Want a new TV without shelling out big bucks? One of the best ways to upgrade a TV is to simply add a streaming device to it. It’s a great opportunity to get access to Netflix, Hulu, Disney+ and HBO while also giving an old TV new life. Enter the Roku Premiere, a small and lightweight tool that instantly converts a behind-the-times TV into a 4K streaming powerhouse.

This Roku Premiere is on sale for just $24, or $16 off for Black Friday at Amazon. That’s a 40 percent savings and the all-time lowest price ever!

And if you have Amazon Prime, you’ll get free shipping, of course. Not yet a member? No problem. You can sign up for your free 30-day trial here. (And by the way, those without Prime still get free shipping on orders of $25 or more.)

The Roku Premiere consists of only three pieces: The streaming device itself, a Roku remote and an HDMI cable to plug into your TV. That’s it.

“Easy to set up. Easy to use. Works great,” raved a delighted five-star reviewer. “I have been using Roku since they first came out and every version gets better. This one will not disappoint. I have owned many of them and right now I have three of this model in my house. I cut the cord a year ago and it's nearly impossible to do that without a Roku.”

Once the Roku device is synced to your home Wi-Fi network, you’ll have access to over 500,000 streaming channels like Disney+, Amazon Prime Video, ESPN+, CBS All Access, SlingTV and more—all in glorious 4K. So get comfy on the couch and start streaming episodes of The Mandalorian on Disney+ or The Crown on Netflix like nobody’s business.

The ‘pick-up-and-go’ user interface and remote make it the easiest streaming device ever. You’ll feel like an expert as soon as you get set up and begin perusing through all the available channels. Even if you lose the remote, you can use your smartphone to control the streaming device via the Roku app. It also makes a great gift for grandpa too!

“I bought myself a Roku TV as an upgrade from my old TV and decided to buy my grandpa a Roku device for his TV too, thinking he might enjoy watching it from time to time,” shared a satisfied Amazon shopper. “He doesn't get technology like computers very well but the Roku OS is really straightforward so I wasn't concerned. If you're buying this for someone who isn't ‘with’ technology, I'd recommend setting up all the channels for them so they don't have to navigate the channel store or have to log themselves into anything. But after that, it's a breeze!”
