Quibi launched last year as a streaming service designed for mobile viewing; all content could be watched in portrait mode, and episodes were never more than a few minutes long. The unique gimmick wasn't enough to save the service, which shut down in December, but now the remains of Quibi might be snatched up by Roku.
Cable may be overrated for a lot of people, but the same people end up asking themselves which streaming box they want to land on. Perhaps the price tag speaks the loudest for you? If so, you can grab the Roku Premiere, 4K- and HDR-capable, for its lowest price yet.
Google may have released a new Chromecast earlier this month, but Roku was offering dongles paired with remotes long before Google joined the scene. In order to compete against the Googz, Roku is now offering deals on three of its most popular streaming sticks — and they start at prices as low as $21 from Amazon,Best Buy, and Roku.
Roku has been a big name in streaming for some time now — it seems like everyone and their mother has at least one Roku device in their house. If you're looking to add one to your home, or just to upgrade your existing streaming experience, you're in luck: the company has announced some hefty new hardware in the new Roku Ultra and Roku Streambar, as well as an OS update and a new standalone streaming app.
Streaming has become the dominant form of entertainment — especially as of late — and having all your options available in one easy-to-access place is becoming a luxury we can all afford.

With so many different Chromecasts, Rokus, Apple TVs, and other video streaming devices on the market, simply streaming a video from your phone to your TV isn't as straight forward as it should be.

Here's everything you need to know about Web Video Caster, the top-rated web browser for streaming videos to TV.
It wasn't that long ago (about 10 years) that a 4K TV larger than 50" would command a price tag of $5,000 or more. Thanks to the march of progress in technology and fierce competition in the sector, the prices of large 4K TVs have fallen precipitously. TCL, well-known for its value-focused line of TVs, has a 75" 4K smart TV for sale right now for only $600 at Best Buy, its lowest price ever and a hefty $300 in savings.
Roku is my personal favorite maker of streaming boxes, as the company offers a no-nonsense OS that performs excellently, even on ultra-cheap hardware. During Thanksgiving week, Roku is discounting its players, TVs, and other devices to even lower prices.
Disney+ is scheduled to be released in the US today at 3 am PST, and its apps are already live on almost any platform you could think of. For many, it's even possible to log in right now, so if you're up for a late-night/early-morning streaming session, you can try your luck by downloading or accessing the service on a device of your choice.
