“Roku SoundBridge was designed to be appealing for the living room and kitchen, with a unique display and remote control so consumers don’t have to go anywhere near their laptops or desktops to play digital music,” said Roku Founder and CEO Anthony Wood in the press release. “Now that Wi-Fi is included with all SoundBridge models, there are even more reasons why SoundBridge is the perfect network music player for any home.”
