Roku Premiere and Premiere+ review: You should consider only one

Roku Premiere and Premiere+ review: You should consider only one

Curated via Twitter from Mashable’s twitter account….

The Roku Channel Store is home to hundreds of apps, or channels as they are called here, including YouTube, Netflix, Hulu, ABC, NBC, or even Disney Now. (You won’t find a YouTube app on the Fire TV Stick, so it’s refreshing to see it here. ) Unlike other ecosystems which opt for a more closed-door experience, Roku encourages an open platform, meaning you’ll see some "indie" content providers.

The one major difference is that the Premiere+ comes with a microphone-equipped wireless remote control (and it’s also only sold at Walmart). At $39. 99 and $49. 99 respectively, the Premiere and Premiere+ are poised to compete directly with the similarly priced, Mashable Choice-winning Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K.

The Roku Premiere and Premiere+ are nearly identical 4K streaming devices.

A microphone at the top of the Premiere+ remote lets you access voice controls, but it’s limited to searching for content.
