This is sadly still true.  You would think it's a trivial add in the year 2021, especially as the big media providers (Google, Netflix, etc.) all support and prefer it.

Re: Does Roku Support IPv6?

It's something that will need to be added eventually, but for now there's likely not an immediate need for it. Since Roku devices are never connected directly to the Internet, the user's router can handle the internal IPv4 traffic without much bother. Based on an article I just read, it's likely going to be close to 2050 before the world is fully IPv6. I think we have some time...
