Roku Channel adds paid subscriptions for Showtime, Starz, and more

Wednesday, January 2nd, 2019

The Roku Channel, currently a library of free ad-supported movies and TV shows, will soon grow to include paid subscription services including, most notably, Showtime and Starz. The savvy business move will draw in more channel viewers and likely boost ad revenue, as well as allow the company to play a more active role in the content that runs on its devices. From a user perspective, there are two main benefits: easier, consolidated content searching in one channel, and the ability to pay for multiple subscriptions through one monthly bill.

Roku Ultra 2018 is half off at just $50, but it’s selling out fast

Thursday, November 22nd, 2018

Sometimes Black Friday deals stick around for the better part of a week all the way until Cyber Monday, but sometimes they're incredibly short-lived. Case in point: The 2018 Roku Ultra is on sale for $50, but it looks like it has already sold out at B&H Photo. If you're interested, you had better pick one up while you can.

The 2018 Roku Ultra can sling 4K and HDR content onto your home screen, and it's kitted out with dual-band 802.11 AC MIMO Wi-Fi, Ethernet, microSD support, and a headphone jack on its voice-controlled remote — better peripheral support than most recent flagship phones.

The Roku Streaming Stick is already a nice product at its normal price of $50 — but now, it's practically irresistible at just $30.

Corbin was a fan of the Streaming Stick when he reviewed it last year.

You can now control your Roku from Google Assistant

Tuesday, October 30th, 2018

Roku's Google Assistant integration was promised a few weeks ago along with Logitech Harmony and NVIDIA SHIELD. And while those two have already been announced, the Roku integration is now following suit.

You can now add Roku as a Home control service in Assistant or the Google Home app. But before you get started, you need to make sure you have a compatible model running Roku OS 8.1. The company says this only works in the US (though it probably means it only works for US English), and that launching Netflix content on Roku is not currently supported.

Roku Premiere is now available, offering 4K streaming for $40

Monday, October 8th, 2018

The streaming hardware industry is a highly competitive place. No sooner had Roku introduced its Premiere 4K player in late September for a market-beating $40, Amazon introduced the Fire Stick 4K for a mere $10 more, with support for all three major HDR standards (HDR10, HDR10+, and Dolby Vision) plus Dolby Atmos for sound. But while the Premiere only offers HDR10 and is a bit bigger than a streaming stick, many prefer its user interface and remote design.

[Deal Alert] The Roku Streaming Stick is $35 ($15 off) on Amazon

Tuesday, July 17th, 2018

Roku's little streamer that could, the Roku Streaming Stick, is down to impulse buy territory. The diminutive device is just $35 on Amazon right now, bringing it down to the normal price of the base-model Chromecast and making it a much more appealing buy.

In his review, our own Corbin came away impressed by the Roku Streaming Stick, praising the device's performance. The little dongle matches the form factor of the first-gen Chromecast pretty closely, being a stick (obviously) that hides behind your TV, hanging out of an HDMI input and drawing its power from a USB port.
