Roku has launched an affordable wireless extender that has been optimized for Roku media streaming players.
A few months ago, many top media houses claimed that Roku was testing a Wi-Fi extender known as ‘Roku Relay’, but it wasn’t clear as to when the company will launch it.
Now, those big media houses have confirmed that Roku is continuing tests of this relay and it could launch the device soon. Roku Com Link Activation Code has also uploaded support documents for its Wi-Fi extender along with the publishing setup apps for Android as well as iOS. The app for Android has already received a few reviews in the Google Play Store, which shows that things are very close in terms of the launch of this new product by Roku.
By making use of a setup process-involving mobile along with restricting the wireless coverage to Roku devices, the relay can be made more effective than a regular Wi-Fi extender by getting rid of a wide range of streaming problems like buffering, but the feature is only for Roku players.
Roku spokesperson has also told that the company is working incessantly to bringing new products and features that keep the users excited, but at the same time are useful for them as well.
Working of Roku Relay
The normal Wi-Fi extenders that people use, they had to plug them into a wall outlet at a place where the strength of the Wi-Fi signal is almost negligible.
Roku Relay works in a similar fashion, but the only difference is that it works for Roku streaming players and smart TVs. Although nothing has been clear as to how this device would work, many experts believe that Roku Relay will run on a wireless channel dedicated to Roku activation code, a channel that would act as an ‘express lane’ for audio and video. That will free up the bandwidth for other devices that are connected on the same network.
Roku Relay will most probably work with multiple Roku players and smart TVs in a home, but some support documents suggest that users can assign a device, which they want to have the best signal strength for. Users will also be able to set up a boosted device via Roku Relay’s mobile app, but they must factory reset the device to optimize a different Roku player or TV.
To find the best place to install Roku Relay, the mobile app will play a major role, as users can easily identify the potential spots where they can install the unit. The app can then run a speed test and offer information on whether the location is working properly or not. Moreover, users can also test other setup locations and compare as to which one is the best. Roku Relay is going to work for all Roku players and Roku TVs, and the rumored price of the device has been kept at $40.
