As always, the Roku team has been hard at work improving the streaming experience on the Roku platform. In that spirit, we’ve released Roku software 4.9 build 5060 for Roku 2, Roku LT and new Roku HD players.
For users, we fixed a number of bugs and improved platform stability. We also made several behind the scenes improvements to enable some exciting upcoming channels.
For developers, we added support for in-app subscriptions. Additionally, we enabled the ability to display closed captioning for any developer who adds SMPTE Timed Text closed captioning to their MP4, Smooth Streaming or HLS video streams.
The update will be pushed automatically to all Roku 2, Roku LT and new Roku HD (model 2500) players over the next 48 hours and Roku Streaming Sticks next week. To update manually, simply select Settings > Software update > Check now on your Roku player.
