Very nice, I need to replace my aging 2xs. It reboots a lot while watching sling. I don't have 4k but I like the top of line model with the remote finder and hopefully a usb port. I still use flash drives with movies on them. If price is around the $100 mark I think I will get one.

I'm assuming these will be all over Black Friday sales this year.
I picked up the Black Friday SE Edition last year for $24...

Indeed it does look interesting. Although I am quite happy with my Roku 3, I am in consideration of possibly buying one of the new line players for another room in my house upon it's release, but I haven't made up my mind yet. What I do find interesting about the new product line is some of the stuff I have read over the last couple of days on other websites seem to suggest that a redesigned UI and apps respective UI's being redesigned might be in the works.  Hopefully, whatever is being cooked up to serve to consumers will be as simplistic and easy to use as the current and previous generation of product have been. Could not be happier with my Roku and my previous (Not in use) Roku LT, been an enjoyable almost five years. Have no reason to think that Roku is going to diminish in quality. I'm on record on this forum saying other competing devices are nice, but all of them have work to do to catch up with Roku in terms of overall section, ease of use and value. The closest thing I have seen in my testing of various devices that could give Roku a run is Amazon Fire TV, but as solid as Fire TV is, it doesn't have as deep a selection of available apps/services as Roku and really offers nothing for those of us who buy ultraviolet movies.  Solid as a secondary streaming device, but I don't think I would use it as a primary though I do go back and forth between devices for a day or two at a time so it's basically the best of both worlds. It's only a matter of time before a big electronic developer tries to compete. I am a fan of Sony's products in particular, but I don't see anyone being able to really launch a device that offers everything Roku does with as easy to use software/interface as Roku has. Just one man's opinion.

Just in case anyone's missed it, here is the Roku lineup for 2016, and possible 2017, 2018 as well, until stocks run out then its now Tv or nothing, well apart from the latest boxes form the likes of Amazon

The Roku Stick £39.99 (US$37.22)

[img=437x243]https://d2dbvbmwstiyvc.cloudfront.net/s/1481330551166/products_streaming-stick/rss-uk-in-the-box-f9257c65a2f762f2598a7fa0b9ddff79.jpg[/img]
The Roku 2, just £59.99 ( thats US $74.50 )
[img=424x340]https://d2dbvbmwstiyvc.cloudfront.net/s/1481330551166/products_roku-2/r2-uk-in-the-box-45707850cf709d6f9a0ed1761612157b.jpg[/img]
And the Roku 3, just £79.99 (US$99.29)
which amongst other things Roku states "With our fastest processor ever, the Roku 3 makes streaming look simple."
[img=430x345]https://d2dbvbmwstiyvc.cloudfront.net/s/1481330551166/products_roku-3/r3-uk-in-the-box-4cebd93568cc5536e2dec459bc63fd4b.jpg[/img]
As for 4K streaming there are these options, as Roku has no 4K devices and lets face it, the above devices are a little long in the tooth ( if the Roku 3 has Rokus fastest processor yet, then what have they been doing for the last few years?) these are your options - note as Roku does not compete in the  4k streaming player market none of these options are a competitor to Roku:

Amazon Fire TV, the only thing that Roku offers over this is Now TV, if Now Tv was available on Fire TV, ofr if you didnt really use Now Tv then there would be no point in a Roku
cost £75 (US$93)

Chromecast Ultra, £69.99 (US$86.90)
