Looking for faster access to Apple TV Plus on your Roku? You may want to get a new remote.
As part of a slew of updates on Tuesday -- including a new Voice Remote Pro, Express 4K Plus and Streambar Pro -- Roku made a small change across its remotes. Out is the dedicated shortcut key for Sling TV; in is a new button for Apple TV Plus.
Early versions of the Voice Remote Pro, which became available on Tuesday, may still have the Sling button instead of one for Apple's streaming service, but Roku tells CNET that it's in the process of transitioning the layout, which "will happen in the coming months." The Express 4K and Streambar ship in May, with images of the Streambar on Roku's website already featuring the updated button arrangement.
