If I had to make a list of “can’t live without it” devices that I use regularly, my Roku Ultra would absolutely be at the top of the list. If you can only have one streaming device, it would be hard to argue for a better choice. Roku is sweetening the appeal immensely by adding their phenomenal Roku Voice Remote Pro to the Ultra bundle!
Roku Ultra is already a great deal at $99.99 just as a streaming box. It offers Dolby Vision/HDR10+/4K, WiFi, and every major streaming service in a snappy and straightforward interface.
But they’re now bundling the Ultra with the $29.99 Roku Voice Remote Pro, so you can just talk to your Roku instead of manually searching for reruns of Property Brothers. You can also set your own personal shortcuts, so if Netflix isn’t your jam and you’re more of a
CNN+ HBO Max fan, you can tweak the remote to your preferences.
Even better, you can use voice commands to locate a lost remote, which is personally extra exciting since my Roku remotes appear to love playing hide and seek.
And if you’re sick of seeing the “low battery” alert on your Roku and wondering, “wait, did I buy batteries recently?” the Roku Voice Remote Pro sports a rechargeable battery.
In addition, Roku is officially rolling out their new OS 11 with photo streaming, improved audio support, and an even more streamlined search and content discovery interface. Basically, it’s a great time to get a Roku, and if you opt for the Roku Ultra, you’ll get a bonus in the form of a smarter remote.
