Roku Streaming Stick ($50)

Looking for the best gift for a father who enjoys watching TV and video at home? Whether it's Netflix or Amazon or any of thousands of other streaming apps, Roku delivers the best, easiest, most customer-friendly experience for him. And the new Stick is still the best value among Rokus.

Roku Ultra ($130)

Maybe Dad is the sophisticated type who owns a 4K TV and an AV receiver, and can appreciate the value of extras like voice search using the remote and the ability to plug in headphones for wireless private listening. If so, he'll appreciate the Ultra.

Roku Express+ ($40)

On the other hand, maybe pop has an older TV (one without any HDMI inputs) he wants to hook up to Netflix. Grab him an Express+ and pocket the savings.

Apple TV ($150)

If Dad has a bunch of stuff on iTunes, or he just wants something that looks and feels a lot like his iPhone, the new Apple TV is just the ticket. In addition to numerous TV apps, it also works with many of the games and other apps he might already own.

Amazon Fire TV Stick with Alexa Voice Remote ($40)

And maybe Dad is an Amazon dude, with a Prime account and plenty of movies and TV shows he's bought already from the mega-retailer. Or maybe he just loves his Alexa enough to want it on a TV, too. If so he might love the streaming stick, and you'll love the price.

Google Chromecast ($35)

Phone-savvy dads who are most comfortable using the small screen will find a lot to like in the cheap Chromecast, which suddenly lets them enjoy all those videos on the biggest screen in the house.

TCL Roku TV ($190 and up)

If Dad doesn't want to bother with a separate remote and switching inputs to watch streaming, maybe it's time for a new TV. The TCL models are inexpensive and deliver all the awesomeness of Roku's external devices.

Vizio M series ($650 and up)

Maybe it's time for Dad to get a new "main" TV. Our current favorite for the money is the excellent M series, a 4K model with a great picture and a wide range of sizes to choose from.

LG OLEDC7P series

Dad deserves the very best, and maybe you have the money to make it happen. This is actually the least-expensive 2017 OLED TV in the company's lineup, but its picture quality still runs circles around most other TVs.

Want to save a little and still get Dad an OLED? The 2016 models are still available, and they cost a lot less.
