Smart TVs are becoming increasingly more affordable which pushes the question: should you shell out a lot of cash for a smart TV or should you simply buy a Roku to help transform your TV in to a streaming paradise? The answer really depends on if you’re looking to upgrade your entertainment or simply add to it to make streaming available to you. If you have a basic flat screen TV or an older TV model and don’t want to update to a new TV, all you have to have is a Roku box and wifi internet to start streaming. A Roku box can be purchased through their comprehensive website for as low as $49.99. Although this is their simplest model, this Roku will allow you to stream sites like Netflix and Hulu though your TV with a clear HD reception.
The basic Roku box works just as well as the one that sells for $69 and $99. The higher end Roku that sells for $129.99 may just cause you to want to buy a smart TV. Smart TVs are often only $150 to $200 more expensive then a regular flat screen TVs. Since they are built with better hardware, Smart TVs tend to last longer and make for a more solid investment choice.
With more and more people cutting their cable cords, streaming television shows and movies are becoming a normal part of everyday of life.
