It’s a neat idea, but it’s not quite a reality yet.
But the new Roku streaming box, codenamed the Roku Plus, is here and it looks like it’s worth the wait.
The Roku Plus is the first Roku device that ships with Roku streaming apps for Apple TV, Chromecast, and the Apple TV remote.
Its built-in Apple TV Remote is the only one that can actually control the streaming app, with the Roku Box getting all of the control.
The Roku Plus comes with Roku apps for Netflix, Hulu, and HBO Go, as well as a few other streaming apps.
The box is designed to be a streaming media hub, with a dual-core processor, a 2GB RAM, 4GB of storage, and 802.11n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, and USB-C connectivity.
It will run on Amazon Fire TV, Roku TV, and other Fire TV-compatible devices.
In addition to the Roku streaming app and remote, the RokuPlus also includes Chromecast support, but its a little confusing at first.
The Chromecast-ready Roku Plus will be available in April, and will be sold as an add-on to the box, not as a standalone device.
The bundle includes two Chromecast tuners and a Chromecast wireless dongle.
The new Roku Plus also comes with the Chromecast remote and HDMI port, so it will work with all Roku players that have Chromecast hardware.
The new Roku Streaming Box will also support Chromecast streaming to other devices with the same HDMI port.
For the Roku player, Roku users will have the option to stream apps to their Chromecast devices, and if they have an Apple TV or Chromecast device, they can control the app from there.
For Roku users who already own an AppleTV, Chromecasting will only be possible through the Roku remote.
