Roku added two new stickers to its line of portable media players this week to rival Amazon. The Roku Streaming Stick 4K and Roku Streaming Stick 4K+ feature Dolby Vision and HDR10+ technology along with a new quad-core processor that's 30% faster than its predecessor. Meanwhile, the redesigned long-range wireless receiver is said to double the speed of Wi-Fi. With all of this in mind, content should download faster and feel navigating faster than ever.
The Roku Streaking Stick 4K comes with the Roku Voice Remote standard, while the Roku Streaming Stick 4K+ includes a newer version of the Roku Voice Remote Pro. The upgraded controller includes a rechargeable battery and a remote finder. To activate the useful feature, simply say, “Hey Roku, my remote” I lost control a few weeks ago and was able to put this feature to good use.
Amazon introduced its first Fire TV Stick 4K Max earlier this month, which adds faster hardware support and Wi-Fi 6 technology, all for under $55. Roku has also updated the Roku Ultra LT with a faster processor, more storage space, and an improved Wi-Fi radio that offers 50% more range than the previous model. Dolby Vision is also added, and you'll also receive built-in Bluetooth and Ethernet audio streaming. This Walmart franchise will launch in the coming weeks and will pay you $79.99. The Plus version with remote control costs $69.99.
As an added bonus, eligible buyers who purchase and activate a new Roku player from October 2, 2021 to January 14, 2022 will be eligible for free. 30-day trial membership to HBO Max. Walmart shoppers can also use a $5 Redbox Coupon. Simply search for the code in the retail box and use it in the Redbox app.
