The Roku Streaming Stick is currently on sale over at Amazon for just $39.99. That is good for $10 off of its regular price, and also brings it back down to its all-time low – which was last seen just a few weeks ago. This is a great time to pick up the Roku Streaming Stick, if you are looking to jump into the Roku ecosystem.
With the Roku Streaming Stick, you'll instantly have access to hundreds of thousands of different apps and games. There are over 500,000 movies and TV shows available on Roku, through different apps and services. All of the usual names are there, like YouTube, Google Play Movies & TV, Netflix, Hulu, HBO GO, DIRECTV NOW and many more. With the Roku Streaming Stick, you are going to get 1080p Full HD quality here, not 4K but still pretty good quality out of this one. It does not have an ethernet port, so you will have to rely on its WiFi connection. So it'll be a good idea to keep it near your router so that it doesn't run into issues. Since it's just a streaming stick, it's great for those that don't have room for a set-top box, but it does still need external power, and cannot be plugged into the USB port on your TV.
This item is also eligible for Amazon Prime's free shipping. Which includes free two-day shipping, and pretty cheap (usually $3.99) next-day shipping if you need it extra fast. If you are not an Amazon Prime member yet, you can sign up for a free trial of Amazon Prime. You'll get 30 days free (if you're a student, you get 6 months), and then it's $99/year (or $49/year for students). Prime members do get a whole lot more than just free shipping though, so be sure to check out the full benefits.
