Amazon Prime Day Roku deals
There's often a strong showing for Roku offers among the Amazon Prime day deals, and we don't expect this year to be any different. In the past, we've seen the Roku sticks in particular have great discounts on them, and we expect to see the same this year.
The current Roku TV models in the UK are Argos only, so while they go into sales soon, it won't be explicitly Amazon Prime Day says. In the US, however, there are Roku TV models on Amazon, so there could be some great offers there.
Depending on what you watch there maybe a fee, as some channels charge a subscription or allow you to simply rent or buy. But there are also hundreds of channels that are free to enjoy, leaving you in control of what you want to pay for and what you don't.
There are lots of different product versions, but we're here to walk you through all of the readily available ones and give you the best prices. Read on for the very best Roku deals of 2020.
Roku Streaming Stick Plus deals
This is a small but simply superb streaming stick that delivers 4K, HDR10 content for very little money. The Plus boasts four times the range as certain rival models, as well as stronger signal, too, and it also comes with a new remote with buttons for TV power and volume. As you would expect, this stick will work with any TV with a HDMI connection, however if you are dropping the money for this model then really you should be pairing it with a strong 4K, UHD, HDR TV. If you do, the results will definitely not disappoint.
Roku Premiere+ deals
The Roku Premiere+ is a great combination of performance and value from a 4K streaming player. This Plus version includes HDR (High Dynamic Range) playback, giving it a feature the Amazon Fire TV box lacks. Is your Wi-Fi a bit weak? Fear not as there's an optional ethernet port to give those 4K visuals the juice they need. Don't forget the option to enjoy private listening by plugging headphones into the remote too.
Roku Premiere deals
While very cheap for a solid 4K streamer, we'd seriously recommend weighing up the prices of this compared to the Plus model above as you'll get additional features for a few dollars more. We're talking HDR playback, optional ethernet connection, MicroSD slot and you can plug headphones into the remote.
Roku Ultra deals
Consider this the deluxe member of the Roku family, with even more features than the acclaimed Roku Premiere Plus.
So what's new with the Roku Ultra? The remote control can now be used for voice-search and it now features extra buttons to convert it into a game controller. If you make a habit of losing the remote a lot, there's a button on the box to make the remote emit a noise to help you find it. Optical out audio and USB ports round out one of the best streaming devices on the market.
It's also the most expensive Roku in the family, so we'd think about if you really need the extra over the Plus version.
Best Roku Streaming Stick deals
By choosing the entry level Streaming Stick you save money but you also loose some functionality. You say goodbye to the fast HD optimised processor, Ethernet, USB and microSD card slot, the headphone jack slot and control for games compared to some of the models above.
However, there are no clumsy cables as the Streaming Stick plugs directly into the HDMI slot. It also runs faster than the cheaper Roku Express.
Roku Express deals
Buying from the US? The Roku Express is the cheapest member of the Roku streamer family. The Roku Express doesn't run quite as fast as the slightly more expensive Roku Streaming Stick and attaches to your TV via a HDMI cable rather than plug in directly to the slot like the Stick model.
Hisense Roku TV B7120
TheUK's first Roku-powered TV is an incredible set for the price. The Roku software makes it extremely easy and slick to operate, and it's packed with just about every streaming service you could hope for. And the hardware of the TV itself is also incredibly impressive – the image is bright and colourful, contrast is impressive for the price, and the upscaling of lower-quality video to 4K is astoundingly good. IT comes in 50-inch, 55-inch and 65-inch versions.
