We have long been fans of Roku streaming devices thanks to their power, versatility and support for most major streaming services. Those looking to make an old TV smarter in their homes or upgrade an outdated gadget can do so even less than now that many Roku devices are sold on Amazon. It’s a note Roku Streambar for $ 99 – it’s the best price we’ve seen on a compact soundtrack that also has built-in 4K streaming capabilities. They are also discounted Roku Express, now $ 25, Roku Express 4K +, now $ 29, and Roku Streaming Stick +, now $ 39.
The Roku Streambar it’s one of those multifunctional devices that thrives on everything they’re designed for. It’s a soundtrack about the size of an egg carton, which should make it easier to fit into most TV settings. And despite its small size, it has brilliance when it comes to sound quality. The Streambar provides a solid upgrade for anyone who relies on built-in TV speakers, plus it supports Dolby Audio and works as a Bluetooth speaker.
While you could only invest in the Streambar because of its audio clips, it also has built-in Roku 4K streaming technology – meaning it will act as both a soundtrack and a set-top box. If you’re not happy with your current smart TV or have an old, “stupid” TV that you don’t want to replace yet, the Roku Streambar is a good (and affordable) way to feel like new again.
Those on a smaller budget may find something even better for their placement on other Roku devices at a discount. Streaming Stick + has been our favorite for many years because it provides you with 4K HDR streaming in a sleek, portable package. If you can compromise on things like long-range wireless and remote capabilities, Express or Express 4K + are cheap ways to add streaming features to your TV.
