Looking for a streaming upgrade? Maybe you've got an old Roku device that's a little slow or missing some desirable features. Maybe you're not happy with the app selection that's built into your smart TV. Whatever the case, I've got a pretty spectacular streaming deal for you.
For a limited time, and while supplies last, Walmart's early Black Friday sale includes the Roku Ultra LT for just $30.

One extra buck buys you a lot more streamer.
The Ultra LT supports HD and 4K video with HDR, which is a lot of tech-speak for "it delivers super-sharp, super-vibrant images." It does all this using a quad-core processor, meaning menu navigation and streaming start-up should feel very snappy.
