Roku Streaming Stick

 

Is the Streaming Stick a genuine Chromecast rival?

Plenty of channels ; Smartphone works great as remote control ; Very easy to use

Some slow loading times ; Takes a while to set up

In the top right hand corner is a drop down where you can move from Remote view to look at ‘My Channels’ the ‘Channel Store’ and send content to the Roku from your phone: specifically music and photos. The music has to be stored on the device so it...

Roku Streaming Stick review

 

Not the smoothest operator around, but the Roku Streaming Service has a good bag of tricks

Good picture and sound Features are plentiful and versatile

Power supply arrangement could be neater Chunky design may not fit smaller spaces Operation is not nearly as slick as its best rivals

When we first reviewed the Roku Streaming Stick, we gave it five stars. It’s still an impressive little package for the money, but there are better alternatives. Review updated on 27.02.15 MORE: How to add catch-up TV and online movies to your TV

The Roku Streaming Stick plugs into your HDMI for easy streaming

Simple setup ; Great app selection ; Bargain price

No extender cable provided ; No 'casting' from web yet ; No Amazon Prime Instant video

Roku Streaming Stick review

 

If you haven't bought a TV for the last couple of years then chances are it is not "smart". If you want the latest streaming and catch-up services without the cost implication of signing up to the binding contracts for a set-top box, then there are...

Small size, remains out of sight, easy to use, plenty of free catch-up and pay-for service access, responsive remote isn't IR based, app to ping personal content to TV

Requires separate power source, no headphone-capable remote, Chromecast competition, non-HDMI tellies won't work, nine tiles per UI screen limit

If you are looking to enhance your living room, or as we more likely suspect "smarten" a second TV in the house, then the Roku Streaming Stick does a good job. With full support of services like Netflix, Now TV, Sky Store, Demand 5, and 4oD, the Roku...

Roku Streaming Stick review

 

All of Roku's streaming prowess in a little Chromecast-rivaling dongle? Don't mind if we do

Tiny and discreet ; Very affordable ; Good range of apps ; Can stream your own stuff

Requires power via USB

There are now many options if you want a budget streamer, but this is the best so far

Roku Streaming Stick+ 2017 review: 4K HDR powerhouse

 

If you want to add 4K HDR streaming services to your telly, complete with access to private channels and impressive WiFi capabilities, the seriously smart and compact Streaming Stick+ from Roku is one…

4K HDR support ; Enhanced WiFi range ; Simple setup ; Great channel selection ; Private listening app

No Dolby Vision support

If you want a streaming device that allows you the extra range to work anywhere in your home, the Streaming Stick+ is ideal. The remote that controls the TV as well as the Roku box itself is a brilliantly simple yet effective addition, while the app...

Roku Streaming Stick review

 

Google has shaken up the set-top box market with the Chromecast. Roku's answer is the Streaming Stick so here's our review.

The Roku Streaming Stick is one of the best media streamers around and worth the extra money compared with the Chromecast if you want more content at your fingertips plus the physical remote control and user interface.

Roku Streaming Stick review: one of the best streaming devices you can buy today

 

Unless you have very little to spend, this £50 streaming device is one of the best you can buy in the UK today.

The Stick can stream from lots of TV services, including iPlayer, Now TV and Netflix. It comes with a proper remote and you can neatly hide the box behind your TV if it has a USB port. Picture and audio quality are decent and the whole package is cheap...

Some channels are slow to load, there's no Ethernet port or universal search like on the US model, and there are some unfortunate omissions from the services it supports.

Unless you have very little to spend, this is one of the best streaming devices you can buy in the UK today.

Roku Streaming Stick (3500EU) review

  (Rating Hidden)

The Roku Streaming Stick (3500EU) is the latest addition to the Roku range, joining the three black boxes that it currently offers. It's not much bigger than a memory stick, so how does it compare to larger rival models? We tested one out in our lab to...
