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.

      We love it. It is farthest from our router and the roku 2 would buffer all the time. Also the interface is so much faster. With the app buttons on the remote Netflix can be up before the TV is on. Awesome!

      Service and delivery comments:

      We had a problem with our original one not updating. Abt replaced it no problems. Shipping time was good and all :)

            Looked for smart TV for my Internet needs but ended up with a great regular LED TV and added the Roku 3. I use the wireless setup. It's two floors from my modem. No problems - streams nicely. My Internet is min 25m.

                  This device turns a TV into an experience. I have watched lectures from Yale and other universities on the Lecture Kings channel, movies and tv show galore - all free on many Roku channels, and all with the ability to pause what I'm watching (to answer the phone, etc.) and then return to where I left off. ALL FREE!!!

                    Roku 3 can stream Netflix, Amazon Prime, Hulu, NFL Network, and more. In 2015 HBO-GO without a cable subscription will be available for purchase. A USB port allows it to be a media player for music or pictures. Device provides a great picture through WiFi or an Ethernet connection. Combine the Roku 3 with an over-the-air antenna and you can get out that abusive relationship with your cable provider.
