Roku has announced the UK availability of four Roku TVs, built by Hisense, on Friday November 29th at Argos.
Announced back at IFA, these 4K HDR TVs come with RokuOS, a smart TV platform considered by many to be the best due to its ability to run just about every streaming service with full independence from any one provider.
That means you can access the likes of YouTube, Netflix, Now TV, Amazon Prime Video, and of course all the live (via Freeview Play) and catch-up services from the BBC, ITV, Channel 4, Five and so on.
Roku offers a full list of supported channels here. There are over 5,000 in all.
Every TV comes complete with the remote control, or via an app for iOS and Android devices. The home screen on the TV itself can be fully customised.
Owners can also cast photos and video to the TV from their phone or tablet.
