Roku’s 4.8 firmware, which started rolling out Thursday, comes with an interesting new feature. From the announcement blog post:
“Expanded language support, adding Spanish and German to the user interface (To change your language, just go to Settings from the Roku home screen.)”
Roku previously only supported English and French. We reported earlier this week that Roku’s website contained traces of an expansion to Spain and Germany. A company spokesperson didn’t want to comment on its plans for continental Europe at the time, but Roku definitely took notice: The revealing HTML code snippets have since disappeared.
