The $29 Roku Express streaming player just got a big update — and it’s up for preorder now

Roku will approach the 2022 Christmas shopping season in a more restrained manner.

The streaming giant is concentrating on two new items — a redesigned Express

and a totally new Roku Wireless Bass speaker — combined with a fresh software

experience for owners of Roku streaming devices, rather than updating or introducing a number of new hardware goods.

Preorders for the $29.99 Roku Express and the $129.99 Roku Wireless Bass speaker are now open;

the Express will arrive in the middle of October, and the Wireless Bass will ship on November 7.

Roku is offering a Wireless Bass bundle with the Streambar for $249.99 in addition to selling

the Wireless Bass separately to improve current Roku systems.
