The popular Roku player has given users the convenience of streaming movies from Netflix and Amazon Video On Demand. Now you can get even more function from your Roku media player with the addition of new “App Channels” that include the likes of Pandora, Flickr, Facebook and three channels powered by Mediafly. You’ve previously seen Mediafly on various devices, including your iPhone, BlackBerry, Android smartphones, Chumby, and Zune. As the company promised, they’ve expanded with full support for Roku players.
Mediafly has initially launched three channels on the Roku, including This Week in Tech (TWiT.tv), , and the official Mediafly channel. Additional channels and content powered by Mediafly are expected to launch on the Roku and other platforms throughout 2010. The features and new channels will be rolled out to existing Roku owners throughout December, but if you can’t wait for the automatic upgrade you can install the updates yourself by going to Settings > Device info > Update on your Roku player.
These new channel features make the Roku player more versatile, and, at theand no subscription fees, one of the most affordable entertainment players that you can give this holiday season.
