- The Roku Express HD was one of the hottest products this past Prime Day, and now it’s back on sale.
- For just $24 you get access to more than 500,000 movies and shows thanks to all the popular streaming services supported by Roku.
- This deal isn’t likely to last very long, so you’ll need to hurry if you want to take advantage.
There were a few products that were particularly popular during Amazon’s big Prime Day 2020 blowout sale last week, and the Roku Express HD was definitely near the top of the list. As a matter of fact, we still can’t believe that something so great can be had at such a ridiculously low price. Now, just one week later, this best-selling streaming media player is already back on sale with a deep discount — but there’s no way this deal is going to last very long.
With the holidays around the corner, the Roku Express HD is the perfect gift for anyone on your list. Even if you already have a smart TV that supports apps, there’s no way that proprietary smart TV platforms will ever support as many apps as the big streamers like Roku and Fire TV. The only possible reason not to buy the Express HD is the fact that this entry-level streaming device doesn’t support 4K resolution or HDR. Don’t worry though, because it won’t cost you much more to upgrade to a model that does — just grab the Roku Premiere instead for $39 or the Roku Streaming Stick+ for $48.95 instead of 60!Roku Express | HD Streaming Media Player with High Speed HDMI Cable and Simple Remote List Price:$29.99 Price:$24.00 You Save:$5.99 (20%) Available from Amazon, BGR may receive a commission Roku Premiere | HD/4K/HDR Streaming Media Player, Simple Remote and Premium HDMI Cable, Black List Price:$39.99 Price:$39.00 You Save:$10.49 (26%) Available from Amazon, BGR may receive a commission Roku Streaming Stick+ | HD/4K/HDR Streaming Device with Long-range Wireless and Roku Voice Remo… Price:$48.95 Available from Amazon, BGR may receive a commission
