Roku To Launch “Special Edition” Hardware for Black Friday

As they’re wont to do, Black Friday promotional materials have started trickling out. And, as you might expect, there are a number of streaming hardware deals. One of the more interesting ones has nothing to do with price. Although, that too, is compelling.


For the holidays, Roku is releasing (yet another) model in the “Roku SE” — based on the hardware ID (2710SE), we can assume this is a rebadged Roku 1 (2710R). So it will feature significantly lesser processing power than the 2015 Roku 2 and Roku 3… but supports RCA connections for older, lower def televisions. At $25, it’s not a bad deal at all. Although, for the same money, if one has HDMI, we’d direct you to the Amazon Fire TV Stick sale.

(Thanks Patrick!)

  1. “Youtube? Subtitles on Netflix?”

    Wrong thinking. It’s a special edition. That makes it special. Specs are besides the point.

  2. The SE should have been the “Stick Edition”. They need to drop the ‘1’ series and put the RCA jacks into the ‘2’ series.
