Looking for a new and better way to watch TV? Then grab yourself the Roku 3 as right now, you can get it for just $87.96 when you use Visa Checkout at Chapters Indigo. It’s usually priced at $109.95, so it’s a 20% discount. Shipping will also be free after Chapters Indigo ships orders over $25 for free.
It’s not the first time that we blog about the Roku but if it’s the first time that you hear about it, then all you need to know is that it’s basically a device that will allow you to stream TV shows and movies.
With it, you can completely get rid of your cable TV and subscribe instead to numerous channels that the Roku offers. In fact, there are more than 1400 to choose from but just keep in mind that some of these are paid subscriptions. For all of you hockey fans, you will be happy to know that there is even an NHL Gamecenter channel with live games, replays, and much more to keep you entertained throughout the year.
There are no reviews for the Roku 3 on Chapters Indigo, but PC Mag gave it a 4/5 stars rating with the following pros, cons and bottom line:
As you can see from the pros, the Roku 3 includes a remote with a headphone jack for private listening and this is an exclusive feature to this generation of the Roku. The previous versions don’t include this and also don’t include the following features, which the Roku 3 now has: voice search, a remote that you can use to point anywhere and motion control for games. The other features are nearly identical to the Roku 2 but it’s the Roku 1 that appears to be the most outdated, so if I were you, I would definitely invest in the most recent one! Check out Roku.com, for a quick reference as to all of the features between the available versions of the Roku.
What’s cool about the Roku though is that you can watch nearly all of the latest movies and TV shows really easily. There are of course plenty more, but to give you an idea, you could watch movies like Step Brothers, Hitch, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, X-Men Days of Future Part, Taken 2 or even Hangover II! Amongst others, you can watch TV shows like Family Guy, Hell on Wheels, The Shield, How I Met Your Mother etc.
The cheapest I have found the Roku 3 anywhere else is actually at Staples, where it’s currently on sale for $99.97 and it’s sold out! So Chapters Indigo’s deal is definitely the best but just make sure to pay using Visa Checkout to benefit from the 20% discount.
