The Amazon Fire TV Stick has another new contender to contend with with this latest device that not only features full access to all the most popular streaming apps but also a gigantic screen. Roku, which makes a number of popular TV-enhancing accessories, has joined forces with tech giant RCA to launch a new TV with full smart functionality and the Roku platform built-in.
This means there is no need to purchase additional dongles or set-top boxes as everything you need to enjoy an endless collection of boxes comes tucked away behind the monitor.
To make things even more attractive, these connected connections are priced From just £129.99 on Amazon.
This lower cost is for the 32-inch model, but if that isn’t big enough for your living room, there are also 40-inch and 55-inch versions available.
A 40in Roku TV costs £169.99 while you can pick up a 55in for £269.99 – this more affordable device gets full 4K for a crystal clear picture.
Thanks to this Roku software, there is easy access to all the most popular premium platforms like Disney+ and Netflix as well as free content found on Freeview Play, BBC iPlayer, ITVX, All 4 and My5.
All Roku users can also access the Roku Channel, with free entertainment including the critically acclaimed feature film Weird: The Al Yankovic Story, starring Daniel Radcliffe.
Othe features on Roku TV models include automatic updates, a customizable home screen, and a powerful global search function that displays results sorted by price.
As a final bonus, consumers who purchase an RCA Roku TV can enjoy 30 days of discovery + at no additional cost when they activate their new account.
