The Roku (roh-koo) brand of smart TV operating systems, televisions, streaming devices, smart home and audio products is a line of devices manufactured by the American company Roku, Inc.

Roku primarily offers a series of standalone streaming devices, like the Roku Express, Roku Streaming Stick+, and Roku Ultra, that connect to an HDMI input on a non-smart or less-smart TV and provide access to popular streaming channels and services in an easy-to-use interface. Some of Roku’s streaming devices also come with built-in voice capabilities, which allow users to search for content by actor, director, or movie/TV title using the included remote control or via the free Roku mobile app on iOS and Android smartphones and tablets.

The core of a Roku device is its software, which is essentially the secret sauce to its popularity. When you first power on a Roku device, the device’s home screen will appear and enable you to navigate the device operation and select channels/apps with ease. Most Roku devices, including the newest releases, also feature a voice-search function that makes it even easier to find what you’re looking for.

The simplest way to set up a Roku is to plug the unit into an HDMI input on your TV, then select that input with the included remote. Then, you can follow the setup prompts that will walk you through connecting to your wireless network. If you’re setting up a Roku in a hotel or dorm room, the device has a special feature to make it simple to connect to the Wi-Fi in these locations, which often require a secondary sign-in process through a captive portal page on your smartphone or tablet.
