Roku introduced a new 2021 edition of the Roku Streaming Stick and Roku Streaming Stick+ earlier in September. These are basically upgrades of older models, so they're faster and capable of some better features. Right now you can get the Roku Streaming Stick 4K device (opens in new tab) on sale for $34.99 at Amazon. This is an all-time low for the new streaming device and even matches the current price of the older Streaming Stick+ (opens in new tab). The same device is still $40 at Best Buy (opens in new tab) and as much as $50 at other retailers.
Anything that gives you full access to Roku's content library is already a win. That's thousands of easily accessible movies and shows. Then include some 4K and HDR support and its low price and you've got a winning combination.
In addition to the new hardware, Roku has also updated its user experience and operating system. Grabbing the new Streaming Stick ensures you get the latest UI and the best software possible. This version of the Streaming Stick is also 30% faster than previous generations, so you'll feel the difference.
Look at all the features this device has, too. It supports 4K resolution, Dolby Vision, and HDR10+ for excellent image quality no matter what you're watching. It also has a long-range Wi-Fi receiver so you get twice the WI-Fi speeds you had before and a stronger signal even if your TV isn't close to your router.
It's also worth pointing out that Roku has added to its lineup with Roku Originals, including some excellent shows like Reno 911 and Die Hart (starring Kevin Hart). You get access to all of those for free in addition to whatever other streaming services you own.
You can also unite your Streaming Stick and your TV with your Roku remote so you don't have to switch between them. The remote even has a voice function so you can search for your favorite shows or control your device with some simple voice commands.
