If you’ve been bored at home recently — as many of us have been — then you might want to look into getting a streaming device so you can easily watch all your favorite streaming services from your television. In the last few years, there has been a boom in cheap, easy-to-use devices that can turn any old TV into a smart TV with an array of streaming features. Now that Prime Day has arrived and there are tons of great Prime Day deals available, you could pick up a device like a Roku or Fire TV as part of the Prime Day Roku deals or Prime Day Fire TV deals, and you could even splurge on a TV to watch on with Prime Day 4K TV deals. We’ve rounded up some of the best streaming device deals available to help you choose the right device for you.
Roku Express — $21, was $30
Arguably the simplest, easiest, and cheapest way to turn your TV into a streaming hub is using a Roku Express. This device plugs into your TV using the included HDMI cable and hooks up to the internet to stream content. With this simple setup, you can start streaming your favorite services including Netflix, Disney+, Apple TV, HBO, Showtime, and more. The package includes a remote to control your streaming services or you can download the Roku app to control the device from your phone. The Roku Express is usually $30, but it’s down to $22 for Prime Day.
Fire TV Stick 4K — $30, was $50
If you prefer the Fire system but also want 4K streaming, then you can opt for the Fire TV Stick 4K. This is exactly like the regular Fire TV Stick but with support for 4K streaming so you can enjoy your movies, TV shows, or sporting events in glorious high definition. It once again comes with a remote and is a small, discreet device that is easy to hide away. Originally costing $50, the 4K stick is now on sale for $30.
Roku Streaming Stick+ — $37, was $50
If you want to stream in high definition, you should check out the Roku Streaming Stick+ which supports streaming in up to 4K and supports HDR streaming as well. This device performs the same function as the Roku Express but comes in a small form factor and enables higher definition streams, so it’s perfect for large TVs. It also comes with a remote and is just as easy to set up and use as other Roku devices. It normally costs $50, but is on sale now for $38.
Roku Ultra — $80, was $100
For a Roku device with a ton of different connectivity options and support for 4K and HDR streaming, you should look into the Roku Ultra. This device has both dual-band wireless and Ethernet support so you can go with a wired or wireless connection to the internet as you prefer. It also has USB and micro SD ports so you can plug in practically any device and play media on your TV easily. The Ultra supports voice commands too, so you can set up personal shortcuts and search channels. If you’re trying to keep quiet and not disturb others in your house, you can use the included JBL headphones. And it streams all the services you could want, like Netflix, Disney+, Apple TV, and more. The device normally costs $100, but you can pick it up for $95 today.
Fire TV Cube — $80, was $120
Perhaps you’re looking for Alexa integration in your streaming device, so you can control your TV using just your voice. In that case, you can try out the Fire TV Cube. This device supports Alexa so you can ask it to turn the TV on, dim the lights, or play the content of your choice. It has a built-in speaker so Alexa can also tell you about the weather today even when the TV is off. And of course, you can also plug it into your TV to stream from services like Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, YouTube, and Disney+. The Fire TV Cube is normally $120 but is on sale now for $80.
