Roku Streambar with TV
Justin Duino / Review Geek

The Roku Streambar is a streaming device and TV speaker crammed into one device, making it an excellent control center for your TV experience. Now it’s on sale for the best price yet.

Roku has discounted its Streambar device to $79.99, a 38% reduction from the original price of $129.99. It’s a soundbar that connects to your TV with an HDMI ARC connection (optical audio is also supported), with more powerful and better-sounding speakers than just about every modern TV. The Streambar also houses a Roku streaming player, giving you easy access to most streaming services and other online content. It supports 4K HDR, but not Dolby Vision or Dolby Atmos, and it can function as a Bluetooth speaker.

The Roku Streambar combines a Roku streaming device and excellent soundbar into a single convenient package.

The main catch with the Roku Streambar is that it doesn’t have any HDMI inputs. That means if you want to connect other devices, like a Bluray player or game console, they have to connect directly to the TV. Most modern TVs should still route the audio to the soundbar, thanks to HDMI ARC, but you might need to use the optical audio port as a fallback. There’s also no subwoofer, but that’s to be expected at this price — Roku sells one separately for $180.

This is far from the first time the Streambar has been on sale, but most previous discounts haven’t gone lower than $100. This steeper discount is a great deal, especially if you’re looking to upgrade your TV’s software and audio quality in one move.
