Roku has partnered with Austrailian TV provider Telstra to launch a new 4k capable box that also provides users with an OTA tuner for free over the air television. The device features a live TV option on the menu with a program grid. The device does not include the full expansive Roku channel store but does feature some heavy hitter apps like Netflix and services aimed at the local market.
We can only hope that Roku will one day release such a product in the US. Check out the preview video to see more.
