First Look: First Look: Roku TV

Roku brings their user interface and unmatched library of streaming channels to new TV sets from TCL and Hisense for 2014.

Hey, guys. Brian Tong here for CES 2014 and were here at Roku's headquarters and behind me you see two TVs. Now we know Roku's player, the Roku 3 Box-- I mean amazing platform. Now they're bringing that platform and UI to two new TVs, one from TCL and one from Hisense. These are gonna come in variety of models but this is really their push to marry the UI with TV sets that are also making a big push in the US. Now one of the cool things here right you see the familiar Roku UI and you'll see all the channels that you're familiar with. You have NeFlix, Hulu, Pandora. One channel that you may not be familiar with that is here, the official right, the YouTube channel. From earlier, you know, at the end of December that is also in the box. This is a big deal for Roku fans. Now, also one of the cool things that they've done with this TV is really make it easy to access your inputs. We don't think about TVs as inputs anymore here. You'll see you have cable, your game box or your blu-ray player. They wanna make that really a seamless transition and they've also thrown some cool bells and whistles in here like the sleep timer. A lot of times you go to sleep. Your TV shuts right off. Here you get this kind of nice gentle fade. Now we know about Roku's remote that has that really cool headphone jack in there that's gonna be up to the manufacturers to decide if they want to integrate that into the product but you'll see here behind me the TV sets ranging in sizes from 32 inches to 55 inches. There are no pricing details yet and also Roku is playing to work with other manufacturers. But right now TCL and Hisense are the first two partners. But there you go your first look at the Roku TV here at CES 2014.
