Roku the maker of digital streaming boxes has released a new model the Roku Streaming Stick. The Roku Streaming Stick is the size of a large USB stick. It provides all the content that is on the full-size Roku, including over 700 music and video channels and games. The Roku Streaming Stick works with TVs that have a MHL(Multiple High-Definition}input. The MHL input powers the Roku so there is no need for a power cable. It also passes the remote control signal from the TV to the Roku stick so you can control the Roku with your TV remote.
Roku is working with about 14 TV manufactures including Hinsense, Sony, LG, Samsung, Toshiba and more. All the TV manufacturers that the Roku Streaming Stick works with are a part of the MHL Consortium. New TVs that are Roku Stick ready will have a sticker on them that say Roku Ready. If you have an older TV you can check the inputs, a MHL input will be purple and have the MHL label below it. A MHL port will also work as a HDMI port.
To use of Roku Stick you simply plug it in. It is WiFi ready so it will recognize your Wi-Fi network once you sign into that and then your Roku account you will be ready to go. The Roku Stick streams up to 1080P HD video. The Roku Streaming stick is $99, and is available through the Roku Website, Amazon and various big box outlets.
