Amazon is discounting the Roku Streaming Stick+ today, bringing the price down to just $54. That is good for $15 off of the regular price. This is the usual discounted price for the Roku Streaming Stick+ which is also its lowest price all-time. And that makes this a really good price for the Streaming Stick+ and more than worthwhile to pick up.
The Roku Streaming Stick+ is a great stick to pick up since it is small and is able to hide behind your TV. But it also supports 4K and HDR. Now while the Fire TV Stick that is also on sale – and about half the price – only supports up to 1080p quality, the Roku Streaming Stick+ is able to provide a better picture and offer even more apps and channels. Roku has all of the usual apps you'd expect, like Netflix, Hulu, HBO GO, Sling TV and much more. But it also has Google's services, which the Fire TV Stick does not have. That includes YouTube and Google Play Movies & TV. Roku also has its own "free" channel which plays different movies and TV shows – which you don't need any Roku hardware to use, actually since it is available on the web as well. So if you are looking for a streaming stick and do have a 4K TV, then this is definitely the one to pick up.
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 $119/year (or $59/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.
