Amazon offers the latest Roku Streaming Stick (model 3600R, 2016) for $39.99 shipped. Also available at Best Buy. This is a 20% savings off the regular price, $1 more than the Amazon all-time low and the best offer currently available.
The 2016 Roku Streaming Stick offers a quad-core processor that is “8x more powerful” in comparison to the previous generation. It also has dual-band wireless, HDMI connectivity and it ships with a remote. The free smartphone app brings private listening via your own headphones (perfect for the bedroom!). Of course, you’ll have access to all of the popular streaming services and “350,000+ movies and TV episodes.” This is the #1 best selling TV and Video product at Amazon with a 4.3/5 star rating from over 2,600 reviewers.
You’ll note that Roku’s latest Express set-top boxes are a slightly less expensive way to enter the ecosystem, but those products do require an external power source and HDMI cable. The Streaming Stick leverages your HDTV’s USB port instead and has slimmer footprint.
Even better? Roku is currently offering a free two-month subscription to Hulu, Showtime and CBS All-Access on any streaming media player or TV purchased and activated before January 14th. Learn more here (new account required).
