Media streaming pioneer Roku has unveiled its 4th-gen media streaming player, featuring 4K resolution, 802.11ac WiFi, a larger footprint, and a $130 price. Over the years, we’ve watched Roku evolve from being one of the first companies to offer Internet radios with its SoundBridge, to challenging Apple’s early dominance in the streaming media player market with its “Netflix box”, to pioneering HDMI-stick media players with its Streaming Stick, to becoming the “smart” in smart TVs.
