Is Upgrade Offer Roku® Standard IR Remote the entire solution?

Jump to solution

Received a notice from Roku that my Roku2XD is obsolete and need to replace it. Almost simultaneously received a special offer from Roku for a Roku® Standard IR Remote for $14.99, stating that it works with my Roku2XD. This is confusing.

Can anyone tell me who has responded to the special offer whether purchasing the upgraded Roku® Standard IR Remote solves entirely the problem of obsolete equipment? By purchasing it, does it mean that the Roku2 XD will continue to work properly on into the future? Or is it better to simply go out into the marketplace and purchase a Roku Express, which includes an upgraded Roku device and new remote together for approximately $30? Any help will be appreciated.

The upgrade page is just advertising, same everyday price. A new remote will not suddenly make your obsolete roku up to date and good for the future. You need a new roku, which will come with a new remote no need to purchase separately.
