The Roku 3 continues prove its the king of the streaming machines. The latest version replaces the XS model with a faster processor and a new remote that includes headphones, so users can listen to shows in private without bothering others in the room. It also has a new interface that makes it easier to scroll through channels. Current Roku owners will also see the new menu in April.
The Roku goes beyond simply streaming videos on demand -- it also can tune into live TV channels with a new app for Time Warner Cable customers. If you have Time Warner, the Roku lets you save money and ditch the cable box for your secondary televisions (that is, unless you need that channel guide.) Lets hope other television providers come out with similar apps.
