Dreaming of ditching cable? With streaming quickly becoming the go-to way to binge watch, it’s hardly a surprise that droves of former cable lovers are transitioning to streaming devices — namely, the Roku.
The Roku Ultra — on sale for an all-time low price of $69, down from $100 — gets you access to HBO Max, Hulu, Netflix, Disney+ and more. It’s a must for older TV sets that don't have built-in streaming, or if you’re just tired of watching Schitt’s Creek or Emily in Paris on a tiny tablet, laptop or phone screen.
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.)
One of the brand's most powerful devices, the Roku Ultra turns any TV with an HDMI port into a smart TV. It supports Wi-Fi and wired streaming via Ethernet for a smooth and steady HD and 4K Ultra HD picture quality. Translation: You’ll notice little loading time or buffering. Thanks to HDR (High Dynamic Range), you'll get vivid colors, inky black levels and the sharpest picture imaginable.
The Roku Ultra can access more than 500,000 streaming channels (more than any other platform out there), including Amazon Prime Video, Apple TV and SlingTV. It has a built-in USB port for thumb drives and external hard drives (a rarity on 4K streamers these days), so you can bring your own media and photos to the party.
Shoppers can't get enough. "Very easy to set up and add the channels I wanted," raved a five-star reviewer. "I was blown away that it automatically programmed itself to my TV...The remote find feature is a must... Very fast and we even love the aquarium screensaver."
At $69 (was $100), the Roku Ultra even comes with a special remote control that features a headphone jack, so you can listen to your TV without disturbing the rest of your household. Just plug the included JBL headphones into the remote to automatically go into private viewing mode. Sweet.
A former soldier fired gunshots in a coronavirus field hospital in Thailand on Thursday, killing a 54-year-old patient after earlier shooting dead a convenience store employee, police said. The suspect, 23, believed that the patients in the hospital in Pathum Thani near Bangkok were drug addicts and that he hated drug addicts, regional police chief Amphol Buarabporn told Reuters, after an initial investigation. The field hospital was once a drug rehabilitation centre and was reorganised to treat COVID-19 patients.
It said Tink would retain its brand and management team, and its headquarters would stay in Stockholm. Visa would fund the deal from cash on hand and the acquisition would have no impact on Visa's previously announced stock buyback programme or dividend policy, it said.
A Cabinet minister has signalled the end of compulsory mask wearing in England within weeks. Environment Secretary George Eustice stressed the Government was aiming to remove the legal requirement to don a face covering in many public places on July 19. “But the objective of that final stage is to remove the legal requirement to do these things.”
Brazil's Environment Minister stepped down on Wednesday amid a criminal inquiry into whether he obstructed a police probe of illegal logging in the Amazon.A Supreme Court justice authorised an investigation into Ricardo Salles this month.That's after federal police raids targeted the minister and other officials alleged to have allowed illegal wood exports.Salles addressed a crowd of reporters in the capital Brasilia."I understand that Brazil throughout this year and next on the international stage and also in the national agenda needs to have a strong union of interests. So that this can be done in the most serene manner possible, I submitted my resignation."Salles had been leading U.S.-Brazil talks over funding to preserve the world's largest rainforest.But sources familiar with the matter say, with the last meeting held more than a month ago, those negotiations have stalled.The sources also say that it was unclear if the delay was related to the outgoing minister. Both Salles and right-wing President Jair Bolsonaro have been widely criticised by activists over surging deforestation in the Amazon, since Bolsonaro took office in 2019. In a recorded cabinet meeting, Salles said the Brazilian government should push through environmental deregulation while the public was distracted by the global health crisis.
