The New Roku Streaming Stick Is All You Need

 

Do you own a set-top box that you love? That's great-keep loving it! Are you interested in seeing what all the fuss is about? Then consider the new $50 Roku Streaming Stick. It's cheap and easy and versatile, and frankly, that's really what you should...

Roku Streaming Stick review

 

All of Roku's streaming prowess in a little Chromecast-rivaling dongle? Don't mind if we do

Tiny and discreet ; Very affordable ; Good range of apps ; Can stream your own stuff

Requires power via USB

There are now many options if you want a budget streamer, but this is the best so far

Roku Streaming Stick

 

Is the Streaming Stick a genuine Chromecast rival?

Plenty of channels ; Smartphone works great as remote control ; Very easy to use

Some slow loading times ; Takes a while to set up

In the top right hand corner is a drop down where you can move from Remote view to look at ‘My Channels’ the ‘Channel Store’ and send content to the Roku from your phone: specifically music and photos. The music has to be stored on the device so it...

Roku Streaming Stick (2016) review

 

The $50 Roku Streaming Stick is a no-brainer, must-own device for the serious streamer.

Lightning quick ; Wireless audio through smart phones ; All the apps ; Doesn’t favor any one streaming service ; Best search around

No 4K support ; No HDMI extension

Roku’s new Streaming Stick delivers an outstanding experience. It’s the snappy click-and-go device we think everyone expects, but somehow packed into a little stick no larger than a small pack of gum. And, as previously mentioned, Roku’s platform...

Roku Streaming Stick 2017 review

 

These days just about every TV above 49 inches or $300 has 4K resolution and probably high dynamic range too, so if you're buying a streaming device for a newer TV, chances are you want one that does that stuff. My favorite this year is the $70 Roku...

The Roku Streaming Stick streams Netflix, Amazon, Hulu and the rest in an ultra-compact design for an affordable price. Its remote can control your TV's volume and power. Responses are lightning-fast. The simple menus put every streaming service on a...

The menus can seem dated compared to rivals, and some apps use old-school layouts. Voice search and control is worse than Fire TV.

For buyers who don't care about 4K or HDR streaming, the Roku Streaming Stick is the best player on the market.

Roku Streaming Stick 2016 review

 

If I could only recommend one device for streaming video today, it would be the new Roku Streaming Stick. At $50 it's one of the least expensive home video devices you can buy. It's also one of the best.

The $50 Roku Streaming Stick is one of the least expensive devices to stream video from Netflix, Amazon, Hulu, HBO, Sling TV and other online services. It's just as responsive as other devices -- meaning it's lightning-fast -- and an updated app lets...

No Ethernet port means it only works via Wi-Fi, not a wired connection. Some app interfaces are less polished than on rival devices. Private listening feature loses lip-sync with some Bluetooth headphones.

The new Roku Streaming Stick is the best value in streaming-video hardware, period.

Roku Streaming Stick

 

Roku's latest Streaming Stick is a tiny, fast, full-featured media streamer that adds some interesting new features thanks to a companion mobile app.

Inexpensive. Functional. Responsive. Lots of services available. Private listening with Roku app and mobile device.

No 4K support. Doesn't have headphone jack on remote.

Roku's newest Streaming Stick is a distinct, if subtle, improvement over the previous version in every way. It's smaller, faster, can access all of the same apps and services as the original, and it has a few new tricks, all for the same price. It's...

Roku Streaming Stick review

 

Not the smoothest operator around, but the Roku Streaming Service has a good bag of tricks

Good picture and sound Features are plentiful and versatile

Power supply arrangement could be neater Chunky design may not fit smaller spaces Operation is not nearly as slick as its best rivals

When we first reviewed the Roku Streaming Stick, we gave it five stars. It’s still an impressive little package for the money, but there are better alternatives. Review updated on 27.02.15 MORE: How to add catch-up TV and online movies to your TV

Roku Streaming Stick review: TV everywhere

 

It happens every time I travel. I come back to my hotel room, flop into a freshly made bed, pick up the (probably sticky) black remote, and turn on the TV. I'm given the option to mortgage my home...

Unrivaled content selection ; Nice, simple interface ; Handy universal search

Somewhere between slow and very slow ; Setup could be faster ; Requires external power

The best Roku is the one you have with you

Review: Roku Streaming Stick (HDMI Version)

 

This stick is no stooge. It has the brains of a puck, and most of the brawn. But because it's a stick, it's cheaper and...

All the options of the Roku streaming ecosystem, but at half the cost of a Roku 3. Streams up to 1080p. Dual-band wireless is stable and steady. Compact design means the Roku Streaming Stick stays hidden out of sight at the back of your TV. All the USB...

No private listening on the remote. If you’re getting lousy reception, you can’t move it around like you can a regular Roku box — it’s stuck in the back of your TV. Odd shape may prove a tight fit depending on the alignment of your TV’s HDMI ports. The...
