Walmart has unsurprisingly been going all in with this Black Friday, discounting consumer electronics left and right, with the Roku Streaming Stick+ being the latest product to receive such treatment. Starting today, Roku's 4K offering is available from Walmart for $48, more than 30 percent off its regular price of $69. Being a relatively new release, this is the lowest the Roku Streaming Stick+ has ever been going for and that record isn't likely to be broken anytime soon. As is usually the case with Walmart's electronics deals, no specific expiry date has been provided in regards to this discount, suggesting the offer is valid so long as supplies last. That still doesn't leave you with much time to make a purchase decision, with the Black Friday craze already being in full swing and affordable gadgets going out of stock in a matter of minutes, especially the ones from established companies like Roku.
As for the product itself, the Roku Streaming Stick+ is a device that you'll find near the top of virtually every list of streaming hardware recommendations in 2017, with the gadget offering an excellent value-to-money ratio, providing you with a comprehensive solution for streaming content on your TV without committing to any significant investments. The device even comes with a versatile remote controller that supports voice commands, whereas you can also connect it to your smartphone via a dedicated Android or iOS app. Still, with simplicity being the name of the game here, all you really need to start using the Roku Streaming Stick+ is plug it into your TV, whereas all of its other connectivity features are just an added bonus for more demanding users.
Walmart's latest offer includes free two-day shipping, meaning you can still get your hands on the heavily discounted Roku Streaming Stick+ by the end of the month, whereas the retailer is also offering a two-year protection plan for a low one-time fee of $6. Finally, you're getting a month of DIRECTV NOW and 30 days of SHOWTIME with your purchase free of charge. All things considered, this is a great offer that can mark your entry point into cord-cutting and prove to be an excellent long-term investment, or just serve as a fantastic and inexpensive gift for someone who's finally ready to ditch cable.
