expiredRoku discounts each of its streaming media players by $10, new Roku 3 w/ voice search down to $90 shipped

Early last month Roku updated its streaming media player lineup. The top-of-the-line Roku 3 gained voice search and the Roku 2 was the recipient of a generous processor bump that brought it in-line with the performance of its big brother. Roku 3 is generally considered to be the best streaming media player on the market thanks to its exorbitant amount of content and feature-packed remote, even by avid Apple fans.

All of Roku’s streaming media players are getting $10 discounts on Amazon. Most notably the Roku 3 is down to $89.99. We briefly saw it hit $85 right after it was released, but there haven’t been any discounts since. Here are all of the deals:

Roku 1 Stories January 6, 2014

Roku, maker of the most popular streaming player in America, has just announced its plans to release an actual TV. Through a partnership with TCL and Hisense, the Roku TV will have Roku’s software baked-in and includes a simple 20-button remote control. Users’ smart devices will also be able to be used to navigate the TV. Roku players boast the most streaming content and the new TV sets will be no different:

Just like Roku streaming players, Roku TV will have full access to the Roku Channel Store filled with more than 31,000 movies and 1,200 channels that feature TV shows and live sports plus news, music, kids, food, science, tech, fitness, foreign language and other programming

Smart TVs have traditionally lacked a great user interface so hopefully the Roku TV will buck that trend and deliver an improved TV experience.

Roku TV will be available this fall in sizes ranging from 32 to 55 inches. No pricing information was available at press time.roku-1-deal

In the meantime, you can take advantage of a special offer to get streaming media on your current TV right now. Get a Roku 1 player for just $49.99. That’s only $2 over the best price ever. expand full story

Roku 1 Stories September 25, 2013

Roku has just announced a refreshed line up of devices, that includes updated models of its lower end streaming boxes. While the Roku 3 has been leading the way in the set-top box market place alongside the Apple TV, today the company announced the new Roku LT as well as the Roku 1 and Roku 2 which will replace the Roku HD and Roku 2 XD (via Wired).

The new models will come along with all the content the boxes normally come with, including access to over 1000 different content channels or apps from within the Roku Channel Store. With access to apps like Amazon Instant Video and Crackle, many feel this is where the platform carries an interesting advantage over Apple TV.

Another interesting addition to the system is the M-Go video service partnership the company has now announced. It appears as though Roku is stepping into the content space without having to implement its own content service. With M-Go, users can rent or purchase movies and TV Shows with the purchases connected to your existing Roku account.

Roku LT-Roku 1-Roku 2-M-Go-movies-01

Pre-orders are available now for the new Roku boxes on the official site and through Amazon, with units expected to hit store shelves in October. The 720p Roku LT starts at $50, the 1080p Roku 1 will be available for $60 and the $80 Roku 2 comes with 1080p, dual-band wireless options, and a slick little headphone jack in the remote. Even though the new models don’t come with the motion-control remote and the Ethernet port like the Roku 3 (which is currently $5 off on Amazon), the company has added composite input options to make up for it.
