- The Roku Ultra can access more TV shows and movies in 4K and HDR than most rival devices. It has the most features of any Roku streamer, and unlike the Chromecast Ultra, it actually includes a remote (and an Amazon Video app). Roku's ecosystem offers more apps, better search, and more customization than any other. The optical audio output means you can use it with older receivers and sound bars
- It's more expensive than the Roku Premiere+. Content in 4K and HDR is still uncommon, and your HDR TV probably already has compatible apps. Unlike some of those TVs, the Ultra doesn't work with Dolby Vision HDR. Some app interfaces are less polished than on rival devices.
