Roku Stick Stories June 14, 2015

Of the major HDMI stick media players, Amazon’s Fire TV Stick is the one that we see the least amount of deals for. Sure there was the insane $20 launch promo and the free offer with Sling TV (still available), but aside from those deals there really hasn’t been any other opportunity to grab one at a discounted price. However, it looks like Amazon wants its diminutive streaming media player in the hands of dads this Father’s Day since it has just dropped down to $34 at Amazon, Best Buy, and Staples.

Chromecast is usually the go-to choice when it comes to streaming sticks, but Amazon Fire TV offers a couple features that Google’s player doesn’t: Fire TV Stick has a robust 8GB of storage for downloading games/apps, a dedicated physical remote control, and integrated voice search. It’s also really popular with buyers having garnered a 4.2 out of 5 star rating from 42,197 reviewers. expand full story

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:

The Roku Streaming Stick works offers much of the same options as its boxed counterparts, except this is just a Chromecast style (and sized) HDMI dongle that remains hidden on the backside of your display. It features 1080p streaming and access to more than 1000+ entertainment channels including HBO Go, Netflix, Amazon Instant Video, live sports and many more.

Purchasing and activating a Roku device before Sept. 30, 2014, will net you 2 months of free Hulu Plus as well. You’ll also get the remote and the free mobile control apps, for quick access to your favorite channels.
