Free Upgrade Brings Full HD to Roku XR


Owners of the Roku HD-XR PlayerRoku XR internet TV set-top box can now enhance their high definition viewing to 1080p for free. Roku recently released a downloadable upgrade that can help users get the most out of their HD experience.

The recent upgrade is a free download for owners of the Roku XR. The download allows users to view images available at 1080p resolution (when available) instead of just 720p. The upgrade also speeds up the reaction time of the remote control and allows Hulu videos to load faster.

Roku XR, the lowest box available from Roku, will automatically download and install the update. Those who want it sooner can initiate the download manually if they wish.
