Xbox One S (Click here for Amazon Pricing) supports 4K HDR and could be a good match for 4K HDR enabled streaming media players like the Roku Ultra (Click here for pricing on Amazon) especially if you want to enjoy the Roku experience and access its vast library of media channels.

To use the Roku Ultra with the Xbox One S, first make sure that your Xbox One S is powered on and connected to the TV via the HDMI OUT port. Then connect the Roku Ultra to Xbox One S's HDMI IN port. Once all systems are on, you should see the Xbox One S startup window. 

To use the Roku Ultra, you will have to scroll down to the TV tile at the bottom. 

Upon clicking TV, the Roku Ultra will be ready for use. 

Next you need to make sure that your Roku Ultra is connected to the Internet. 

To set up network, go to Settings -> Network -> Wireless -> Update Connection -> select any available WI-FI Network. In our case, it was already set up.

Roku has one of the most extensive collection of streaming channels so you need to find and add the channels that you want to see.  Even popular channels like YouTube must be added manually.

The Roku Ultra works with the Xbox One S and later we will see whether the Xbox can actually pass through the Roku's 4K HDR content up to a 4K HDR TV.
