What just happened? Roku is bolstering its product catalog heading into the holidays with two new devices that offer 4K HDR streaming in stocking stuffer-sized form factor.

So, the Roku Premiere is priced at $39.99, making it the company's cheapest 4K-capable streamer so far. Instead of the rounded box of earlier media streamers, the Premiere is a small black plastic block a few inches long, created to be placed under or in front of your TV. It still gets Full HD, 4K, and 4K HDR support, however, and Roku even throws an HDMI cable in the box, which is more than most other streamers bother with.

The Roku Premiere+, meanwhile, takes the Premiere and builds on it with a new remote. They can plug into the headphone jack on the Roku Ultra's voice remote, for private listening. That's when the new Roku Ultra package will hit stores, too. Its price remains unchanged at $99.99.

And, finally, there are two new Roku devices on the way in October. The updated Roku Ultra will also be available around that time.

First up: Google Assistant is coming to Roku devices. The Roku OS 8.2 update for Roku TVs will add voice playback control for iHeartRadio, Pandora, and TuneIn. As of November, an update will allow you to change the lost remote finder sound to a number of different tones, including SportsCenter's DaDaDa from ESPN, or the theme song from HBO's Game of Thrones. It includes things like support for "speech clarity" and Spotify. Spotify will also be returning to Roku.

Roku OS 8.2 is now being rolled out to Roku TVs with full implementation planned for November.

Roku's new Premiere streaming player is available to pre-order from today and will be available to purchase at retail in early October along with the new Roku Ultra JBL bundle.
