We’re partial to the Android TV platform, but we have to admit that Roku’s devices offer a much snappier interface and quite a powerful ecosystem. The top of the line Roku Ultra is still a great deal at its usual $100 price point, but thanks to a 52% discount from Amazon, you can now pick up the Roku Ultra for a cool $48!
The streaming box is a bit bigger than Roku’s HDMI sticks, but its extra size is there for a reason. In addition to 4K HDR streams, the Roku Ultra supports DTS Digital Surround, Dolby Audio and Dolby ATMOS pass-through. Supported streaming services include the new Apple TV+ and Disney + along with the usual Prime Video, Netflix, The Roku Channel, HBO, Showtime and Google Play.
The Roku Ultra is the perfect gift for family members who may not yet own a smart TV or if you’re simply fed up with messing with your older TV’s outdated smart features.
