According to recent leaks, Roku is set to conduct its biggest line-up overhaul in some time and is reportedly going to replace all of its current streaming devices with all-new set-top boxes, for a grand total of five new unveilings.
This is as according to documents that were filed with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) in the US this week, which shown 3 of the new devices in the listings. The other two were revealed from a number of Canadian retailer leaks.
According to the blog Zatz Not Funny, the existing Roku 1 will be replaced by the Roku Express and the Roku Express Plus (those were the Candian leaks), however, we don’t know much more than their name just yet.
Thankfully, the FCC filing does show some more information about the next 3 devices.
