UPDATE: Sadly, the Roku Shake Remote isn’t real. Happy April Fools’ Day, friends!

Roku has shipped millions and millions of streaming players. We’ve expanded into international markets. And total streaming hours on Roku are going through the roof!

While this is great, it makes us wonder – if people are streaming this much, when are they working on their fitness?

All that changes today. We’re thrilled to announce an industry first – and a ground-breaking new addition to our product line: the Roku Shake Remote.

Stop Dreamin’. Start Streaming. And Shakin’.

Featuring patent-pending Kenitiku™ technology, the Roku Shake Remote  takes the power of kinetic motion and changes it into bulging HD muscles – all while you catch up on Downton Abbey, listen to Pandora or fling those Angry Birds. With the Roku Shake Remote, you’re guaranteed to increase your muscle activity 1,000,000% more than watching just regular TV!

Three Kick-Butt Workout Modes

Unleash your inner Zoolander and shake your way to a really, really good-looking body with the “Stiller” mode. If it’s 80’s aerobics you’re looking for, grab your leg warmers and downshift to the “Fonda” mode. Or, for the ultimate Navy SEAL-certified workout, channel Hollywood’s favorite enormous blond muscle-bound Euro bad guy with the “Lundgren” mode. You’ll get ripped AND develop a killer Euro accent too!

Pricing and Availability

The new Shake Remote is available starting April 1 exclusively at Roku.com.  It’s  just three easy payments of $19.95 plus $9.95 for shipping and handling. Order yours today!

    Very clever! I love that Roku took the joke far enough to create a video! Great fun!

  • I was curious enough to click over from FB to read this, and to watch the ridiculous video. Great job on the April Fool’s joke.

    April Fools!! LOL Love you Roku. Now get us Angry Birds Space please 🙂

  • Thing is, I would probably use this new remote if I could get my hands on it. It would be pretty awesome to see my friend’s and family’s reactions to how the remote works.

  • Rick

    So, are there Rokus on each end so I can stream to two different TVs at the same time while I work out?

  • Adigitaldj1

    This is what needs the remote buit in! LOL


  • This would is a good tool to build up those sleeping muscles in the chest area. A little shake n’ bake isn’t a bad idea. In fact, I think it’s quite effective. It looks a bit funny when it shakes though. Uhmm.. That’s a pretty nice concept, though I hope it’s not a joke for April Fool’s!
