To complement our coverage of the constant for digital broadcasting which add features to smart TV, a digital broadcast via the internet to television sets, which now provide alternative modern and traditional dishes for the reception of television broadcasting via satellite, and after our coverage of the previous one system solutions AndroidTV, we choose today your Roku Ultra, the top option among the devices offered by Roku specialized in these digital solutions.

Exterior design:

Comes Roku device Ultra in image box small skinny black color without a lot of features, and features HDMI, Ethernet, wallpaper, and USB ports for cards microSD side. Concentrated actual design of the device in the remote controller “remote,” which come size compact design is simple but very good. Designed the remote so that it can be used in both vertical and horizontal; in the vertical mode is the default mode is to use the navigation buttons and browse interface to use in addition to the side buttons was to choose their place carefully so that they fit with the theme of the hand thumb when holding the remote and control the level of sound, and the horizontal position depends on your use for the buttons router in addition to the two buttons A and B it is specially designed for the use of games. In general, the design is perfect and impressed me strongly.

Operating system:

Protect all devices Roku interface use very simple and user-friendly to the greatest extent, where the system is designed to allow the user to quickly browse the content you want to access. Interface to use depends on the suspension of large-sized and the image of the cover content, and you need more than buttons direction button choose to browse them.

Divided interface to use to two main sections; the list of browsing content channels, the function of searching for content, in addition of course to the properties of the system itself. Show a list of content channels to those channels that you have added to your device, which will be described later, and you can rearrange them and choose the quick-access buttons to any of those channels that you prefer and use it a lot.

The search function ability to search for content across all channels that you have added other than those that do not have added so that you can for example search for the name of the movie or series specific and show the results list all the services through which you can watch this movie like Netflix, Amazon Prime, Hulu and other with statement if you can watch this content for free According for trusting one of the services, as well as the price of this content of other service providers.

Was the process of adjusting the device for operation in a matter of minutes, this includes the definition of the system to content providers who have subscription to their services, as well as the installation of control application for through the mobile phone. Regarding the remote control also during the development process on TV where the user says the remote to control the TV as well so you don’t need to over compress the play button in the controller the Roku to the television system, Roku with at the same time and the same thing when the volume control also; one of the wonderful touches in the system.

Voice search:

Are all devices Roku in the duty to use due to you operating content, but only supports devices Roku Ultra and Roku Streaming Stick search feature and plugin audio. Can through the voice assistant device control and search for content through voice commands, and the remote microphone service, all you need is constant pressure on the button the voice commands in the remote while you talk about it to implement it and the system will automatically search for the content you want on or off the system etc from the command supported. Through my experience of that property, the results were good but not stable, in the sense most of the time works fluently and you don’t find any problem in identifying what I’m talking out of orders, and sometimes a few completely fail to recognize what I’m saying even with the re-repeat it for many times, I think the service need some improvements regarding steady level and its dependence.


Here lies the point of the actual system, Roku, which makes it is characterized by distances large on a lot of competitors currently. The difference here is that the Roku does not classify itself as a service provider, other than “Amazon” and”Apple” to “Google” who produces devices for a digital broadcast via the internet and destroy the stores of the content at the same time.

To understand more what I mean, the Roku promotion system that supports more than 500 thousand channel content completely free and currently, include those channels the number of channels that broadcast digital content cart free includes movies, series, documentaries, in addition to supporting accounts for all services digital broadcasting famous that you probably have you’re account has such as Netflix, Amazon Prime, Hulu, وSling and many others, as well as many television channels entertainment world such as the networks of CBS and Showtime, and others.

What it means here is that the machine always tries to offer you the first choices in the get the content you want to share, whether entertainment, or news or other, then it follows that providing services along that stretch you a subscription then have other additional services, which ensures you always have her full in the case decided to get rid of any paid service at any time.

Final evaluation:

Unit remote control genius, interface use very easy, and tons of free content with support for paid services, I find system Roku is the best currently from what I’ve tried so far from the systems to broadcast digital content via the internet to the screen of your TV.

The price of the Roku device Ultra the value of USD 100, which supports ال4K comes with a free JBL call backup if you want to listen without disturbing others with loud TV, but the prices of devices Roku other start from 30 $ and the system is almost the same except for the acoustic properties support for 4K, what makes me say that this device is worth virtually every penny you may spend to buy it.
