Roku Looks Beyond the Set-Top Box - NYTimes.com

In case you’re out of shelf space and/or power outlets

Roku is announcing a plan on Wednesday to get rid of the box entirely.

The company is developing a product called the Roku Streaming Stick, a device that will be about the size of one of those miniature thumb drives you plug into a PC to back up documents and other files. The stick, which slips unobtrusively into an HDMI jack on the back of a TV, provides all of the same access to Roku’s video programming partners that one can get from a Roku box but without an extra piece of hardware dangling from the set by an umbilicus.
