(Pocket-lint) – There’s currently a discount running on the Roku Streambar, one of the very latest devices from the streaming supremos.
The deal slashes £30 off the price of the Streambar, bringing the price down to £99 in many retailers.
The Roku Streambar looks to solve the problem that older TVs face, adding connectivity for all the streaming services you could want, in a package that gives you a compact soundbar too. That means you get great content and great audio from one box – a simple and effective TV upgrade for your bedroom, dorm room or second TV.
The Streambar offers all the services that other Roku devices will give you, including AirPlay 2, Google Cast and Spotify Connect, while also acting as a Bluetooth speaker if you want it to. The sound quality is great as is the stability of streaming, with HDMI and optical connections to hook-up to your TV.
In our Roku Streambar review we said it “slots into a position where its offering is somewhat unique: it kills two birds with one stone, boosting audio performance without costing a lot of money, while providing access to one of the most complete streaming platforms available.”
“It’s easy to criticise the Streambar for the things it lacks because it’s a smaller and more affordable package, but we think the market for this type of device is well defined. This is for that second TV that needs an audio lift; for that college or university room where you want to boost the performance and connectivity of your TV.”
