The Roku Premiere debuted last year as a 4K-capable streaming player priced at just $40. That was already a fairly good price, but now the box has dropped to just $30 on Amazon.Read More
Streaming media players have really come down in price over the last few years.

The streaming hardware industry is a highly competitive place. No sooner had Roku introduced its Premiere 4K player in late September for a market-beating $40, than Amazon launched the Fire Stick 4K for a mere $10 more, with support for all three major HDR standards (HDR10, HDR10+, and Dolby Vision) plus Dolby Atmos for sound. But while the Premiere only offers HDR10 and is a bit bigger than a streaming stick, many prefer its user interface and remote design. Roku also beats Amazon to market by a small margin — it's available as of today, October 8th, while the Fire Stick TV 4K starts shipping October 31st.Read More
I only have one TV at home and I made my decision and went with an NVIDIA SHIELD TV. But if you're still wondering about ways to bring some streaming and smart capabilities to your TV for cheap, you have many options nowadays ranging from the Chromecast to the Amazon Fire Stick and the Roku devices.

If that floats your boat, and you're not lured by the Chromecast or you're gifting a relative who wants a real interface on their TV and a remote, then the new Roku Streaming Stick+ with 4K support should be right up your alley, especially with its $20 discount to $49.99.Read More
