New Streaming Stick plugs right into a HDMI port

Taking direct aim at Google’s $35 Chromecast, Roku has announced that a new version of its Streaming Stick is now available. The new version plugs directly into an empty HDMI port on your TV. Roku says that the new version of the Streaming Stick is perfect for wall mounted TVs.
 
The device has 1200 channels of movies, TV, music, news, kids shows and more. It supports resolutions up to 1080p and has a TV user interface with Roku Search integrated. The new Streaming Stick also ships with a Wi-Fi remote control (unlike the Chromecast). The remote has buttons for directly accessing Netflix, Amazon, Blockbuster, and MGo.

 
Apps for Android and iOS smartphones are also supported.
 
The updated Streaming Stick is available now in the U.S. for pre-order at $49.99. The device will be available in retail stores in April.

I thought they quit streaming. I remember getting an email from them a year or two ago saying I would no longer be able to stream movies from them. Maybe it was just for my device (Blu-Ray player), but I thought it sounded like they were closing up shop.
