All Roku Streaming Devices

Roku has a long history when it comes to streaming devices, dating way back to 2008. Yes, I’m talking about the first generation of Roku streaming devices, the Roku DVP N1000. Interestingly, this first streaming device was developed in collaboration with Netflix

Since 2008, we have enjoyed seeing more than 20 models of Roku streaming devices. Some of them (first-generation devices) are legacy models, meaning the manufacturing has been discontinued, and you cannot update the system any longer. 

Second-generation devices are still supported for updates, and you are able to update the system on your Roku device, despite the fact it was manufactured five or more years ago. Though it’s worth mentioning that older devices have some limitations, so users might experience issues with them. 

Let’s check the list of all Roku streaming players.
