Black Friday is all about snagging the best deal on popular products. To help you know more about what you're buying, and to help you make the most educated choice possible, here's what you need to know about the Roku Streaming Stick.
Roku Streaming Stick details
The Roku Streaming Stick is a streaming service device that you connect directly to your TV’s HDMI slot to access dozens of media streaming apps. Regularly included streaming services such as Netflix, Hulu, Amazon, NBC, CBS, HBO Now, Showtime, ABC, and Youtube become instantly accessible via your tv. This means it doesn’t matter if your television is considered a smart tv or not, the Roku Stick will bring everything you need to stream directly to your tv.
The stick features a remote control that accesses the stick and allows the user to handle fast forwarding, pausing, volume control and service control. The Roku Streaming Stick cannot streak videos in 4k, though the most recent model called the Roku Streaming Stick+ does handle various applications for 4k accessibility.
Roku Streaming Stick deals
The Roku Streaming Stick brings simple streaming solutions to one small device that only requires an internet connection and a Roku account to start working. The device is not overly expensive, falling in regularly at only $50. In October 2018, Amazon dropped the price temporarily down to only $40. The Roku Streaming Stick+ streams 4k and runs $69.
Several different retailers had the various Roku products on sale during Black Friday last year, including Roku.com, which featured the Roku Streaming Stick+ at only $49. With yet another sale happening in October 2018, it should be very likely that the Roku Streaming Stick will see a major discount for either Cyber Monday or Black Friday.
