Here are the top Roku devices on sale as of Jan. 27:
Admit it, you’ve probably been watching a LOT of TV. Being at home all the time is grounds for the beginning of a Netflix, Hulu, and HBO Max obsession, so why not take your streaming habit to the next level? If you’ve been fiddling with HDMI cords from your laptop, or juggling all the different streaming pages, make it easier on yourself with a Roku device.
These devices are all on sale as of Jan. 27, and they can help you compile your streaming services to one interface, boost your picture quality, and some of them double as loud, clear soundbars, too. Check out our top picks to find the one that’s right for your TV habits.
For high-quality streaming, clear audio, and smart controls at a reasonable price, the Streambar is your best bet. Watch your favourite shows and movies in HD, 4K, and HDR with colour optimized for any TV. The Streambar has four internal speakers with Dolby Audio technology, so you’ll get loud, rich sound for a pretty good value. While you won’t experience the theater-quality sound of the Roku Smart Soundbar, the Streambar does have boosted volume and speech clarity to enhance the listening experience. The included voice remote will replace all your other remotes — you can change the channel, adjust volume, and search for new series to watch with just one remote.
Along with being able to access all your favourite streaming sites from one interface, this device also comes with three free months of Apple TV+, so you can get to binge-watching immediately.
If you’re an audiophile that needs high quality sound while streaming, go for the Roku Smart Soundbar. It has four full-range speakers inside, for deep bass and all-around dynamic sound that will give you the movie-theater treatment at home, just add popcorn. You’ll also be able to customize sound with the speech clarity function, and get rid of extra-loud commercials forever with consistent volume leveling. The Roku Smart Soundbar supports 4K streaming, gives you access to free TV, live sports, and more, and comes with a voice remote to make changing the channel even easier.
To improve TV picture and move all your streaming sites to one interface without worrying about sound, the Roku Ultra LT is a solid choice. It supports HD, 4K, or HDR picture, and the quad-core processor will keep everything you’re watching smooth and clear — no more pixelated TV shows. The Ultra LT comes with an ethernet port for even more secure streaming, and features a microSD port to give you extra storage space. You’ll get access to the Roku channel for free live TV, sports, shows, and more, and this set even comes with a pair of headphones so you can crank up those sports without bothering the whole household. You can get three months of Apple TV+ with this device, too.
