Roku Streaming Stick+ with 4K HDR Comes to Canada Michael Kwan April 24, 2018 News If anything, Roku has always provided consumers with a wealth of options. Prefer to have a little set top box for your online streaming? They’ve got that. Maybe you want to save a few bucks or you want a solution that’s integrated into the smart TV itself? Yeah, they’ve got that too. And now Canadians have another smart solution in the form of the Roku Streaming Stick+. This, of course, isn’t the first streaming stick to be made available to Canadians, but the Roku Streaming Stick+ (sometimes listed as the Roku Streaming Stick Plus for ease of search) could be one of the most compelling. It comes with several features you may not otherwise find in a device this small and convenient. Like other stick-based streaming solutions, this one plugs straight into the HDMI port in your TV, almost like a flash drive, pulling power from an available USB port. The Roku Streaming Stick+ is the first streaming stick from the company to not only support HD streaming, but also 4K and even 4K HDR content. Under the hood (can you call it a hood?), there’s a quad-core processor running the show. You also get an advanced wireless receiver built into the power cord for up to four times the wireless range and reduced buffering. “The Roku Streaming Stick+ is the best streaming stick we have ever made,” said Chas Smith, general manager of Roku TV and Players. “It is packed with power, and features a remote that controls both TV volume and power. It also includes voice search on the remote for consumers to quickly discover new entertainment to watch.” While the Roku Streaming Stick+ is already available already available in the US for about $70, that one comes loaded with US-centric channels and content. The official Canadian launch is slated for next month, hitting Walmart and other retailers. Expect a Canadian MSRP of $89.99. Share This With The World!
