Roku refreshed its entire streaming device lineup today, updating devices with better processors and other improvements.

The company is also rolling out Roku OS 8 to all of the new devices and many older ones. OS 8 adds search and voice control features and brings the over-the-air and over-the-top viewing and searching experiences closer together.
The new devices include the Roku Express, the Roku Express+, the Roku Streaming Stick, the Roku Streaming Stick+, and the Roku Extreme.

All were extant products that have simply been refreshed.

Gone are the Roku Premiere and Roku Premiere+, which sat in the middle of Roku’s lineup last year.

The Roku Streaming Stick+ effectively fills the gap.
The Roku Express and Express+ retail at $29.99 and $39.99.

The former is still the same old device, but with a chipset that Roku says is five times faster than what we saw in 2016’s model.

The Roku Express+ offers composite cable connections for older TVs, in addition to HDMI.
It is available at retail exclusively at Walmart.
