For some time now Roku has stopped supporting Roku players built in 2011 and before. This week Roku announced that they are ending support for the Roku LT streaming player that was released in 2013.
This news comes as Roku has recently ended support for older Roku players like the first gen Roku 2 and Roku 1—both released in 2013.
If you own an affected Roku player, your device will continue to work but you will no longer get new apps or features. So, you can continue to use your older Roku player, but you run the risk of the streaming service ending support for it. We recently saw Netflix end support for first generation Roku streaming players.
The good news is right now Roku has several streaming players on sale. You can find the most recent Roku deals on Roku’s Amazon page HERE. Not only will a new Roku offer continued support but features and apps your older Roku does not current offer.
