Roku is discounting a host of its most popular streaming devices and, in the United States, offering free content from premium channels.
In the UK, you can get £20 off the newly-released 4K HDR-enabled Roku Streaming Stick+, which received a 9/10 score from Trusted Reviews last month
“It’s not oversimplified like the Google Chromecast Ultra, nor is it overpriced like the Apple TV 4K. If you just want a streamer that works, the Roku Streaming Stick Plus offers amazing value,” wrote Ced Yeun in his review.
In the US, the discounts are spread across the product range.
The original 1080p Streaming Stick (2017) is $10 off and now $39.99. The Streaming Stick+ is $20.99 off at $49.00. Meanwhile, the top off the range Roku Ultra is $89.00, reduced from $99.99 for a limited time.
Another prize for current and future Roku owners in the United States is the abundance of high profile content providers offering free shows for a limited time.
Roku says partners like Showtime, Fox, EPIX and Smithsonian Earth will be offering up free content for the first time, via The Roku Channel. There’ll be no logins, subscriptions or fees required of Roku streamers for the next week.
In a press release sent out by the company, Roku says: “Premiere seasons of critically acclaimed series from SHOWTIME such as Billions, Ray Donovan and The Affair; the addictive first season of EPIX’s dark comedy, Get Shorty; episodes of pop-cultural hits from FOX such as The Four: Battle for Stardom, with expert panelists judges Sean “Diddy” Combs, DJ Khaled and Meghan Trainor, and host Fergie; Beat Shazam, hosted by Jamie Foxx; and Love Connection, hosted by Andy Cohen; as well as exclusive nature and wildlife documentaries from Smithsonian Earth, are among the selection of content that customers can watch in The Roku Channel for free through May 20.”
