The Roku Ultra 4K Streamer Is Unbeatable At 50% Off For Black Friday
Stephan Jukic – November 23, 2018
The Roku Ultra 4K UHD streaming set-top box is probably one of the best external streaming smart TV devices available today. We easily consider its built-in smart platform, Roku TV, to be one of the most user-friendly we’ve ever reviewed and if you’re measuring by access to content, the Roku system is almost unbeatable, with over 500,000 different movies, shows, documentaries and so forth spread across more than 1000 “channels” (mainly in the form of specialized apps) of content. Then of course there are also the usual must-have apps like Netflix, Amazon Instant Video, Hulu, Vudu and tons of other major entertainment options, all accounted for and present. There’s basically something for virtually every preference in the Roku Ultra and its Roku TV OS.

Most of all, for people who’ve recently bought a 4K UHD TV (possibly one of the many that are on sale for deep discounts today -see below for details) the Roku Ultra represents a fantastically usable and expansive alternative to their own TVs native smart platforms, which in some cases can be quite a bit more limited than we might like.
With all that to keep in mind, today’s Amazon Black Friday deal on this very streaming set-top box becomes particularly useful. The online retail giant’s Prime service is offering the Roku Ultra for a major discount of 50% off its normal retail price of $99.99. Instead, you can now get the streamer until midnight today for just $49.99 and this even includes free shipping for Prime customers. We really recommend the Roku Ultra even at its normal retail price for this for the sheer home entertainment value it offers in exchange. At its 50% discount Black Friday price, it’s nearly a must-buy if you want to seriously diversify your 4K TV’s content options.
The Roku Ultra is of course also a full 4K UHD streamer with complete HDR support and plenty of other connectivity options. Its remote control is very easy to use too and even comes with a headphone jack (and included ergonomic headphones) for private audio if you want to watch a movie at 3 am with the family asleep nearby.
