Dreaming of ditching cable? With streaming quickly becoming the go-to way to binge watch, it’s hardly a surprise that droves of former cable lovers are transitioning to streaming devices — namely, the Roku.
The Roku Ultra — on sale for an all-time low price of $69, down from $100 — gets you access to HBO Max, Hulu, Netflix, Disney+ and more. It’s a must for older TV sets that don't have built-in streaming, or if you’re just tired of watching Schitt’s Creek or Emily in Paris on a tiny tablet, laptop or phone screen.
And if you have Amazon Prime, you’ll get free shipping, of course. Not yet a member? No problem. You can sign up for your free 30-day trial here. (And by the way, those without Prime still get free shipping on orders of $25 or more.)
One of the brand's most powerful devices, the Roku Ultra turns any TV with an HDMI port into a smart TV. It supports Wi-Fi and wired streaming via Ethernet for a smooth and steady HD and 4K Ultra HD picture quality. Translation: You’ll notice little loading time or buffering. Thanks to HDR (High Dynamic Range), you'll get vivid colors, inky black levels and the sharpest picture imaginable.
The Roku Ultra can access more than 500,000 streaming channels (more than any other platform out there), including Amazon Prime Video, Apple TV and SlingTV. It has a built-in USB port for thumb drives and external hard drives (a rarity on 4K streamers these days), so you can bring your own media and photos to the party.
Shoppers can't get enough. "Very easy to set up and add the channels I wanted," raved a five-star reviewer. "I was blown away that it automatically programmed itself to my TV...The remote find feature is a must... Very fast and we even love the aquarium screensaver."
At $69 (was $100), the Roku Ultra even comes with a special remote control that features a headphone jack, so you can listen to your TV without disturbing the rest of your household. Just plug the included JBL headphones into the remote to automatically go into private viewing mode. Sweet.
