Default Roku 3 supports Miracast?!

So I got an email about the new Roku 3. Says to support Miracast.

I'm going to buy the unit as soon as Walmart carries it. (Most likely to use it for a while and return it since I have a wdtv)

Anyone have plans to buy one? Anyone have one yet? Can't wait for something with real Miracast support so we can use it with out Nexus 4's.

Yeah not bad for $99.

I hope you will let us know if you are able to use miracast on it with your phone.

So does it support miracast out of the box? I thought I read it would be a firmware update at a later time.

Default Re: Roku 3 supports Miracast

Roku didnít want to comment about Miracast at the time and didnít mention the technology in its Roku 3 press material. However, both the Streaming Stick and the new Roku 3 support Wi-Fi Direct, a technology Miracast is based on, so we shouldnít be too surprised to see both get a Miracast update some time in the near future.
