Roku Streaming Stick+; $60
For the less savvy streamers, Roku’s Streaming Stick+ is a great fit. Unlike the Chromecast, the Roku Streaming Stick+ actually utilizes an on-screen interface to organize and use apps and channels, which users can download for free from the Roku store. The Stick+ also comes with a small, easy-to-understand remote that includes buttons that take users directly to popular channels like ESPN+, Netflix, and Hulu. In addition to its slick user interface, streaming capabilities (it can handle 4K and HDR), and flash drive size, it’s the device’s channel selection that really stands out. The Roku Channel Store supports thousands of channels that users can download, including the aforementioned trio plus Prime Video, Spotify, YouTube TV, and more. You can customize the organization to make it easy to navigate around quickly, Also, in addition to the subscription services available, Roku customers also get access the The Roku Channel, which features a bunch of free-to-stream movies and shows.
