Roku's growing popularity is has become extra evident now that the Roku HD set-top box will be sold at Best Buy locations nationwide.
The Roku XD has shipped direct to consumers up until this point, so this announcement is a bit of a milestone for the streaming player company. (Other Roku models can already be found at Fry's, Radio Shack and other tech stores.)
Even though it is headed to a mega-retailer, pricing for the Roku HD will stay put at $79.99 (not including shipping and taxes). The home entertainment device is available at Best Buy now.
In case you're not familiar with the Roku HD, it's an Internet-connected device that supports 720p/1080p HD video streaming, HDMI connectivity and works with "virtually any" SD and HD television.
