Many of you may be familiar with Roku’s lineup of streaming media sticks and small set-top boxes. However, the company also has a higher end streaming set-top box that is usually much more expensive at $99.99. However, today Amazon is selling the Roku Ultra box for just $49.99, or $50 off its normal price.
The Roku Ultra has been designed mainly for the living room or media room and really big screen televisions. Not only do you get wireless 4K video streaming support, but you can even connect the box physically to your network router with its built-in Ethernet port for the best possible data connection. It also comes with a voice remote, plus a remote finder on the box itself that causes a sound to come from the remote when you misplace it.
The Roku Ultra also comes with a USB port, in case you want to show off your local videos and photos from a connected flash drive. There’s also a microUSB card slot, which is available so you can store more Roku channels at once. It also supports night viewing mode, which automatically lowers louder moments on the screen, and boosts the volume on lower moments at night. Finally, the Roku Ultra ships with a pair of JBL headphones, which can connect to the remote so you can listen to your shows without disturbing anyone else.
Of course, you still get the great Roku OS and user interface with the Roku Ultra, which allows you to access thousands of different streaming channels and services. Roku has nearly all the major streaming services, such as Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime Video and others, along with cord-cutting internet TV services like Sling, PlayStation Vue, YouTube TV, DirecTV Now and others. There’s also the Roku Channel, which offers a selection of movies and TV shows for free, with ads.
For the price of $49.99, this huge discount makes the Roku Ultra a must for the movie and TV fan. Will you be checking out this limited time deal?
