The infamous shopping holiday is a few weeks away, but bargain hunters can already take advantage of offers as Black Friday deals have already started. Retailers have been rolling out discounts in an attempt to lure customers, such as this year’s Best Buy Black Friday deals covering practically everything from wide-screen TVs to streaming devices. If you are looking to convert your traditional TV into a smart TV, one of these deals is for the Roku Streaming Stick, which is being sold for only $40, down $10 from its original price of $50.

The Roku streaming media players aim to provide a very simple way to access streaming video and audio content on TVs, and the Roku Streaming Stick is no exception. Its plug-and-play interface only requires you to plug the device into your TV’s HDMI port and connect it to the internet.

Once the Roku Streaming Stick is set up, you can access a range of streaming services of up to 1080p HD picture quality on your TV, including Amazon Prime Video and Netflix. A separate subscription is required to access the content of these services, but the Roku Streaming Stick provides a single interface from which you can access all your favorite content.

The Roku Streaming Stick also comes with a voice remote that recognizes voice commands for searching channels, turning on captions, adjusting volume, and more. You may also use the Roku app as your remote control, with the app also enabling private listening so only you’d be able to hear what you’re watching.

If you want a smart TV without letting go of your traditional TV, the Roku Streaming Stick is the affordable answer to your problem. It’s easy to set up, but it gives you access to a massive amount of content that will breathe new life into your non-smart TV. You can purchase the Roku Streaming Stick for only $40 from Best Buy, a $10 discount from its original price of $50. With the volume of remaining stock unclear and Best Buy’s guarantee that it will refund the difference if prices are further lowered come Black Friday, there’s no reason to delay clicking on that Buy Now button.
