Now here is our quick over view of the new Roku stick 3600:
The new Roku Stick is noticeably smaller than the Fire TV and older Roku sticks. However, it was the fastest stick we have ever tested—by far. The black matted look matches many TVs, making it blend into whatever TV you attach it to.
The remote has quick buttons for Sling TV, Netflix, Amazon Video, and Google Play—unless you buy it from Walmart, then the remote has a Vudu quick button instead of the Google Play button.
802.11 (a/b/g/n compatible) with WEP, WPA, and WPA2 support
Digital stereo over HDMI®, DTS Digital Surround™ pass through over HDMI®
Point-anywhere RF remote with channel shortcut buttons
Less than 3W (typical) when streaming HD video
5.0V–1.5A USB power adapter
.5 × 3.3 × .8 inches
Private listening comes to the new Roku Stick through the new Roku App. If you have a new Roku Stick you will be able to use your phone to connect a Bluetooth headset or use the headset jack on your phone.
You can preorder the new Roku Stick 3600 on Amazon.com.
The new Roku Stick is faster, more powerful than anything on the market today, and it should be a must own for any Roku fan. Now you can get the performance of a set-top box with the convenience and portability of a stick.
