Roku now does 4K streaming for less than $ 50. That’s pretty much all you need to know.

This is going to be one of those reviews where we spoil everything from the jump. Roku Premiere (and the Walmart-exclusive Premiere+) bring 4K streaming down to under $ 50.

That’s it. That’s the important part. Everything else is secondary.
