While those of us in the United States have been enjoying how easy the Roku line of products make it to stream content to our TVs for a few years now, folks in other countries haven’t gotten in on the fun yet.  Luckily that will be changing for at least a few people in 2012.

The folks over at Roku announced that they will be expanding the sales to the United Kingdom and Canada in the new year.  There’s no word as of yet as to which models will be available, but they are opening up their developer program to people in those countries who wish to start work on their apps.  As with the United States, the content can be free, ad supported or paid.  With Netflix already in Canada and coming to the UK in the not so distant future, that seems like a no-brainer to be one of the first apps out of the gate.

Details on the models, pricing and where you can buy one from will be released at a later date.

Are you excited to see the Roku finally coming to your country?
