Roku fans looking to upgrade their streaming devices will get a chance to do so very inexpensively on Black Friday. This comes at fortuitous time for some Roku owners who will loose access to Netflix due to the Streaming Services plan to shut down support for the kind of DRM security they employ. This includes older products like the original Roku 2 lineup the Roku XD, XS, HD and LT. These 10 year old models have been getting a bit long in the tooth and will have trouble supporting new services from more than Netflix going forward. So it’s helpful that users will be able to take advantage of deals on current products. Two of its top products will be available for almost half price including the Roku Streaming Stick+ and the Roku Ultra. The Roku streaming Stick+ has been one of my favorite streaming devices since it launched two years back because of its wifi booster. It allows the product to work in more places further away from a centralized router and allows users to control the power and volume on nearly any TV with an HDMI port. The Ultra is Roku’s top product featuring a very fast processor and my favorite feature, a button that makes the remote control play a tone so you can find it when its been misplaced. Trust me that is a game changer. The new Roku sounder will be sold at a reduced price as well.
