Though the world got an unauthorized sneak peek at it last week via Engadget, Roku officially unveiled its new HD-XR player today, along with a new entry-level set-top box at a lower cost.

The new Roku HD-XR adds 80211.n wireless support (the regular HD Roku supports 802.11b and g). The new HD-XR also has a USB port “for future use,” according to a Roku rep. The Roku HD-XR will run you $129.99, with the existing HD player remaining at $99.99.

The company also today introduced the low-end Roku SD, which only supports SD streaming and has no HDMI, component, S-Video or Optical audio outputs, and costs just $79.99.

We haven’t had a chance to put the HD-XR through its paces yet, but you can enjoy these lovely product shots!
