The Roku Streaming Stick+ features a long-range wireless receiver and enables Bluetooth streaming. It packs all the features of the Roku Express 4K+ into a smaller, more concealable device. Rather than connecting to a TV via cable, it connects directly to an HDMI port. Please note that the Roku Streaming Stick+ still needs to be plugged into a power source – either via a TV USB input or a wall outlet.

“It doesn’t have the same bells and whistles as my Roku Ultras…but then again, I paid almost twice as much for it,” Amazon reviewer K. Krueger wrote on the site. “This Stick+ is a lot cheaper and offers basically the same user interface and playback performance.”

Roku Streaming Stick+, $43
