Roku Ultra 4660R - enhanced "point anywhere" remote with voice search and headphone jack for personal TV
The compact Roku Ultra fits into your TV setup and serves up a ton of streaming 4K and HD channels.
I know from experience — when you get a 4K TV, you want to watch shows and movies that really show off the picture. After I purchased an OLED TV, I became spoiled and now can only watch Stranger Things in 4K. (For me, the rich imagery adds even more texture — and extra dread — to the story-telling.) The Roku Ultra connects to your TV and serves up the largest selection of 4K and HDR streaming video services, movies, and shows available in one “box.”
Roku's unbiased search finds the cheapest way to watch your favorite shows.
Roku's redesigned remote is easy to use and can even control your TV's volume. Since the remote communicates over Wi-Fi, you can store the player out of sight and still have full control. Worried about keeping track of another clicker? You can press the "find my remote" button on the Roku Ultra, and the remote will make a sound.
The remote also has a 3.5mm headphone jack for personal listening. Use your own headphones or the included earbuds and watch TV without disturbing others.
The remote also features voice control. Tap the voice search button on the remote, and call out the name of a movie, show, or actor. Roku's “unbiased search” will hunt through the top channels for the cheapest way to watch. That's pretty handy for cost-conscious cord-cutters who no longer pay for cable.
While most 4K TVs have some streaming services baked in, Roku offers the most complete list of 4K options I've seen. Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Instant Video, and Vudu are all available in 4K. Plus there's a ridiculous amount of standard HD streaming channels – movie channels, news, kids, sports, you name it.
The Roku Ultra also has a snappy interface, thanks to its quad-core processing. You can breeze through the menu and swiftly load up channels. If you're looking for a particular show or movie,
While I've dabbled in cord-cutting, I'm currently a cable subscriber. Still, I call the Roku I bought for my bedroom TV the best bang-for-my-buck purchase I've made all year. It gives me on-demand shows from my cable channels like FX, HBO, AMC, and more. So I can watch Fargo or Better Call Saul on my own time — without having to rent another cable box.
Plus, late at night, I can plug my headphones into the remote and listen at a volume where dialogue is still clear. That's how I recently re-watched The Sopranos, binging through the first two seasons after my wife went to sleep. (The show still holds up, by the way.)
The Roku Ultra connects to your TV via a single HDMI cable. Then it connects to your network wirelessly via Wi-Fi. You log on, type in your Wi-Fi password, and that's basically it — all the instructions are on-screen. (Or, plug it into your router and network hub with an Ethernet cable.)
Roku's free mobile app lets you operate the player using your Apple® or Android™ device. Choose what you want to watch and control video playback from your phone. You can also connect headphones and hear TV sound, just like with the remote.

Love the interface, Using it is a breeze. So far have to rate it 5 stars
Pros: easy of use, options,
This is my first go at a Roku and I like it a lot there is a lot to learn about all the available channels. I would suggest to anyone buying one buy the Ultra for your main big screen tv and maybe a roku stick for the bedroom or bedrooms! I think it's worth the money.
Easy to install comes with many channels with cructhfield help excellent service my whole family loves it joe mco
Pros: Easy to set up user friendly curutchfield services
This is my third Roku and it's a very nice item. Came loaded with more apps than I'll ever use. Works crisply, with excellent visuals and sound. Headphone jack in remote works well for late-night viewing. Very pleased with this one.
Not a bad product, does what I purchased it for.
Pros: Plenty of apps
Excellent streaming device that comes with a hard wire Ethernet connection. This is a must since I have 4 devices already using the WiFi bandwidth in my home. If you have a home with a WiFi security system, a tablet, a laptop computer and a cellphone all linked to your WiFi router, you're using a lot of it's available wireless bandwidth. Using a Roku device that connects to a wired Ethernet connection means your TV isn't competing with all your wireless devices for the same wireless connection. This is one of the few streaming devices that offers the hard wire connection. A must for me. Thank you Roku!
Pros: Easy setup, small size, Ethernet connection available, a must!
Cons: Roku claims some of their streaming sites are "Top Free". Some are not (Science Channel and Fox News for example) unless you have a cable TV subscription. But if you're subscribed to cable TV, why would you invest in a Roku streaming device? It's a ploy and not honest on Roku's part. Crutchfield however has got honesty down pat. A great company built on integrity and customer service. Excellent!
The best streaming device on the market! Giving you access to all the applications and channels you could want, it makes little sense to go with any other option. Plus this device can synch to your TV eliminating the need for multiple remotes and essentially turning your TV into a Smart TV - I really like this feature.
Pros: Access to every channel you could possibly want.
I purchased the Roku Ultra because my older Roku 3 burned through remote batteries very fast. After researching the Roku Ultra it sounded like the newer technology was more efficient and battery life longer due to changes in the remote. However, after 3 days it used up the batteries. I have contacted Roku, they are sending me a new remote (I doubt that this will fix the problem, I think it is inherent to the design). All-in-all, I would rate this one star, not really any better than the Roku 3 unless you want 4k
Pros: 4k if you have 4k
Cons: Same as Roku 3 as far as I can tell.
Replaced my Roku2 with this Ultra version. Considerable performance improvement all around, especially when I connected it via the Ethernet port. The ability to connect headphones to the remote is a great feature. I can finally sleep while my wife watches tv at night. Remote also controls tv volume and power. Was able to cancel my Spectrum tv and stream all I need with a Spectrum Choice. Thank you Roku and Crutchfield.
I love this device. This is my third one. The two previous ones a Roku 1 and Roku 3 still work great. Just wanted to upgrade to latest model. I'm moving to 4K Tv.
Pros: Easy to set up and I like the voice search.
I purchased a Fire TV (4K) on sale at the same time I purchased this Roku Ultra so I could compare them head to head while I try to decide how I'll proceed with my cord cutting. I also purchased the ethernet adapter for the Fire TV (included with the Roku). Both were connected to a LG OLED 65" 4K TV for testing and to a wired managed switch with aggregate backbone (2gb/s). Here's how I rate them: Cost: FireTV (found on sale) Setup: Tie. Both easy to setup (Roku thru a hdcp2.2 error resolved by reconnecting the hdmi) Interface: Roku (FireTV was focused on Prime and paid content) Apps: Tie. I found equivalents for both Fire TV and Roku for every channel I was interested in. (your mileage may vary) The FireTV didn't seem to have a search utility for apps so using a PC was easier to locate what was desired. I plan to add a SiliconDust HDHomerun Quatro OTA to stream device soon and did not find an app for the Roku for that. The two devices are pretty closely tied but interface is KING so the Roku gets the nod for me due to it's customizations. The app page primarily but also the theme and screensaver can be changed. I also prefer the focus on free content compared to the Amazon focus on Prime and paid content. The same content is there on both but it's easier to find the free stuff with a Roku. I'll be looking to purchase a couple more Roku's for my other TV's. One other note, the Roku failed to format a Patriot 64GB MicroSD card. I know it only needs
Pros: Easy setup, wide variety of free and paid content, user interface more focused on free content than Fire TV
Cons: some poor quality channels, MicroSD slot compatibility issues, HDCP2.2 glitched
full featured easy setup, integrates well with existing apps, adds movie and tv programs to your viewing options. If you are already streaming online on a small device get this streaming player to move images to the big screen. Well thought out product design
Pros: fully functional steaming player with multiple inputs, well thought out product design
I'm not easily impressed but I am impressed - the Roku Ultra is an easy 5 stars. Its outstanding performance is widely documented and need not be repeated here. I want to describe its use in an advanced 4K AV system that even Roku neglects to do, instead they promote its use with a TV alone. Any AV component can act as a hub for the Ultra as long as it has an HDMI 2.0 input and at least two HDMI outputs. To avoid unwanted interactions between AV components, all HDMI-CEC functions should first be turned off. The AV system's activities are best controlled by a universal remote such as the Logitech Harmony which can also control all of the Ultra's functions. The TV is the least useful hub for the Ultra because the TV cannot be turned off when streaming music and audio signals are not easily directed to the sound system(s). An AV receiver works well as a hub but it requires that video signals be processed by the receiver. A 4K Blu-Ray player is the best hub for the Ultra because the BDP sends video directly to the TV and audio directly to the receiver and thus allows the TV to be toggled off when desired. Setting up the Ultra was easy - the only glitch was its remote that needed 5 min to recognize the Ultra. After completing the Ultra's setup menu, my Harmony was programmed for two Roku activities and the Roku remote was put in a drawer with all the others. I hope this helps those of you who want to add the Roku Ultra's stellar performance to your AV
Pros: Perfect integration with a 4K AV system
Easy to install, works Great even with older HD TV.
Pros: easy to install, a few minutes :) Great picture
Amazing picture and sound with 4K movies! You won't believe how beautiful and vibrant your TV color picture is capable of displaying until you start streaming 4K TV shows and movies. I have 3 ROKU units in my home, Two ROKU 3 and this ROKU Ultra. One other feature I really appreciate about this newest model is its on/off switch which is lacking in the other models. Highly recommended!
Pros: Fantastic beautiful 4K picture Unbelievable amount of channels
Cons: Slow and cumbersome procedure to use your laptop or tablet to "activate" many channels with code numbers. The easiest way to add channels is to log on to the ROKU website, but many times you still must go back and use the given code to activate the channel for each registered ROKU unit.
Awesome works great with Samsung TV
Pros: Fast and better product features to interface with TV
Order through delivery was smooth and easy. Roku setup was simple and fast. Works great.
It really is an excellent resource for fascinating information on science, nature and politics, as well as a lot of fine entertainment across a very broad spectrum of choices. For those of us stuck with money-grabbing cable television companies, this provides a way around dismal offerings and quickly rising prices. It was a bit tricky at first to sort out how to make the ROKU function with a surround sound receiver. ONE HDMI cable from the receiver to the television was all it needed. (Local friends who are audio and video geeks were suggesting unneeded "solutions" for something very basic) The tech support and sales agents at Crutchfield couldn't be more helpful. They listen, answer questions AND provide a solution to what you are trying to figure out. Patience is a virtue, and they definitely receive a 10 out of 10 for that. Crutchfield in my GO TO supplier for affordable electronics, speedy delivery and excellent prices. They provide a benchmark for other companies, and they are doing it right here at home.
Pros: Excellent assortment of viewing and listening sources and an intuitive, helpful remote control.
Cons: So far no cons to report. I hope to keep it that way.
I decided to do away with cable but the location of my home does not allow for antenna signals. I choose this unit because it appeared to provide the most options for various streaming and video services. I highly recommend this. I found the set-up easy. There are many free programs. I am not interested in the streaming services that replicate the programming available on cable. I did subscribe to CBS All Access, with commercials, for about $6/mo, and it meets my needs for national and local news and weather plus it includes a huge library of videos.
Pros: Easy set-up. Small unit; takes up minimal space. A lot of free programming. If you want to pay for premium channels, you have that option.
Cons: There is a learning curve regarding finding all the available options for programming; internet searches assisted with locating "hidden" channels.
I think this is a good design. The setup had moments of frustration. Changing settings to power the tv on and off is difficult after the first time. Then there was an issue with the picture being in the wrong format after turning off the tv and turning it back on--possibly from bad tv on/off settings. Eventually after a frustrating day things were ironed out and now it works great.
Pros: Good performance. Pretty intuitive
Cons: Setup can be frustrating. some things seem counterintuitive and more documented explanation might be helpful.
I purchased this Ruko Ultra 3 months ago and just love it. All kinds of content, there are many channels that can be added, and hidden channels as well. Look on the Internet about hidden channels. Lots of free channels too. I have not used the ethernet cable port. It works excellent with wireless, absolutely no streaming issues at all. Both picture and audio are excellent. I only wish I had bought one of these a long time ago.
Great picture and sound, much better on ethernet than wi-fi. It's really convenient being able to plug headphones into the remote, also to be able to turn the TV on and off and control TV's volume. Replaced a Fire TV 4K with this and the Roku seems to work better. The only drawback is the Fire TV favors Prime over the Roku, but I will get used to that. Well worth it.
Pros: Great picture and sound. Fast response. Headphones plug into remote and control tv volume.
Great purchase does whatever it claims to do...A perfect buy for me very happy with....
Easy to install it works perfectly with Hulu Tv. And we have pulled the plug on Sat. TV.
I cut the cord from satellite TV and installed the Roku Ultra. Performs flawlessly and am now enjoying a better TV viewing experience for far less money and more options. I have an internet connection with 30MB download and it handles 2 TVs without strain. Internet is hard wired to the ROKU. ROKU is connected to the Yamaha RX-V683 AV Receiver HDMI (HDCP2.2 ) port and from there to Samsung QLED TV. Outstanding picture when 4K material is available and almost as good when not. Roku ultra remote easily turns the whole operation off and on for viewing. You must use certified HDMI (HDCP2.2) cables throughout. All equipment purchased via Crutchfield. Awesome advice and support. They do, in fact, want to see you succeed and be satisfied.
Pros: Reliable unit Great performance Many streaming options Exceptional 4K experience Crutchfield advice, support is awesome
Cons: None so far
Good price, good seller, good service,good item,I love it Thanks
Seamless operation, great interface. Works fantastic with Youtube TV among other apps. Love that the remote can operate both the TV and the Roku (which doesn't need line-of-sight). Needed to do a unplug-and replug reboot one time in 2 weeks of ownership though, which seemed weird why it froze like that. Haven't had any issues since, especially when the underwater screensaver comes on.
I have had a cheaper version of Roku, but this one is the best. Works great and easy to use and setup!
Cons: Wish it would skip all commercials
Excellent and on our entertainment center. Easy to setup and use. Great 4K picture and like the apps It also remembers your signin information for streaming Netflix, Hulu, etc. Price was reasonable too.
This is a great product with loads of features. More features than i expected with things like voice search.
Roku Ultra vs Apple/TV 4 K Pros: On Ruku Ultra - Excellent Remote easy to use with no instructions. Fast and excellent on Amazon Video and Netflix on HD (can not evaluate 4 K as using Panasonic 1080 projector). Unacceptable on many other apps like FX. Now making in necessary to reconnect with codes to your internet provider (They need to fix that). Apple/TV 4K Pros: Much easier to use all apps without having to connect with codes to internet provider. (This is the no brainer part to spend the extra money). Same quality picture as Roku Ultra for me Cons: I personally hate the remote. I am still learning how to use it. Apple went backwards. If it had a clicking remote that everyone know how to use or even provided an alternative this would make a great product untouchable. I will never like the Apple TV Remote and if you check on the internet you will find I am not alone. You might ask how do I know. I ordered the Roku Ultra one day and the same day I received as a gift the Apple/TV 4 K. I had the Roku up and running in just a few minutes. It took me a couple of days to get the Apple working to my satisfaction. Problem setting it up I did not know how to use the unfriendly remote and to make things worse I thought I touched (no click) and it set it up in SPANISH. The only way I could get out of that was to RESET the remote and start the process of setting it up again. Roku was much easier.
Picture quality is excellent but there was a serious problem during setup. The setup ask you to also set up the remote to turn on and off your tv. After I followed the directions I used the Roku remote to turn off the tv and it caused muy tv to go to a totally white screen!!! Then a black box came up and said that if I wanted to regain control of my tv I had to do a series of steps. All of my remotes to turn on our off the tv were rendered useless. The box stated that I had to press the INSTOP button on the remote. Of course none of my remotes have this button. Eventually I had to download a universal remote that had this feature to regain and reprogram all of my remotes. Ridiculous!!! This programming/ software issue needs to be solved! By the way my tv is an LG.
Pros: Great picture.
Cons: Programming remote may cause you to lose the ability to turn your tv off and on. Beware!!!
Great upgrade to my new Samsung 4K HDR QLED TV. I've used Roku products for many years - never been disappointed
Pros: Love the 4K movies available
Cons: Seems slow to respond
We purchased this because we had one extra TV upstairs without the streaming device. We installed the Ultra on our main TV and it seems to work much better. There is no interruption of picture and the remote seem much more concise. You can also turn the TV on and off with the remote and adjust the volume. It is worth the extra cost from the standard device.
This is my second Roku ultra. They are easy to set up and easy to navigate through the menu. I like the option of being able to stream wirelessly or wired with an Ethernet cable. I also like the headphone option on the remote.
Pros: Easy set up and great features
well so far so good still looking for some more recent movies to watch like iron man 1-2-3-for free of course--------also some other movies as well no they are no they are not just release movies but old but earlier made movies0like again Thor, 2 movies --scifi movies no not the just release ones-------yea Roku can do that for us media streamers yea good product --fast processor but come on give out those free recent movies & of course local news shows NBC, ABC,CBS, ETC.--in Real time too.. i think this can be done too.
Pros: pretty smooth running device Roku
Cons: need more free recent movies no not the new stuff just released.
Roku is a nice streaming device. I have a very fast internet speed, however this unit seems to take a good amount of time to rap up for movies. I do like the YouTube 4k option.
Pros: Nice unit, fun to use
Cons: Seem like the processor should be faster for the this top model
Easy to set up and great to use
Great upgrade to my new 4K HDR OLED TV. I've used Roku products for many years - never been disappointed.
Pros: Easy setup Works without issues
I bought this product in an attempt to cut the cord from satellite. After discussing with the sales staff and decided I would be able to watch History, Lifetime, A&E, Hallmark, and etc. I purchase this Roku product. Now I have found out that I can't watch any of these channels without having a satellite or cable subscription. I Will be returning this product soon.
I'm using this Roku Ultra 4660R for about one month connected to a 65" Samsung QLED TV. The picture and the sound quality are of another world. It is super-fast at loading channels like Netflix, Amazon, Hulu, etc. I didn't notice any difference when watching a 4K movie on Netflix from the TV or Netflix from Roku. The sound is awesome too. People complaining about better quality from the TV than from Roku are probably using a wrong HDMI cable. You should use a 4K HDR High Speed HDMI 2.0 cable. There are so many channels and hundred thousands of free movies to choose from; so I cancelled my cable subscription. But you still need to spend a few bucks if you want to have sports channels and/or encrypted channels like CNN, HBO... I downloaded Sling and added Sports channels. That's much better than $80-$120 Cable monthly. Until now I don't have any complaint yet.
Pros: Small size, ultra-fast, thousands of free movies and TV shows.
I am really enjoying the Roku Ultra. I have been an apple product user for years but now I'm converted. I had the last model of Apple TV and wanted something with 4k capabilities. This is every bit as user friendly as the Apple tv at half the price. It is easy to setup and meets all of my streaming needs. So far so good with the Roku.
Absolutely love my new Roku Ultra. It was very easy to set up and to use. I bought it to watch Utube and love the voice command for it.
This is my first Roku, and I bought it because I wanted access to 4K HDR streaming and I was not disappointed. It has multiple Apps that can stream 4K, but the ones I use are VUDU, Netflix, and YouTube so I can confirm that these apps can stream 4K HDR. This device was easy to setup and easy to use. The interface is as simple as can be, and I think that is a good thing. Be aware that getting 4K HDR enabled and working properly requires tweaking the settings of the Roku and your display device. The same goes for audio. This device can pass surround sound but getting it working properly requires adjusting the setting of this device as well as your receiver and television depending on your setup. The remote is very ergonomic and responsive. I especially like that it controls the volume of my system. I have the internal speakers of my display device turned off, and use a receiver for sound. So when I adjust the volume, it is actually adjusting my receiver volume, which is what I want of course. I also like that it is app neutral. For example, when you search for a title it lists the services that offer it objectively with the price displayed. I chose the Ultra because I wanted the most powerful device, and my expectations have been met. Not only is It is very responsive to commands and actions, but it is much faster than my Android TV operating system. I am very pleased and could not recommend it more.
Pros: Many options for 4K HDR, excellent picture and sound quality, easy setup and control, remote controls your display device.
It used to work, but now I get the HDR error. I tried 3 different cables and hdmi port on my Samsung un55ks8000 or 800d. Same show works fine using smart tv with out the Roku. Response time, is Slower than I hoped. I have FIOS and it is connected with Ethernet patch cable.

A guess. Not very techi. Have one Roku and like it. [ Janis Dec 24, 2017 ]

Compatibility with new TV [ E Nov 24, 2017 ]
The Roku Ultra 4660R has earphones that plug in the remote and you can listen to your movie without disturbing anyone else in the room. It is also voice activated through the remote, and streams in 4k, and 1080p. [ Bob Nov 06, 2017 ]
Yes it does. Just tried it to make sure. [ Taras A. Oct 20, 2018 ]
Yes [ Craig Oct 20, 2018 ]
The specs says it does, but I have this connected do my Marantz receiver and it controls all, so I don't use this feature. I also use an Apple 4K, but this Roku is my go-to streamer because it has great video and audio, and is easier to use. [ lessthanzero Oct 20, 2018 ]
The newest version has power and volume controls for tv [ Andrew Oct 20, 2018 ]
Yes [ DENNIS Oct 20, 2018 ]
Yes it does if you configure it to control the TV. The remote can power the TV on and off and control the TV volume. [ ANTHONY Oct 20, 2018 ]
Yes and it will also control your tv power on and off function [ wayne Oct 20, 2018 ]
Yes it does. However I have a JBL sound bar and that does not respond to the Roku volume control. And I have not called Critchfield tech support to see if there is a way to do this. [ BETH A Oct 20, 2018 ]
Yes it can control TV nolume [ Joseph Oct 20, 2018 ]
Yes, but I use a Sony amplifier for the sound and use the Sony volume control. [ fred Oct 20, 2018 ]
Thanks for your question. For information on comparing two or more models I would recommend reaching out to an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. They will be able to help determine the differences and help you make the best choice for your system and your budget. [ Krissy Feb 19, 2018 ] Staff
No, the indoor HGTV antenna connects directly to the TV. The Roku also connects to the TV using an available HDMI port, or connects to a home theater receiver using an available HDMI port. [ lessthanzero Nov 25, 2017 ]
No. You have to connect the antenna to the TV. [ ED Nov 25, 2017 ]
There is no listed maximum capacity and no minimum recommended speed requirements for the microSD card. [ Ryan Nov 21, 2017 ] Staff
