Today Roku announced a new line of wireless speakers for Roku TVs. As TVs get smaller it forces the sound system in TVs to get smaller sacrificing sound quality. Now Roku is launching a set of wireless speakers designed to offer high-quality sound on Roku TVs.
These new speakers will also offer automatic volume leveling. Now the commercials will sound the same as your TV show. This has been a feature many streamers have been asking for since streaming started. No longer will different channels have different volume levels. The speakers will also come with a new remote for your Roku TV that will control the TV and the speakers from a single remote.
“Picture quality, a tremendous selection of content, value, and ease of use make Roku TVs some of the most popular smart TVs on the market today,” said Roku CEO Anthony Wood. “Adding great audio dramatically enhances the way people experience their favorite entertainment. With Roku TV Wireless Speakers, we’re able to offer our customers a simple and affordable way to further immerse themselves into the TV, movies and music they love, while providing them with a better whole home entertainment experience.”
These new speakers will not only connect wirelessly to your Roku TV, but they will also offer Bluetooth support for streaming from mobile devices, allowing you to listen to your music through your Roku speakers.
You will also be able to buy a Roku controller that will allow Roku owners to program quick access buttons to open any Roku Channel you want.
