Here's something you probably didn't know: May 14 is National Streaming Day. Both Amazon and Roku are celebrating the occasion with week-long price cuts on some of our favorite Roku players.
Roku's streaming devices get top marks because they offer a wide variety of content accompanied by a slick, no-nonsense interface. The Roku devices on sale include:
- Roku Streaming Stick for $39.99 ($10 off)
- Roku Streaming Stick+ 4K for $49 ($20 off)
- Roku Premiere+ 4K for $79.70 ($10 off)
- Roku Ultra 4K for $89 ($10 off)
If you're strapped for cash — or upgrading a secondary TV — it's hard to beat the Roku Streaming Stick. Normally priced at $49.99, it's currently on sale for $39.99. The Roku Streaming Stick is a 1080p streamer, and unlike Amazon's Fire TV Stick,it doesn't give preferential treatment to any channels or content. Amazon's Stick tends to showcase Amazon content above others.
For newer TVs that support 4K resolution, you'll want to upgrade to one of Roku's 4K players. The differences are subtle as you move up the ladder, but the standalone set-top boxes like the Premiere+ 4K and Ultra 4K add an Ethernet port, microSD support, and a headphone jack for private listening mode, whereas the Streaming Stick lacks the ports.
National Streaming Day lasts for 24 hours only, but the deals will be available all week.
