Alexa can now (sort of) control your Roku devices

Wednesday, March 6th, 2019

Amazon's own Fire TV products have had deep Alexa integration for years. Just like with a Chromecast and Google Assistant, you can use voice commands like "Play The Office" or "Turn down the volume" from any Alexa smart speaker. If you're on #TeamRoku, Alexa can now control Roku TVs and streaming devices — at least, in theory.

Roku announced earlier today that it released an Alexa Skill, which allows users to control Roku devices with voice commands like "Alexa, find comedies on Roku" and "Alexa, open Hulu on Roku." If the connected device is a Roku TV, you can also tell Alexa to change HDMI inputs, mute the volume, and more.

Monday, January 28th, 2019

The Roku Channel, currently a library of free ad-supported movies and TV shows, will soon grow to include paid subscription services including, most notably, Showtime and Starz. The savvy business move will draw in more channel viewers and likely boost ad revenue, as well as allow the company to play a more active role in the content that runs on its devices. From a user perspective, there are two main benefits: easier, consolidated content searching in one channel, and the ability to pay for multiple subscriptions through one monthly bill.
