I've reviewed pretty much every streamer you can buy right now, and my current favorite is the . And now it's cheaper than ever.
As spotted by Cord Cutters News, Roku has permanently dropped the price from $50 to $40.
The USB stick-sized device serves up Netflix, Amazon, YouTube and thousands of other apps quickly and easily, and fits discreetly behind your TV. It's fast enough compared to the $30 to be easily worth the price difference, and a better value, especially now, than Roku's 4K boxes like the $70 .
Unlike the $35, it includes a real remote and on-screen menus, and can stream Amazon video. I also like Roku better than the $40 because its interface doesn't favor one content provider over another.
The Roku stick is almost 16 months old, but it's still a current product. When I asked whether it would be replaced soon, a Roku representative declined to comment.
