Roku 3 - $84.99 at Amazon

Roku 3 Streaming Media Player is currently $84.99 at Amazon. This is the lowest price I've seen for this model.



  • Faster and more powerful. With up to 1080p HD video and extended-range, dual-band wireless performance for increased speed.
  • Amazing remote with headphone jack. Use the included in-ear headphones to crank up that late-night flick while the kids (or parents) sleep.
  • One-stop search. Find your favorite movies and TV shows all from one place - from top TV and Movie services like Netflix, Amazon Instant Video or Hulu Plus.
  • 1000+ channels and growing. The best selection of streaming out there. Everything from Netflix to Hulu Plus to HBO GO to Major League Baseball.
  • Free iOS and Android device app. Use it like a remote. Browse and add new channels. Even stream your music and photos from your phone or tablet to your HDTV.

Awesome deal.

I paid $103 after tax at Target last week.

I've been tempted to buy a Roku for years, and want to ditch cable. There's not a Roku 4 right around the corner is there?

Roku 3 just came out a couple months ago. Major updates seem to be every 2 years. So I wouldn't expect Roku 4 until late-2014/early-2015.

Having just cut cable last week and enjoying the hell out of my Roku 3, I can't imagine ever ponying up $70+ again for cable. I now pay for three shows a la carte on Amazon, but the rest of my "must-watch" TV is available on Hulu+ ($7.99 a month) and Netflix ($10), in HD, and available whenever I want to watch them (on my TV, on my laptop, on my phone).
