  • Roku TV Wireless Speakers

The company also has some first party plans for Roku Connect, announcing a pair of wireless speakers compatible with Roku TVs today. It also developed the new Roku Touch tabletop voice remote that some users may find more useful and less intrusive than Amazon's Alexa.

With the wireless speakers, the hassle of wires, receivers, and a million remote controls disappears. So, any TV powered by the Roku operating system will benefit from the enhanced audio provided by the bundle. Included is a simple point-anywhere remote control that works with both devices. The speakers will ship with a Roku Voice Remote, as well as a new Touch controller, which is meant to sit on your coffee table and offer quick access to common features, like volume controls, video playable and voice commands. Once the speakers have been paired to your TV, you can use them to stream audio from a multitude of source, whether that's a set-top box from your cable company or any of Roku's streaming channels. The deal should go live on Roku's site soon.
