Jump to solution

Just got the new soundbar. Haven't set up yet. Will it REPLACE my current Roku 3?

Probably not toss, just re-purpose. For example, I received a new Ultra, and I put it where I had been using my Premiere. The Premiere is now in my suitcase for traveling, and my Grandson is now using the Stick that used to be in the suitcase. 

Your Roku 3 is still supported, and so far is still capable of using the latest channels, such as Disney+. Unless you have zero use for it anywhere else in your home, I'd hang on to it. But if you have no use, do a factory reset (to remove all your personal info) and give it to someone that could still use it. It's really not worth the effort to try to sell it, as it would likely only get you $10 or so. Smiley Very Happy

Yes, the Roku Smart Soundbar contains a Roku player within it. Since it support 4K/HDR, that makes it at minimum equal to the Premiere. There's no Ethernet jack, so WiFi only. But it would be a significant improvement over the Roku 3 in performance.
