Still on the hunt for that perfect holiday gift? Well time is running out, but Amazon has a great deal on a new Roku Streaming Stick. This is the 2017 model, and it does not support 4K content, so you're looking at 1080p only here. Which is still good because most TV's do still support 1080p and there's still not a ton of content in 4K just yet.
The Roku Streaming Stick is a good option this holiday season since it is under $50, but also because it can make any TV a smart one. Simply plug it into the back of the TV – and it is light enough to get power from the TV's USB port – and you'll have access to a ton of different apps and games. This includes the likes of Amazon Prime Video, DIRECTV NOW, HBO GO, YouTube, Google Play Movies & TV, and so many more. There are over 500,000 movies and TV shows available on the Roku platform. So no matter who is left on your list this year, the Roku Streaming Stick is a great option.
This item is also eligible for Amazon Prime's free shipping. Which includes free two-day shipping, and pretty cheap next-day shipping if you need it here extra fast. If you are not an Amazon Prime member yet, you can sign up for a free trial of Amazon Prime by hitting the link below. You'll get 30 days free (if you're a student, you get 6 months), and then it's $99/year. Prime members do get a whole lot more than just free shipping though, so be sure to check out the full benefits. Remember that if you are looking to pick this up as a gift for someone this holiday season, you'll need to order it by December 18th for non-Prime shipping, and if you are a Prime member, you have until December 22nd, to get it in time for the Holidays. Amazon does also offer extended returns for anything purchased before December 31st, can be returned until January 31st, 2018.
