roku streaming stick

Roku has announced it'll knock £20 off the price of its Streaming Stick on Friday.

The streaming device will sell for just £29.99, down from the usual £49.99.

The deal is part of Black Friday, a big discounted shopping day which originated in the US.

The Roku Streaming Stick works just like Google's Chromecast. Plug it into your TV and you can stream films, TV shows and music from a host of services, including BBC iPlayer, All 4, ITV Hub, Demand 5, Netflix, Now TV, Sky Store and Amazon Prime Instant Video.

You don't need a smart TV to make it work – it's compatible with any telly with an HDMI port, effectively turning it into a smart set.

The stick comes with its own remote, with dedicated buttons for quick access to Netflix and YouTube. Or you can control it with your smartphone using the Roku apps for iOS, Android and Windows Phone.

The deal is available from tomorrow at Roku's site, Currys PC World, Maplin and Tesco Direct. But better hurry, like most Black Friday deals it won't last long.
