The new streaming player can instantly switch audio to the headphones while muting your TV speakers.
Roku has introduced a new streaming player with an enhanced remote that has a built-in headphone jack for private listening. The Roku 3 is a fast and powerful system. The remote’s integrated jack makes it easy for users to enjoy TV anytime.
When the included in-ear headphones are inserted into the remote, only the person wearing them can hear the on-screen action. Roku 3 instantly switches audio to the headphones while muting the TV speakers.
This allows a person to watch their favorite TV show without interrupting anyone else and brings the experience of personal viewing we’re used to on computers and mobile phones to a larger screen.
The Roku 3 is available now for $99.99 in the U.S. on Roku.com, Amazon.com and other online retailers. It will be available at major retail chains from April on. Check out the video below to take a look at the streaming player and its revolutionary remote:
