GoPro Channel brings its sport and action-cam adventures to Roku

Look, there's no shame in watching others skydive or rappel instead of doing it yourself. So if you have a Roku, fire it up and and prepare to live vicariously through GoPro-toting adrenaline junkies, because the adventure camera's channel is arriving on the media player "this spring." Just like the older versions for Xbox 360, LG smart TVs and Virgin America's in-flight entertainment systems, GoPro for Roku will show on-demand original content and featured/curated videos from users. It will also note which camera model and accessories was used to capture a particular video clip, just in case you decide to get off your computer chair and decide to live a little.

If you're already a thrill seeker with a GoPro Hero4, though, you may want to monitor your cameras instead of the screen. The newest firmware that comes with a bunch of useful features is landing on your devices today, too. Those features include time lapses' auto-conversion to video and a 30-picture burst photo setting, and 2.7k video at 60 fps (Black edition only, sadly) so we wouldn't be surprised if you're already planning another trip to test them out.

PS: In case numbers, earnings and the stock market excite you more than parasailing and bungee jumping (no judgement here), the company will also deliver its financials today for the first time since going public.
