If you are thinking about getting a streaming stick for your older TV, you can do so now: The Roku sticks are currently available at Amazon at a great discount.
The sticks, which are equipped with HD or 4K capability, not only offer the usual streaming services, but also Apple TV, AirPlay 2 and the option of integrating them into HomeKit. And all that for $20 or $29!
The user interface is kept very simple, but that can also be a strong advantage for many. The remote is made of plastic and can sometimes fall off and there are useful buttons, but not too many.
So even if you’re just looking for a way to upgrade AirPlay 2 for your high tech TV, the current prices are a great deal. If you want to do the whole thing with a small Apple TV HD, which is admittedly a bit more performant, you’ll have to spend around $150. Or you can buy a Roku Stick – and still have enough budget left over to give six other people a Roku each for Christmas.
