Two of Roku’s Most Advanced 4K UHD Set-top Boxes Are on Sale Right Now
Stephan Jukic – May 9, 2017
For 4K TV owners who aren’t fully satisfied with their own television’s smart TV platform, the set-top boxes put out by Roku offer some of the best and most versatile choices on today’s market. This applies particularly to the company’s two newest and most advanced models, the Roku Premiere and the Roku Premiere+.
Now only do both of these set-top boxes offer full compatibility with the vast majority of today’s 4K UHD TVs, they also come with some remarkably broad content streaming options along with plenty of 4K ultra HD video services that even include HDR 4K content in the more advanced of the two models.
Now, in addition to their quality, the Roku Premiere and Roku Premiere+ boxes are also more affordable than ever before. Bear in mind also that this is a discount price from the already very reasonable price tags that these set-top devices had earlier.
Essentially, Amazon is putting up a rather cool electronics sale on their certified refurbished products and the bargains on these two set-top boxes are part of the deals being offered on the site. Yes, we’re talking about refurbished Roku 4K UHD set-top boxes here but for these low prices and the relative simplicity of these two gadgets, this deal is worth looking into.
So to get down into specifics here, we first have the more powerful Roku Premiere+ selling for $65 instead of its more typical retail price of $99. This set top box offers up full Ethernet and WiFi connectivity, a quad-core processor for fast, smooth smart platform use and support for 4K ultra HD at 60fps. The Roku Premiere+ also comes with full HDR support for more vibrant colors, deeper blacks and brighter whites in some content sources and Roku has also given this set-top box a “point-anywhere” smart remote with headphones as an accessory for private listening to movies and shows.
Another, possibly just as interesting alternative Amazon offering (because it doesn’t involve a refurbished model) is this sale for a brand new Premiere+ box for $79.99.
Next, there is the Roku Premiere set-top box on Amazon, selling for just $48.00 instead of a typical $69.99. This model lacks the HDR features of the Premiere+ but comes with all the other smart platform technologies of its pricier sibling. These include (for both models)
- Access to apps and channels with over 450,000 movies, TV shows, documentaries and other types of video content (with ever more of it being available in 4K resolution).
- Access to key 4K entertainment apps like Netflix, Amazon and Hulu among others
- Compatibility with the Roku mobile app for iOS or Android devices and voice search.
Check out both of these popular and highly rated 4K Ultra HD set-top boxes on the Amazon pages linked to above for each. They’d both make for genuinely useful accessories for many 4K and HD TVs being sold today.
