Day 12: The Roku Streaming Stick
For many years Roku has been offering consumers a convenient and cost effective streaming experience from the comfort of their home using nothing more than an internet connection. This is now easier than ever thanks to their Roku Streaming Stick.
For the unaccustomed, Roku devices give you access to more than 100,000 movies, TV shows and news channels as well as online streaming services like Netflix, Amazon Prime Video and YouTube as well. There is also some great live sport options too with content from MLB TV and popular NBA and NHL channels. Lastly, you can even rent, buy or subscribe to more content thanks to the Google Play Store.
The big selling point with their devices is the ease of set up and with the Roku Streaming Stick, it couldn’t be any easier. You simply take their very compact streaming player and connect it your TV HDMI port, plug in the power adapter and away you go. The Roku device will guide you through a very simple click and point registration process and before long you will be streaming HD and 4K content of your choice without a costly monthly subscription fee.
Additionally, the Roku system navigation is very intuitive with a click and search functionality and you can even download their IOS or Android app directly on to your phone to both control the unit and search for content if you so desire. You can even reach true couch potato status with their included voice search feature.
By far, our favorite inclusion on these these devices is Roku Feed, where users can you can follow movies, TV shows, actors, and directors and get automatic updates when new content is ready to stream or when the price drops on the Play Store. This is a convenient way to stay up to date with the latest releases.
At just $49.99 with a one year warranty, you simply won’t find a more versatile and spend thrift gift this year!
