Now possible through its iOS app, Roku has added the ability to stream content stored on an iPhone, iPad or iPod touch directly to a number of its hugely popular family of set-top TV products.
The freshly unveiled Roku for iOS builds upon on the company’s familiar “Play on Roku” feature that allows users to stream photos and music to a Roku device.
The feature is compatible with the Roku 3, Roku 2, Roku HD and Roku LT players along with the Roku Streaming Stick.
Available as an iOS-only function at the moment, the addition of video streaming applies to content stored on an iOS device’s Camera Roll.
This is not analogous to Apple’s AirPlay, which lets users stream movies and other videos stored on their device to televisions.
To check out the new app for yourself, the free download is available now on iTunes.
