There was a time when your TVs had to have certain features for them to be considered smart TVs. However, with the advent of devices like Google Chromecast and Roku, the only thing you need to turn your old, traditional TV into a smart one is an HDMI port. Connect one of these devices to your TV via HDMI, and you have instant access to all the features that a smart TV offers.
If you’re looking to get such a device for your TV, Roku Ultra should be your top choice due to all the great features it offers. Roku’s Ultra 4K version offers you some interesting shows and movies in 4K quality. It supports wireless as well as wired Internet connections, so you’re connected to the Internet no matter what your network system is like.
The great thing about Roku is its limitless options of media sources. You can watch Roku’s very own streaming channel, watch HBO, link your Netflix and Amazon Prime accounts, and even watch Hulu live right on your television. The device has USB and microSD ports for you to connect your own USB drives and consume content.
In addition to saving money on your cable bills, you can save money on the Roku device itself in the Amazon deal that’s running right now. Normally available for $99.99, the Roku Ultra 4K is now available for just $78.99, a savings of 21 percent. You’ll definitely want to grab the deal while it lasts to save yourself from the huge monthly bills for services that are available in Roku.
