$59.99 www.roku.com

Overview

The Roku Streaming Stick™ (HDMI® version) makes it easy to enjoy the best selection of streaming entertainment on TV. Featuring a compact design pioneered by Roku®, the Roku Streaming Stick plugs discreetly into the HDMI port for a streamlined look that’s ideal for wall-mounted TVs.

For the best TV experience, the entire household can use the included remote to access the sleek Roku user interface with shortcuts to movies, TV shows, news, the Roku Channel Store, Roku Search and more. Those who desire a mobile experience can use their smartphone or tablet (along with the free Roku apps for Android™ and iOS® devices) to browse and select channels to stream. Users can also cast Netflix, YouTube and personal media from their mobile device to their TV. Over time Roku will add additional mobile features such as the ability to cast content from a computer to the TV.

Once plugged in, the Roku Streaming Stick lets consumers start streaming from more than 500 channels of movies, TV episodes, music, news, sports, kids' shows and free programming – more channels and genres than any other TV streaming device – and all in up to 1080p HD video.
