Roku adds Amazon Video to streaming platform

Amazon Video joins Netflix, Google Play movies, Sky Store, Now TV, BBC iPlayer, ITV Player, All 4 and Demand 5, as well as countless other services.

Amazon Video will play nice with the universal search feature Roku introduced in October, which allows users to search by film, TV show, actor and more.

Roku has launched the Roku 4 player in the US, which is capable of supporting 4K video, including content from Netflix and Amazon. It’s still unclear when the 4K streaming box will make its way across the pond to the UK. The company has said it plans to bring the box to other countries “over time”.

Max is a staff writer for What Hi-Fi?'s sister site, TechRadar, in Australia. But being the wonderful English guy he is, he helps out with content across a number of Future sites, including What Hi-Fi?. It wouldn't be his first exposure to the world of all things hi-fi and home cinema, as his first role in technology journalism was with What Hi-Fi? in the UK. Clearly he pined to return after making the move to Australia and the team have welcomed him back with arms wide open.
