Roku has released version 4.7 of its software for its HD, LT, and 2 series of media streamers, offering a range of improvements under the hood.
Roku has started pushing its v4.3 firmware update out to all Roku 2 and Roku LT players. The update brings improved Netflix performance, among other fixes.
A new Roku HD player has shown up at the FCC, and it looks to be a replacement for the Roku 2 HD. Changes include the removal of the microSD slot, a purple base, and full composite output.
Roku Version 4.2 software update adds MKV playback and support for an official iPhone app which is coming soon to the iTunes store, followed by an Android version.
Roku is offering its Roku 2 HD streamer this weekend for 20 percent off the normal price of $59.99.
Roku media streamers will be on sale in the UK and Canada in early 2012
