Roku Ultra 4660R - enhanced "point anywhere" remote with voice search and headphone jack for personal TV
Item # 4214660R | MFR # 4660R
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.

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.
