It's autumn, the leaves are starting to fall, and Apple has launched a new Apple TV. Which means Roku can't be far behind with refreshing its range of streaming devices.
According to one report, the firm has a 4K HDR streaming stick up its sleeve, complete with a new universal remote.
4K has four times as many pixels as high definition, making for much sharper picture quality. HDR stands for high dynamic range – it's a technique that makes for greater differences between the light and dark parts of the image, with more gradual 'steps' in between. The result? A more lifelike image that has more depth.
This would be the first 4K HDR-capable streaming stick from Roku. At present, only its Premiere, Premiere+ and Ultra streaming boxes support 4K.
The new device is reportedly called the 4K HDR Roku Streaming Stick+.
Roku is cracking down on the pirates who use its devices to spread content illegally. According to a recent job posting, it's hiring a director of anti-piracy and content security. The post involves "overseeing implementation of anti-piracy and content security initiatives at Roku."
The firm also recently started sending warning messages to anyone trying to add illegal streams to their box.
