Roku Has A 4K Option, Adequately Priced At $40
Looking to stream your favorite content in 4K for not that much dough?
The Roku Premiere is now available, and it’s going to make the viewing a lot easier with a 4K HDR video function. If you’re familiar with Roku’s, they are small boxes that you are able to stream video content from, and from the best sites, aka Netflix, Amazon, YouTube, Vudu and more.
If you have a 4K TV, then this will be a great option for you, but the Premiere Plus version at $50 has some extra tidbits, including not needing the box out in the open to change the “channels” if you will, along with a voice command for searching.
