The best Black Friday deals for one of the best streaming sticks.
If you want to watch Netflix, Prime Video, NOW TV or other streaming services on your TV you’ve got two options. Either get a Smart TV with the apps built-in, or buy a separate device to plug into an HDMI slot on your TV.
The problem with most of the devices such as the Amazon Firestick or using your games console is they don’t let you watch every service. So you end up with more than one stick, and more than one remote control. It’s manageable, but there is a better option which has all the main apps – Roku.
I’ve written in the past about the different streaming sticks, but here’s a quick intro to what you can watch with a Roku.
What can you watch with a Roku
You can see the full list of supported apps on the Roku website, but it includes the following:
- Amazon Prime Video
- Now TV
- Apple TV +
- BBC iPlayer
- All 4
- ITV Hub
- TV Player
- Google Play
You obviously need to pay separate subscriptions to actually watch many of these services – the stick just lets you access them on your TV. Here are a few offers and deals for streaming services including Netflix, NOW TV and more.
