The new player features improvements in wireless networking abilities – it will sport a dual-band 2.4GHz-5GHz Wi-Fi connection, which improves the range and translates into faster download speeds.

The Roku 3 also ships with a Roku remote that includes a headphone jack and headphones. The remote also doubles as a controller and can be used for games that take advantage of motion-sensors, like Angry Birds.

Amazon will have the Roku 3 beginning tomorrow, and it will be available in retail stores in April.
