If you’ve been wondering why Roku’s previous-generation streaming stick as been on sale so much lately, the answer is simple: a newer model was released recently.

For a limited time, the quad-core Roku 3600R Streaming Stick is on sale for just $5 more than at $39.99 with free shipping, giving users access to more than 3,000 channels of entertainment on a quad-core streaming stick that’s more powerful than most full-size boxes.
