Roku Streaming Stick promised for fall 2012

Roku has announced the Roku Streaming Stick to “make a better Smart TV.” The USB-sized device will plug into you HDTV via an MHL-enabled HDMI port (a new standard already adapted by manufacturers such as Samsung, Toshiba, and Sony). The stick will feature WiFi, a built-in processor, memory, and software to bring the Roku interface to your television. Netflix’s VP Greg Peters says the device is “a great solution for Netflix because it allows us to deliver the Netflix experience found on the Roku platform to potentially any TV.” Roku was the first to stream Netflix to the TV back in 2008. The Roku platform also supports services such as Amazon Instant Video, Hulu Plus, Pandora, and HBO GO. The Streaming Stick will hit Best Buy stores sometime fall 2012. The device may be bundled with an HDTV or sold separately.
