As long as you have a Roku HD or Roku 2 you can enjoy 1080p, 7.1 channel video from Vudu.

The folks at Roku have just announced the release date of their streaming stick, which gives you Roku features without taking up any real space in your home theater. It plugs in to an MHL-enabled HDMI slot and is powered from there. It's a pretty slick setup all told.

"The Roku Streaming Stick extends our platform beyond the set- top box and into a range of consumer electronics devices," says SVP Chas Smith. "Manufacturers can now deliver a complete streaming experience without painstakingly building it themselves."

In other news, Vudu streaming has finally come to Roku devices, allowing for high-quality HD streaming through your Roku HD or Roku 2.
