Roku puts popular streaming stick on sale this week
The Roku Streaming Stick, viewed by some as a one of the best streaming devices on the market, has been marked down to $39.99 on Amazon.
Yes, it’s that same streaming stick (model: 3600R) that came out on April 20. This is also the same model that debuted at $50 and earned a five-star rating from CNET when it debuted.
There’s a lot of neat tech packed into this little device: it has “private listening” mode and voice search capability through the Roku smartphone/tablet app.
Most people can’t even drive out of a gas station without dropping less than $40. Never mind how much big cable charges people every month for TV. So, if you’re thinking of jumping ship with cable, this might be a way to tip toe into the water first. Even if you keep the cable, the huge amount of apps and viewing options on Roku makes this device well worth the money.
Best Buy has the same sale going, and offers either free two-day shipping or in-store pickup. Roku had a similar markdown on this device back in June.
