Amazon Prime Instant Video now available on Roku
11 Nov 15
With Amazon Prime Instant Video now available on Roku, the Roku family of players have arguably become the best-supported on the market. This is why we love Roku at Linsar and why we include the Roku Streaming Stick in the box with some of our best models, including the 50LED625.
With apps including BBC iPlayer, Now TV, Netflix, Google Play, Spotify, All4 and ITV Player – to name but a few – Roku gives you access to endless entertainment with over 100,000 films and TV episodes; plus music, news, sports, and more.
As reported by Trusted Reviews it certainly gives Roku a fresh advantage over the Apple TV and Google Chromecast, which continue to omit support for Amazon Prime Instant Video. Because of this Amazon recently took the decision to stop selling both the Apple TV and Google Chromecast. “It’s important that the streaming media players we sell interact well with Prime Video in order to avoid customer confusion,” said Amazon, before adding that “Roku, Xbox, PlayStation and Fire TV are excellent choices.”
The next update we hope to receive from Roku will be when the 4K-ready Roku 4 will be available here in the UK!
