Roku TV - Worth It?

The American company Roku is very popular due to its high-tech equipment with which users get access to Internet TV.

There are many devices in the company’s product line, one of which is TVs with an integrated Roku system. In this case, there is no need to purchase additional equipment. Everything is pre-installed and viewers get direct access to Internet TV.

Roku TV is popular in the United States of America. For example, every third American TV viewer uses the equipment of this particular company.

 Although these Roku TVs are usually entry-level, they have an effective and attractive design and 4K resolution. The TVs run Roku OS and support HDR10+, Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos.

Roku TVs are also compatible with Apple HomeKit, Alexa, and Google Home. Thus, you can control them from your smartphone or by voice if you have a device that supports this function. In addition, TVs support AirPlay 2, which is responsible for streaming content directly from your iPhone, iPad or Mac.

In addition to Echo devices, Alexa can also be used on Roku TVs. The app allows users to activate the Amazon virtual assistant to perform tasks such as playing music, setting reminders and managing smart devices, and choosing their favorite movies or TV series. After installing and setting up the TV, you can “wake up” the assistant with the “Alexa” command and request a number of tasks, such as checking the calendar, informing the weather forecast, creating reminders and much more.

The latest TVs have additional features: the devices have ALLM (automatic low latency mode). The function is present in the main consoles on the market and reduces the display time of the image on the screen after the command.

There are four HDMI ports on the back of the Roku OS TV, one of which is eARC, which the company promises to offer more bandwidth for the most complex audio formats and two-way communication. Finally, almost all Roku TVs have dual-band Wi-Fi.

Roku OS 11.5 makes it easy to find movies and TV shows. This operating system update is a recent release and has not yet been fully tested and accepted by all users. The highlight of the system are the search results. When searching for a movie or series, users will be able to see images of each one, making it easier to find content, the company says.

In addition, the cover pages now have a redesigned layout. There’s a new “Save” button and a list of places to find the movie or series the user wants to watch. It’s worth noting that the page will also tell you if the title is paid or free.

With Roku OS TVs, you can also use the private listening mode, which will make watching your favorite movies more comfortable, because you will not disturb your family members if, for example, you watch a TV program at night.

The update also promises to improve the audio output of devices, and for those who prefer to watch with headphones, Roku OS 11.5 will intelligently adjust audio and video sync based on the type of Bluetooth headset connected.
