New images of the Roku 4 show it will support an Optical Audio out, something that has been missing from recent Roku models. It will also help the Roku stand out from the Fire TV which has removed the Optical Audio port on their new boxes. In a market that is increasingly about check box features this could help the Roku stand out from its competition.
What we know about the Roku 4:
- Will support 4k video
- New reset button on the bottom
- Quad-core Processor
- New Quick Buttons
Here are the Roku 4 Specs:
Well a lot is still not know about the Roku 4 we are expecting the Roku 4 to be announced in the next few days.
Now for some of the rumors still floating around:
The Roku 4 looks to be a lot bigger than the Roku 3:
The Roku 4 will have a sleep timer:
We also believe the new Rokus will come with a software update that will bring the much desired sleep timer to the Roku boxes. This information comes from an Ask Me Anything (AMA) we hosted with Anthony Wood the creator of the Roku earlier this year.
During the AMA Anthony responded to a question about a sleep timer by saying. “Wow, I can’t believe this is the first question! We have that feature on Roku TV and it’s a very popular feature. It’s a great idea to add it to our players and sticks.”
Since the software is already programmed into the Roku TVs we would be surprised if the new Roku boxes does not support a sleep timer that will stop any stream after a set time.
