I'm also curious about this. Anyone know the differences between the new 2017 Ultra versus the Ultra released last year?
I'm interested also... it appears the new ultra is more or less like the 2016 Premier+ since they deleted the optical port. Would be interested in knowing if there were any chipset upgrades from last year, or they just renamed the Premier+
This is a very great point. If there is no upgrade in processor or memory over the '"first gen" Ultra, then this is just a cheesy re-branding exercise on the part of Roku. If such is the case, the removal of digital audio out is akin to paying for a "feature delete" option on a car. I see the Wikipedia entry for Roku has no info on the just announced lineup. In the absence of details, will just have to wait and see.
