device ever used


from Miami, Fl

Comments about Roku 3 Black Streaming Media Player:

The worst remote control device I have ever used, including going back into the 1960's. Not very happy with the cost of this device, and I average hitting the keys on the remote 10 - 15 times before it does anything. This is day one, with brand new batteries.


tv the way it should be


from indiana

Comments about Roku 3 Black Streaming Media Player:

I like it much better than cable or satellite. I had internet but not many tv options. What I like is it makes it is easy to use my antenna the and pay tv to get all that I need. It is practical. I would like a little more al carte though.

As compared to Apple TV


from Atlanta, GA, United States

Comments about Roku 3 Black Streaming Media Player:

I really do like the ability to plug in headphones but other than that, I should have spent the extra money to get the latest generation apple TV. not as user friendly as the apple product and going through menu a little more complicated...It works fine but...

Worst. Remote. Ever.


from Los Angeles, CA, United States

Comments about Roku 3 Black Streaming Media Player:

Honest review: The roku itself is great, no real complaints when it comes to the hockey puck. HOWEVER, whoever designed this remote clearly had no intention of using it themselves and/or just hates people in general. For starters, it eats batteries like crazy. You will either have to purchase rechargeable batteries or keep shelling out for new ones often. So much so that you'll basically end up paying more far more for batteries than whatever you pay for the roku itself. From the research I've done this is a widespread problem with many owners and NOTHING has been done by Roku the company to alleviate this problem. The gyroscope/accelerometer included is great for games, but will use up energy even at the slightest tilt. So if you fall asleep with the remote on your bed, yeah kiss that pair of batteries goodbye. Then there's the headphone jack. Great idea, not gonna lie it is quite useful. However, leaving the headphones plugged in also eats up battery life tremendously. So again, fall asleep or forget to unplug the headphones...and BAM yet another pair of batteries gone. Suddenly you get the drift as to how insanely awful and expensive this remote can be. Lastly, nothing to do with batteries, but the four Quick Access buttons. Another great idea. Again, very handy. However, one of them is for the now-defunct Rdio music service. So am I able to reprogram this button for quick access to another roku channel?? NERP! Why would anyone think that far ahead when designing this? That's just crazy talk! In conclusion, the remote has a ton of features that were likely well-intended, but extremely poorly thought-out and poorly designed and implemented. If there's such a thing as a smart remote, this would be the opposite of it. It is truly wondrous what an enormously epic fail this was. Seriously, bravo to the designers for making something so god-awful it will live in infamy forever. I can just see it now, Me: "Hey man, I know you got fired from your job, dumped by your girl, hit by a car, and are now blind and paralyzed...but at least you don't have to deal with a Roku remote." Friend: "True story. Thanks, bruh for cheering me up!"
