Roku Shows Off Their First Player With Built-in OTA in Australia




For years many have asked Roku to build a streaming player with built-in support for over the air TV. You can already get this with Roku TVs that offere a great over the air TV experience that is about to get better with a new grid guide coming out in November. Sadly though Roku players had no option to integrate over the air TV without an additional device like a Tablo DVR.

Now Roku is showing off a new streaming player with built-in support for over the air TV. Not only is there support for over the air TV (OTA) the box also supports 4K HDR. For now, this device is currently licensed to Telstra an Australian pay TV provider.

Well, this is currently only available in Australia there is hope that it will roll out to new countries. “Our new 4K HDR hybrid streaming player is ideal for countries where over the air TV is available. It really brings together entertainment sources in a clever way, so consumers can watch live and on-demand entertainment with one single remote control,” Andrew Ferrone, vice president pay TV at Roku, said in a statement.

Hopefully, Roku brings this device to more countries soon.
