Other enhancements are Wide Color with NBP Photon Technology, 240 Natural Motion technology for a smoother image, and the aforementioned Roku TV enhancements. Powerful picture performance is complemented by the Roku OS with the most streaming content available and seamless access your cable box, Blu-ray player, gaming console, and other devices without flipping through inputs or complicated menus.
