Roku Now Available In the UK With Added BBC iPlayer

By Sam Gibbs on at

The cheap streaming mini-marvel of a set-top box that our American cousins have been raving about for years is finally available on our shores. It’s shipping right now and has even had the BBC iPlayer bundled in for good measure.

Two models are available; a £50 720p-pusher the Roku LT and the £100 Roku 2 XS, which ups its game to 1080p and bundles in a Bluetooth motion-controller for a bit of casual gaming.

If you’re looking for a cheap and small box to bring Netflix, BBC iPlayer and a load of other on-demand streaming media “channels” then you won’t go far wrong with a Roku or two.
