Review: Roku 4 Our First Look

We are giving away a Roku 4! Click HERE to find out how you could win a Roku 4.

The Roku 4 is here and it is a very powerful streaming box. There is a noticeable improvement in the speed of apps like Netflix and other apps like Sling TV that are known for sluggish performance on the Roku now work smoothly.

The setup was easy but dose require a browser to finish. Unlike the Fire TV 2 the Roku 4 remembers what apps you had installed on your old Roku and will automatically install them for you. As they are installing you can even link several accounts allowing them to be used as soon as they are installed.

Please note this is only our first impressions after a short test. We will have a more in depth review posted early next week after we have more time to test it out. Please watch the YouTube video at the top of this post for our full review.
