Huge Roku price cut isn’t the only reason to switch from a Fire TV Stick

If your current Fire TV Stick is getting a little past its best now could be a good time to invest in something new. Roku, which is one of Amazon’s biggest rivals, is currently running a major sale with these mini streaming devices slashed in price. In fact, you can pop one in your online shopping basket for as little as £17.99 – that’s a bit of a bargain. As a comparison, the cheapest Fire TV Stick is currently £29.99.

That low price is for the Roku Expres which features full a remote control and can stream content in full HD.

Along with the Express on sale, there are also discounts on the Roku Streaming Stick 4K and Roku Express 4K.

Just like the Fire TV Stick, these mini gadgets plug into your current TV and help make it smarter thanks to full access to apps such as Netflix, Disney+ and Prime Video.

All of Roku’s devices also feature full voice search and quick access buttons to the most popular platforms so you won’t have to scroll through endless menus to find your favourite boxsets.

If that’s got you thinking of upgrading, here are all the best deals.
