In early January, we announced the Roku Streaming Stick ™ – a tiny streaming player that is completely wireless and only the size of a USB flash drive.

The Roku Streaming Stick is an easy and cost-effective way for consumer electronics manufacturers to add the proven Roku streaming platform to a device that features Mobile High-Definition Link (MHL). Wondering what MHL is? It resembles HDMI but unlike other connectors, delivers power and other critical elements for the Roku Streaming Stick. You can learn more about MHL here.

Today we are unveiling our first Roku Streaming Stick partners which include:

  • Element Electronics
  • GlobalVue International, LLC
  • Haier
  • Hitachi America, Ltd.
  • Insignia, a Best Buy brand
  • Mitsubishi Electric (TVs)
  • Onkyo and Integra
  • OPPO
  • TMAX Digital, Inc.(Apex Digital® TVs)

These companies are working closely with Roku to develop new consumer electronics devices that will work seamlessly out of the box with the Roku Streaming Stick. That means you’ll be able to select from a range of devices and all of them will have been tested by Roku to ensure they provide the best streaming experience.

These new ‘Roku Ready®’ devices will display a distinctive Roku logo on their packaging making them easy to identify. In addition, select devices will be bundled with the Roku Streaming Stick already inside so consumers can immediately receive the full benefits of the Roku streaming platform.

This Holiday season is going to be exciting with Roku available on more devices than ever!

The Roku Streaming Stick will be available in the coming weeks from Roku and select retailers. For more information about the Roku Streaming Stick visit

Happy streaming!

    Hard to get excited about a Roku dongle that requires you to buy new, expensive TV to use it!

    How about making it work with the regular HDMI that most all TVs already have? CEC RCP does not require MHL and you can get power through mini or micro USB connector on the side.

    What I see as great about this (and I’m looking long term as I am sure Roku is) is that as the port becomes commonplace you’ll be able to take your Roku with you on business trips, to the friend house, etc. and be able to get right to your Netflix, NBA TV, GBTV, etc by plugging right in to the TV and have access to your entire streaming library. Even better, you don’t have any extra wires or connections to worry about, just a “thumb drive” that you can carry in your pocket anywhere in the world.

    No, you can’t do that yet, but it will happen sooner than you think, I suspect.

  • this is such a great idea and a step forward for roku as a company

    I live in Mexico and with TelMex I get a maximum download speed of 5mbs.

    I LOVE MY ROKU!!!!!

    I use it with GetUSAWebsites.TV (Access code 863) They’re different in that they only jump in when the geo check is done, but the rest of the time it’s a direct connection NOT going through a proxy. The result is that I ALWAYS get a HD signal awesome video on Netflix, and Hulu. I hate other services where too many users bog down the server, and the quality goes up and down. (Mostly down and skipping!) Grrrrr….

    I think GetUSAWebsites approach is superior, and am VERY happy.

    My local friend has only a 1.7mbs download speed, and they are using it with their Roku and they love it too.

    GetUSAWebsites has 2 plans. Basic is $4.99 and Deluxe is $7.99 a month. I seriously couldn’t live without it!
