Thinking about getting a streaming stick for your television? Amazon and Roku are offering these limited-time deals on Roku Streaming Stick and Amazon Fire TV Stick devices.
The previous-generation Roku Streaming Stick is now available for $39.99 — a 20% discount off the regular $49.99 price. Roku is offering the discount through its website, Amazon and other retailers.

Simply plug this device into your TV’s HDMI and USB ports to begin streaming 1080p video content over the internet. Roku’s Channel system lets you add apps from mainstream services like Netflix, Sling TV and others.
Roku replaced the Streaming Stick last year with the 4K-enabled Streaming Stick+ which probably explains the new promotion. The promotion expires January 20 or when supplies run out, whichever comes first.
Amazon Prime members can pick up an Amazon Fire TV Stick for $29.99, or $5 off the price of a brand new version.
Plugging the Fire TV into your TV’s HDMI port and a nearby AC outlet gets you all of the streaming content from Amazon Prime Video plus apps for other streaming services like Hulu and CBS All Access.
The Alexa Voice Remote Control integrates the Fire TV with your Amazon Echo. Simply ask Alexa to start playing your favorite programs.
