Hoping for a Roku 5 to succeed the Roku 4? You may be disappointed by this report.

According to ZatzNotFunny.com's correlation of an FCC leak against a Canadian computer sales website published Saturday, the streaming company could be debuting up to five streaming devices this fall that would add HDR picture capabilities and give each of the streamers a name instead of a number.

The entry-level Roku 1 would be instead replaced by the Roku Express and Roku Express Plus, both the Roku 2 and Roku 3 would be replaced by the Roku Premiere and Roku Premiere Plus and the 4K-capable Roku 4 would be replaced by a Roku Ultra device.

And for those with HDR television sets, the report alleges that the Roku Premiere Plus and Roku Ultra would both have support for the picture format.

Roku declined to comment on the report.
