Our favorite Roku deal right now: Roku Ultra

The Roku Ultra is the brand’s golden child, consistently marketed as its fastest and most powerful streaming player to date—and we don’t disagree.

Other top Roku deals of the moment: Roku Streaming Stick 4K, Roku Express, Roku Express 4K+, Roku Streambar, TCL - 50" Class 4-Series 4K UHD HDR Smart Roku TV

1. Roku Streaming Stick 4K

Why does the Roku Streaming Stick 4K get so much attention in the cord-cutting community? The Roku Streaming Stick 4K is the perfect gadget to get if you have an older smart TV with lagging smart capabilities or a slow and unresponsive UI, or if you simply want to give your current TV a little upgrade.

It tucks nicely behind your TV set, out of sight. You’ll get Dolby Vision HDR for a spectacular viewing experience. It’s ultra-fast, and comes with a voice control remote to make finding your favorite titles even easier.

Best of all? It’s currently selling at almost 30% off, for $35.50—a much cheaper cost than buying a brand-new smart TV.


2. Roku Express

Next up on promotion is the Roku Express.

If we were to sum up the Roku Express in one sentence, it would be: “Great for tech newbies and seasoned experts alike.” The word “Express” perfectly describes this device: it’s quick, it’s easy, and it packs a punch. You get exactly what you’d want out of an introductory streaming player—no more, no less. It’s perfect for non-fussy watchers who just want faster streaming, HD quality, an extremely user-friendly interface with all the streaming apps like Hulu and Netflix clearly accessible, and a simple remote.

You can currently save $5 on your purchase of the Roku Express, getting it for just $24.99.


3. Roku Express 4K+

Do you like the Roku Express, but want to kick it up a notch? Think of the Roku Express 4K+ as the Roku Express’ cooler older sibling.

You still get all the basics—great interface, quick streaming, Roku’s selection of free, live and premium channels—but you also get spectacular 4K picture quality at an unbeatable price, a voice control remote that makes finding the shows and movies you want to watch easy, and we can almost guarantee that the streaming app you’ll want will be available on there.

The Roku Express 4K+ is already a steal at regular price, but getting it for 25% off at $29.99… that’s a deal that would be criminal to pass up on.


4. Roku Streambar

There’s nothing like watching a new blockbuster action film right from the comfort of your own home, with a premium sound system that makes all the roars and rumbles feel like they’re pulsing right through you.

The Roku Streambar is an all-in-one streaming player that comes with a powerful soundbar. The Dolby Audio supporting device has four internal speakers that will fill your room with sound, and can also be easily combined with other Roku wireless speakers for a surround sound experience. You’ll be surprised at what extent a premium speaker can upgrade your movie nights.

Beyond that, you’ll also get everything you’d want in a streaming player, including a voice control remote, 4K HDR picture quality, automatic commercial quieting, and more.

You can currently save $35 on your purchase of the Roku Streambar, getting it for just $94.99. Don’t miss out!


5. TCL - 50" Class 4-Series 4K UHD HDR Smart Roku TV

In the market for a new smart TV? Look no further than this one.

You can currently shop the TCL - 50" Class 4-Series 4K UHD HDR Smart Roku TV at Best Buy and get a brand-new, high tech TV for just $269.99—saving a whopping $30.

This TV is highly ranked among customers based on picture quality, price, and convenience. It’s easy to set up, and you can watch all your favorite TV shows, movies and live sports with nearly ultra HD picture quality. The customizable home screen is perfect for keeping all your favorite apps, channels and game consoles easily accessible.

If you’re looking for a cheap, entry-level smart TV that won’t disappoint, this one’s worth checking out.


6. 30 days of complimentary HBO Max and Discovery+

Currently, Roku is running an entertainment offer that’s sure to please everyone in the family. For a limited time only, you’ll get a free 30-day subscription to both HBO Max and Discovery+ with the purchase of any Roku streaming player. This means you’ll be able to watch popular shows like the Game of Thrones spin-off House of the Dragon, the HBO dark comedy hit series Barry, plenty of well-shot documentaries, and more.

Once you activate your brand-new Roku device, an offer will pop up on your TV screen to activate the offers. Follow the prompts to accept.

How often does Roku offer deals?

Roku offers special deals on its products year-round, but its best offers generally happen around the holidays. So if you’re thinking of getting a Roku device but aren’t in a rush, it’s worth waiting until Black Friday/Cyber Monday, or around Christmas time in general.

If you want to check out what deals Roku is running directly, check out the “Special Offers” section on their website.

Is Roku better than Amazon Fire TV?

Roku vs. Amazon Fire is the age-old question. Which is better? To be perfectly honest, there’s no right or wrong answer here. It all depends on you.

In a nutshell, when we compare the two devices, they aren’t so different. Roku devices start at a lower price point, at $17.99, while Fire TV sticks start at $19.99. This balances out since the premium Roku products are more expensive than the premium Amazon products, but they do offer more in terms of features.

Generally speaking, we’d recommend the Roku over the Amazon Fire TV if you prioritize having a highly intuitive platform, an easy to use remote control with a special lost remote finder, or want to take advantage of its long-range Wi-Fi feature.

What can you watch on Roku?

The amount of content you can watch on Roku is endless. First off, you can access a wide variety of streaming services, such as Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime Video, Disney+, Peacock, Crunchyroll, and many more. You can also use Roku to access live TV channels through streaming services like Sling TV, Hulu + Live TV, and DirecTV Stream.

You can also watch content from various networks and cable channels through their individual apps, such as ABC, ESPN, and HBO. You can even pay for channels individually to access them on your Smart TV without subscribing to a whole streaming service.

There are also many other options for watching movies, TV shows, and other types of video content on Roku. For a full list of what’s available to watch on Roku, click here.

Our takeaway: So many Roku deals, so little time

Roku offers special deals on its products year-round, but its best offers generally happen around the holidays. So if you’ve been considering getting a new Roku streaming player or other device, take advantage while they’re on sale!
