Today Cord Cutters News received a copy of a message that was sent from Roku to developers with more details about the new Roku OS.
This message was sent to Roku developers today.
OS 7.5 begins shipping to consumer Roku devices tomorrow, and will continue rolling out in phases over the next six weeks. We’ve just updated most devices registered in the Roku Beta Developer Program to OS 7.5.0 Version #4092, which is the version being shipped to consumers tomorrow.
Roku Express, Premiere, and Ultra devices are the only exception to this build number. These beta devices are currently running OS 7.5.1 Version #4022. Note that these will be the last consumer Roku devices to update to 7.5 and firmware for these products is still in beta development. Thank you for your contributions in refining this latest Roku firmware update!
The fact that Roku is offering a beta developer program likely points to a major OS update. If you want to be part of this program, you must sign a confidentiality agreement. Typically Roku just gives the beta of the new OS to developers without any restrictions.
We will update this story tomorrow as we learn more about this new Roku OS.
