Specs on Roku Premium Cable - is it HDCP 2.2?

What are the specs on Roku's "Premium HDMI cable"?  Sure, the Roku site says their Premium cable will work on x,y,z Roku models. But it doesn't say if the cable is HDCP 2.2  - that is what I want. I can't find anywhere if the Roku Premium cable is indeed HDCP 2.2.

I'm sure someone will correct me if I'm wrong, but HDCP has nothing to do with which cable you use.  The various HDMI versions do and you need a version that supports HDCP 2.2 (HDMI 2.0 or higher?), but you won't necessarily see HDCP specified for a cable.

Re: Specs on Roku Premium Cable - is it HDCP 2.2?

Thanks renojim. There's many versions of HDMI cables and I need a version that supports HDCP 2.2.  I just ordered a Roku Ultra from BH Video and added an HMDI cable where the specs specifically say it supports  HDCP 2.2. It's probable that the Ultra Premium Cable that comes with the unit supports 2.2, but Roku doesn't say so (that I could find). 

I buy what I need, I don't buy via guessing and hoping.   Got my new LG TV having the necessary specs and currently shopping for a soundbar (Definitive Technology brand so far). Everything in the AV chain (aka HDMI cable) needs to have the same capability for the quality I'm interested Thx again!
