Roku's new product line: it's as simple as 1, 2, 3
 
To say that today's a big day for Roku is a bit of an understatement. Not only is the company revamping its entire product lineup, there's also the small matter of the UK launch of the Roku 3 to consider. 
 
Whereas before, American users had to decide between the LT, HD, 2XD and 3, the company has now adopted a much simpler device lineup: Okay, Good, Better and Best. So, is this the move that'll push the company out of the fringes of the mainstream and into the spotlight? It's certainly going to help.

Yes. The Roku players have supported both services since shortly after Roku's inception. I remember when these were the only channels available on my original Roku player, back in 2008/2009. Nowadays there are many, many channels available for the Roku.
