Right through the Black Friday — er, we mean Thanksgiving — long weekend, Roku is offering up a pretty sweet deal on its Streaming Stick and LT player. The HDMI stick will sell for $40 and the LT for just $30.
Update 12/1/2104 by Caleb Denison: Roku has informed us that it is also bundling three free months of Hulu Plus with its current promotion, which ends 12/1 at midnight, Pacific Time.
That puts the streaming stick on par in price with the Amazon Fire TV Stick. And at its special weekend price, the LT comes in at $10 less than the Google Chromecast. That’s for a streaming box that has both a user interface and a remote as well!
And as they say in those annoying infomercials: but wait, there’s more! Both the stick and LT will also come with two months of Rdio Unlimited, which is a $20 value. So effectively, the stick really costs just $20 and the LT a measly $10. The Rdio deal extends through to January 15, 2015 – as long as you buy and activate any new Roku player or TV by that date, you may qualify to receive the 60 days of free music access. No word on what the conditions are beyond that.
You can’t go wrong with those prices. These may be tiny devices, but they let you enjoy big content on the big screen.
The deals will run through to December 1, while supplies last for both items.
