Do you own a set-top box that you love? That’s great—keep loving it! Are you interested in seeing what all the fuss is about? Then consider the new $50 Roku Streaming Stick. It’s cheap and easy and versatile, and frankly, that’s really what you should want.
Earlier this year, YouTube rolled out 360-degree videos. Like magic, they let you peer around in any direction from within the video. Now, one company is taking that futuristic video-viewing from your computer—and bringing it to your much bigger TV screen.
While I personally think the 4K Amazon Fire TV is a better deal at the same price, if you prefer a Roku, the voice-controlled Roku 3 is down to $75 on Amazon, with a free HDMI cable tossed in. [Roku 3 With Voice Search and HDMI Cable, $75]
I turn 30 this month, and it feels like I am one of the few people my age who watches cable TV and is willing to pay for it. Truth is, I hate watching shows on my computer—or worse, my phone. Give me new episodes in real-time, on a real TV. I know I’m on the wrong side of history, but I also know I’m not the only one.
If you need a good streaming box for any of your TVs, the excellent Roku 3 is down to $77 today on Amazon, which is within a few bucks of an all-time low.
Sling TV is the over-the-top TV service we've been waiting for (or at least, it will be once it gets AMC), and right now they're giving away popular streaming devices just for signing up.
Update: Sold out. Hope you got one!
