A Plug-In Roku Uses New MHL Port

Roku is now available on fifteen platforms through the use of the new Roku Streaming Stick, which provides over 700 channels of content as an option to a number of TV manufacturer’s products through a new port Multimedia High Definition Link (MHL) port. ┬áIt’s been recognized as a great strategy for manufacturers to tap into a market leader’s offering through a plug-in adapter, without having to waste resources trying to develop their own particular flavor of Smart TV.

Conventional Roku set top boxes required HDMI access and separate power connection. This new stick allows you to dispense with those connections, and have the Roku controls kept with the controls from the TV. The familiar Roku interface remains the same, and the consumer is able to provide one time set up on WiFi for the Roku’s internet connection. Price class $100.
