Roku just released updated versions of their streaming devices with the Roku Premiere that provides 4K HDR video out to your television and better Wi-Fi, all this for only 49$CA.

If you are looking for something as good but with HD resolution, take a peek at the Roku Express that sells for only 39$CA. It comes with a nice remote and all the cables you need right in the box. Plus you can now use the Private Listening through your mobile or even Voice Search also through the app.

And finally, the Roku Streaming Stick+ is a great solution for when you are on the go at the hotel or at relative houses, you can quickly plug it in the HDMI port and get your content super easily. For 89$CA, this baby has the nice 4K HDR image and a long-range wireless receiver. It also has the remote with the microphone embedded so you can do quick voice search through the remote. It’s also ideal for wall-mounted TVs since it basically takes no room around your television.
