Today, Roku is announcing a software update that will allow Roku Smart Soundbar users to expand their sound systems. The company is also expanding their onn. product line in partnership with Walmart, adding onn. Roku Wireless Surround Speakers.
Roku is making it easy for consumers to design and expand their home theater setup. Use the Roku Smart Soundbar to bring premium sound quality to your viewing experience, with a Roku streaming player built-in and an included remote to simplify your setup. With the update, the Roku Smart Soundbar will have surround sound capability, allowing users to pair the sound bar to speakers for a fully immersive experience.
“We want to simplify home theater the same way we simplified streaming and we’re taking a big step towards that vision by expanding our Roku Smart Sound bars to support surround sound capabilities,” said Mark Ely, Vice President, Retail Product Strategy at Roku.“ We want customers to be able to expand their system over time without having to spend a lot of money or run wires throughout the home. The Roku Smart Soundbar is an incredible two-in-one device that adds exceptional sound and powerful streaming to a TV and when Roku TV Wireless Speakers and a Roku Wireless Subwoofer are paired with the Smart Soundbar you get truly enveloping surround sound without breaking the bank.”“Customers are responding well to our onn. brand, which includes a Roku Smart Soundbar and subwoofer, because they love the quality and value of onn. products,” says Ryan Peterson, vice president of consumer electronics for Walmart. “Roku is known for their quality and affordability as well, and we’re looking forward to offering our customers a premium surround sound experience with the new onn. Roku Wireless Surround Speakers to add to their onn. Roku Smart Soundbar.”
Roku Surround Sound capability will be available as a Roku OS software update for all Roku Smart Soundbars and will begin rolling out to devices in February.
The onn. Roku Wireless Surround Speakers will be available for $149 in Walmart stores and online at Walmart.com mid-February to pair to the onn. Roku Smart Soundbar and onn. Roku Wireless Subwoofer.
