It has been a strange year for many of us, but the tumultuous last few months does at least mean that Black Friday deals have started early with many major retailers launching their biggest sale of the year a little earlier than usual. If you’re looking for a new Roku streaming device, this is the ideal time with some fantastic Black Friday Roku deals out there.
There’s no harm in purchasing now either with key merchants offering price guarantees on just about everything, including Black Friday TV deals, that mean the price will stay the same through to the end of the month. In the unlikely case there are further price drops, both Best Buy and Walmart have offered to refund the difference on offers between now and November 28.

How to choose a Roku during Black Friday
There are plenty of different Roku devices out there which can make it confusing to know what’s best for you. As always, it’s important to know your budget before you go nuts and spend too much. We also recommend checking out our best streaming devices guide so you buy the best streamer for you.
If you simply want something that you can plug into your TV and get watching your favorite shows, something like the Roku Express is a good starting point, covering all the basics.
Alternatively, if you want 4K and HDR support then the Roku Streaming Stick+ is the one for you, providing a superior picture while still being highly portable and lightweight.
One thing to watch out for during the sale season is the Roku Ultra. It works like the Apple TV because it’s more than just a stick, offering a powerful processor, voice controls, and the ability to hook it up via Ethernet or Wi-Fi connection. There are currently two versions of the Ultra available with the Roku Ultra 2019 edition being the better value proposition as it’s older but the 2020 version offering Dolby Vision, Dolby Atmos, and Bluetooth — something that’s worth keeping an eye out during the holiday sales.
Finally, there’s the Roku Streambar which works as a smart soundbar that provides Dolby Audio for your TV while also offering all the benefits that come with a soundbar. Effectively, it’s a two-in-one solution and sure to be a big hit with anyone looking for superior sound as well as streaming capabilities.
Don’t forget to keep an eye out for Roku TVs too if you need a new display. Brands like TCL, Hisense, JVC, and RCA all offer smart TVs with Roku built-in to them.
