Roku should include a gigabit Ethernet port

There are many reasons (present and future) to have a gigabit Ethernet port on the Roku. Just to mention a few: adding channels, updating channels and firmware updates. Not to mention future technology. I will not buy devices that have the old 10/100 Fast Ethernet ports. What does Roku save using this old technology? $1? Charge me an extra $1. I want gigabit ports on all my devices regardless.

Apple TV has it. You can get one of those. They work well.

Roku, will make a gigabit device when streaming across the internet requires a gigabit connection. 100mbs a second is plenty fast to stream 4k on multiple devices.
