Finally! :)

Actually love how the categories are each in a row and you scroll horizontally through it. Very iPad-ish.

Also, great UI touch having the summary bubble in the bottom right so you don't have to click through.

Overall, glad to see that if we had to wait this long for a UI refresh that it was at least well-designed and well-though out.

Kudos, Roku.

I like the browse feature, deciding what to watch is half the fun.8)

Saw this note from the Roku Twitter account.

Anyone have an idea when this will roll out?

FINALLY :)

I stopped using it for Netflix because the old interface was so dated.

Thanks. Surprised they published the functionality if they're going to roll it out a month, or so, in the future. Normally you only do a publicity blitz when you're ready to roll.

Looking at it.... Looks like each Genre has 50 titles. The action Genre in the video shows 50. While my Wii shows 100? Other UI's have 100 per Genre. Hrmm.... Odd....

Maybe they want to hear what we think of this new UI? What we like & what we don't perhaps?

Think Roku has to add it to the SDK first?

One question... Since we will now be able to browse and view on the fly, will we still need free space in our queues when we find one we want to watch now? Or can we just watch it and not "add" it first through the new interface? Some of us are constantly flirting with the magic 500.
