Save Your Marriage With The Help Of A TV Remote With Earbuds

 Save Your Marriage With The Help Of A TV Remote With Earbuds

An innovative solution to all-too-common bedroom problems is being offered by an Internet-connected streaming media box.

The Roku 3's remote control features a headphone jack and volume buttons on the side, so as soon you plug in a pair of earbuds, the sound from the TV mutes and plays through the remote, the Huffington Post reported.


This works for any content you watch through your Roku. If you pop your headphones into the remote, you'll be able to hear your program in your ears without disturbing your sleeping spouse (or anyone else in your home, either).

The Roku 3 will ship with purple earbuds and will cost 99 dollars on either the Roku website or Amazon.com.

In a landscape where many streaming media boxes feature the same basic video services, Roku's addition of a "private listening" mode could differentiate it from the herd.

The newest Roku didn't just add earbuds, of course. In addition to the nifty remote control, Roku has also updated its media streamer with a faster processor and stronger Wi-Fi for more reliable performance.

The interface has also been redesigned and simplified, supplying what Roku execs said was faster and more intuitive discovery of content than on any other device.

The remote also contains a motion sensor, so that you can use it to play games like Angry Birds using your remote as a tool, much like the Nintendo Wii's Wiimote controller.

The Roku 3 will also work with the Roku app for iOS and Android, which allows a user to control the Roku via smartphone or tablet, just in case you lose that little remote.

That app also lets you play photos or music (but not video) from your device through your television, similar to the way iOS devices allow you to "mirror" your content from iPhone or iPad through the Apple TV onto the big screen.
