That's just one of the many ways to save at Woot today because the Roku deal is part of a larger sale called "These are a few of Tech's favorite things."

Hook yourself up with some headphones, a digital camera, or even a remote control monster truck.

The Roku Streaming Stick is a powerful portable streaming device that comes with a voice remote. You'll be able to navigate to your favorite shows, turn down the volume, and more just by asking. It's also compatible with a free mobile app on iOS and Android devices which has a Private Listening feature so that whatever's playing on the Roku Streaming Stick can only be heard through headphones plugged into your phone. The app works as a remote as well.

You will want to make sure you have an HDCP 2.2 HDMI input on your TV so you can play copyrighted content, but that's pretty common for most TVs. The Streaming Stick plays content up to 1080p and has up-scaling from 720p.

Like any Roku device, you'll be able to use it to access Roku's smart platform with 500,000 movies and TV shows and access to your favorite streaming services like Netflix, Hulu, and HBO Now.
