When it comes to the world of streaming media players, you won’t find a more capable or fully-featured device than the Roku Ultra (2020). And right now, as part of Amazon’s Cyber Monday deals, the Ultra is at its lowest price of the year — $69. That’s more than 30% off its regular price.
The 2019 version of the Roku Ultra was already a top-notch streamer, but it was missing one very important feature that streaming fans demanded: Dolby Vision. This dynamic HDR format is rapidly becoming the standard for streaming services like Netflix, Apple TV+, Disney+, and Amazon Prime Video when they present major movies and TV shows in 4K. If you have a 4K, Dolby Vision-capable TV, the Roku Ultra 2020 should be a top contender as you consider your streaming media choices.
The Ultra’s features go way beyond 4K and Dolby Vision. There’s also support for Dolby Atmos, the leading surround sound format. The streamer has a USB port so that you can access music, photos, and videos from an external hard drive. There’s a lost remote finder button which will cause the remote to emit a beeping sound — which is audible even when wedged between the sofa pillows.
Speaking of the remote, it has controls for your TV’s volume and mute functions and a headphone jack that lets you listen to your streaming shows silently whether you use the included JBL earbuds or your own headphones. There’s also a built-in mic for voice commands — you can ask the Ultra to open your favorite streaming app, search for content with your favorite actor, or simply find you a comedy so you can kick back and relax with some laughs.
Just like every Roku device, the Ultra has access to thousands of streaming apps and the platform is also host to a growing list of free live TV streaming channels that make cutting the cord even easier.
The Roku Ultra (2020) is truly a no-compromises media streamer and now is the best time to buy one.
