    We try hard to keep making Roku players better and better for our customers through regular software updates. Our original player only supported Netflix, and now those same players have well over 300 channels. Another aspect of our upgrade philosophy is to provide frequent, steady improvements, as opposed to large yearly upgrades.

    Today, we are releasing a software update to Roku 2 and Roku LT players—version 4.2, build 1006—that continues the evolution of the Roku platform.

    In this release, we focused on several improvements and enhancements:

    Support for more games – Added improvements to the 3D game experience on Roku 2. The first games to take advantages of these improvements—Downhill Bowling 2, Castle Warriors and Frisbee Forever—will be available in the Roku Channel Store shortly and are designed to work with the Game Remote.

    Mobile support – Added enhancements to support an official Roku iPhone app that will be in the iTunes App Store soon. Followed by Android for our non-iOS loving friends.

    MKV playback support – If you have a Roku 2 XS, you can use the USB Media Player channel to play MKV movie files from USB drives. Also, MP4 video playback has improved.

    Did you write this or is it a quote from a press release or other Roku source? If the latter, kindly indicate so.
