Groupon offers the manufacturer refurbished Roku 3 Streaming Media Player (4230R) with Voice Search for $69.99 shipped. This is a savings of $30 off the original listing, $28 less than Amazon’s new condition listing and the best current price we can find.

This is the best price that we have seen on Roku’s streaming media player with voice search since it was released earlier this year. Features include universal search, over 2,000 streaming channels, one press access to Netflix, Hulu and Amazon Instant Video, plus the aforementioned voice search and a headphone jack for private listening.

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:

Target offers the recently released Roku 3 (4230R) streaming media player with voice search for $84.99 shipped (price reflected in cart). This is the first discount that we’ve seen on the newly upgraded model, its regular list price is $99.99 at retailers such as Amazon.

Building on the strength of the popular previous generation Roku 3, this new model has voice search capability and the ‘Roku Feed’ which tracks content, availability and pricing. The new enhanced remote control allows users to find new content simply by speaking, which is activated by pressing a button on the remote. Roku offers over 2,000 streaming channels, from Sling TV, Netflix, Hulu Plus and more.

By adding voice search, Roku has placed itself out in front of the pack at this point.

Roku announces new features and upgrades to its line of streaming media players

Today, Roku has announced slight performance and feature upgrades to its Roku 3 and 2 models, as well as a new search and discover platform. The Roku Feed allows consumers to track entertainment and receive updates when new content is released or goes on sale. Users will be able to search for shows, actors or directors and receive a curated list of results arranged by price. Roku will automatically push this feature out to devices.

The Roku 3 has added a new voice search capability, which allows for users to use the new enhanced remote control to find new content simply by speaking. The updated controller includes a new button to activate the voice search. This feature puts the Roku 3 in-line with Amazon Fire‘s own voice recognition feature.

Meanwhile, the Roku 2 gets a speed bump, receiving the processor previously only available for the Roku 3. It essentially is the flagship model without the enhanced remote.

Pricing remains untouched, although we frequently see discounts on both models. The Roku 3 is available via Amazon for $84.99, while the Roku 2 ships for $64.99.
