expiredRoku 3 Streaming Media Player with Voice Search (refurb): $70 shipped (Orig. $100)

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. The Roku 3 fits right in the sweet spot of pricing between the upcoming low-cost SE model and the new high-end Roku 4.

Rated 4.4/5 stars from 1,355 Amazon customers. A 90-day warranty from Roku is included with purchase.

Grab a handy mount or an extra HDMI cable (not included) with your savings.

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:

discounts are also available via Roku.com:

expiredPick up the new Roku 3 streaming media player w/ voice search for $85 shipped (Reg. $100)

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.

Review: Does Sling TV’s arrival on the Xbox One make Microsoft’s console king of the living room?

Comments (0)

There are a lot of reasons to be excited about Sling TV. Since it popped up in January just before CES, this streaming television service has been making waves throughout the entertainment world. Chances are if you watch television shows or movies, you’ve heard something about Sling.

Last month Dish brought its online streaming service to the Xbox One in an exclusive agreement that nets Live subscribers a one month free trial. The question is, does Sling bring enough to the table to make the Xbox One a complete solution to home entertainment? expand full story

expiredRoku’s flagship streaming media player is on sale for $77 shipped (Reg. $100)

Update (3/11 8:10am): Newegg has the refurbished Roku 3 streaming media player w/ headphones & game remote (4200XB) for $62.95 shipped. That’s $14 under the below Amazon deal and the best refurbished price we can find.

Amazon offers the Roku 3 streaming media player for $76.99 with free shipping. As a pricing comparison, we saw it drop a few dollars less during the holidays last year, but outside of that sale, today’s price is the lowest we’ve ever seen. It retails for $99.99, however it’s worth nothing Roku direct has currently dropped its price down to $79.99.

Generally considered one of the most versatile and powerful streaming players on the market, the Roku 3 features “5x faster processor, extended-range wireless,” and access to more than 1,800 channels of movies, TV shows, and more.

You can save even more on the Roku 3 if you sign up for 3 months of Sling TV.

Sling TV is barreling down on cable TV like a freight train. Not only is this innovative service currently the best way for cord cutters to get select TV stations, but now Sling TV has landed on Fire TV and will offer free streaming devices.

When you prepay three months of Sling TV service ($60), you’ll be able to grab an Amazon Fire TV Stick ($39 value) or Roku Streaming Stick ($50 value) for free. If you’d rather get a full streaming box, then you can also opt to save 50% on an Amazon Fire TV ($99 value) or Roku 3 ($100 value).

Here’s how Amazon is handling the promo:

  1. Sign up for your subscription on the Sling TV website and prepay three months of Sling TV service.
  2. After signing up, you will receive a promotion code that can be used for $50 off Amazon Fire TV or a free Fire TV Stick.
  3. Copy the promotional code, go to www.amazon.com/redeemslingtvoffer, and add one Amazon Fire TV or Fire TV Stick to your shopping cart.
  4. Proceed to check out. Paste or enter the promotional code in the “Enter a gift card or promotion code” field, click the ‘Apply’ button and complete your order.
  5. When your device arrives, simply plug it in, connect to the internet, and start enjoying instantly.

We haven’t heard any specific instructions from Roku as to how you can redeem its offer, but you should be able to simply sign up via Sling.

Looking to learn more about Sling TV? Head over to our complete coverage of this cord cutters dream. Or maybe your hesitant to commit to three months of service? Sling TV is currently offering a free seven-day trial of its service for those interested in taking a look first.

Long gone are the days of a traditional movie renting experience. No longer do we have to travel for miles in the snow just to pick up a rental for movie night.
