Roku today announced a new and updated lineup of streaming media devices.

"It is great for HDTV today and even better if they [consumers] decide to get a 4K TV tomorrow", Klarke says.

The Roku Premiere doesn't have all the bells and whistles of higher tier models. Roku even offers a "4K Spotlight Channel" to get things rolling, allowing users to gain easy access to 4K content. However, the release does clarify that only Rokus with voice capabilities will be able to use certain new Google Assistant-powered voice commands. That model will sell for $49.99. To continue building on that success, Roku has just this week unveiled two new devices sure to please the tech-obsessed crowd: the Roku Premiere and Roku Premiere+. In the Roku Premiere+, you'll find a Bluetooth remote, similar to what you'd find included in the Roku Ultra. The Premiere+ will also be available in October, but it can not be pre-ordered; it will be a Walmart exclusive. Consumers, however, are starting to look beyond the apps that come with the 4K TVs, and Roku is right here to address that need.

Brett Kavanaugh: Other accuser comes forward, Michael Avanetti third accuser, more
Kavanaugh has denied Ford's claim and that of another woman who has come forward with an allegation from his time at Yale. Trump said the Senate must confirm Kavanaugh to protect the integrity of judicial nominations.

With help from Google Assistant devices like the Google Home, you'll soon be able to pause and search for content and launch channels.

In addition to the two new devices, Roku is also updating its high-end Roku Ultra player.
