The Editor's Choice Roku Streaming Stick 4K is one of the best streaming devices on the market. In our Roku Streaming Stick Plus review, we loved its simple, streamlined interface and the fact that it gives you access to hundreds of channels like HBO, Hulu, Netflix, Prime Video, and more.
While most of the apps are too niche to be worth your time, the important thing is that Roku has the widest variety of apps you'll actually want to use compared to any other streaming platform. And unlike the Amazon Fire TV Stick, it doesn't give any service preferential treatment over others.
In terms of performance, the Roku Streaming Stick 4K is more powerful than Roku's 1080p stick. During our test streams, content stabilized at 1080p within 5 seconds on a standard home Wi-Fi network, while reaching 4K resolutions on an office Wi-Fi network took about 10 or 15 seconds. Again, this may or may not be representative of what the Roku could do in your home, but if your connection is up to the task of delivering 4K HDR content, so is the Streaming Stick Plus.
