A brand-new streaming device could be the perfect Father's Day gift to keep your dad entertained this year during whatever version of a lockdown summer he's likely to experience. From YouTube to Netflix to Disney Plus, streaming video is the center of today's home entertainment, and there's a wide world of content to explore -- especially if your dad is accessing it for the first time. Even better, even if Dad doesn't want to give up on his older TV, there are more ways than ever to access that wealth of content -- there's way more out there these days than a Fire stick.

So if you're still looking for the best TV and streaming device for Fathers Day, read on for our favorites for every budget.

Part streaming box, part soundbar, the Roku Smart Soundbar is perfect for updating older TVs. At $200 it's pretty affordable for what it does and it offers both ease of use and further expandability (rear speakers, subwoofer) down the road.

If your Dad has set up a bunch of Amazon Echo Dots in the house, it makes sense to pair this with a TV that he can use them to control. This Toshiba offers the Fire TV interface in a relatively affordable TV with Alexa control built right into the remote.
