Roku 2 includes WiFi, Bluetooth and 'Angry Birds'

Roku's latest streaming device, the appropriately named Roku 2, will be available by the end of this month. The energy-sipping line (it uses less than 2 watts of power) comes in three flavors: a basic 720p model for $59; a 1080p XD model for $79, and the top-of-the line 1080p XS for $99. All three models come with built-in WiFi and Bluetooth, and the XS comes with a Bluetooth motion remote and supports gaming (it comes with a free version of Angry Birds). The devices all support Netflix, Amazon Instant Video, Hulu Plus and offer 300 channels of streaming content, including NBA Game Time, NHL GameCenter Live, streaming music and more. Article
