About The New Roku Ultra:
The New Roku Ultra will come with an enhanced quad-core process, 802.11ac dual-band wireless, and most importantly it will come with more internal memory. Roku says the new Roku Ultra will launch the top 100 Roku channels 17% faster and when using services like Sling TV, Hulu, YouTube TV, etc it will make loading channels 33% faster.
Roku has also added two programmable quick launch buttons to the Roku Ultra remote. Now you can program these buttons to launch your favorite Roku Channel or to auto-execute any voice command you want.
About The New Roku Express
The Roku Express is getting a new smaller form but will still offer the same performance as the current Roku Express. Roku also says the new Roku Express uses less power, meaning you will be able to power it through the USB port on your TV to reduce cable clutter. (Some exceptions may apply but Roku says most TVs now will be able to power the new Roku Express through the USB Port.) This also means the new Roku Express will be more friendly on your budget as it will help lower your power bills.
Note the Roku Express+ sold at Walmart will no longer include the RCA cables for older Roku TVs. Roku says they will still the older Roku Express with the RCA for non-HD TVs on its website for anyone who needs a Roku player with RCA cables.
Other new models like the Roku Express+ and the Roku Ultra LT are Walmart Exclusives. The Roku Stick+ HE will be a Best Buy exclusive.
