Smart TVs are cool and all, but there's something about the versatility of streaming devices like the Roku Streaming Stick+ that makes them worth the pickup — even if you already own a TV with smart functionality. Have you ever been on vacation wanting to watch the latest season of Stranger Things or The Handmaiden's Tale yet didn't have a smart TV in your hotel room? The Roku Streaming Stick+ plugs in via HDMI so you can add smarts to pretty much any TV, along with access to all the popular streaming services like Netflix, Hulu, and Prime Video. It'll even be able to access Disney+ once it debuts in November. This model is built to stream 4K content, though you'll need a 4K TV as well to score the best picture quality.

Making sure you're prepared to stream wherever you go just became even more affordable, as the Roku Streaming Stick+ is now on sale for $49 at Amazon. Several other retailers such as Walmart and Best Buy are offering this deal too, and you may want to buy there instead as they include a few bonuses which Amazon doesn't. At Walmart, you'd score a $5 credit for Vudu, a digital movie and TV show retailer, while Best Buy includes a $30 promo credit for Sling TV + STARZ so you can stream live TV channels for over two months for free.

There's another bonus which everyone who buys a Roku Streaming Stick+ before October 5 can snag; New owners who activate their device before that date can receive 30-day free trials of Showtime, STARZ, and EPIX movie channels. More info can be found here.

It was recently announced that the Amazon Fire TV Stick wouldn't have access to Disney+ upon its debut come November 12, though Roku's streaming devices will! While it's likely that the Fire TV devices will gain access to Disney+ soon enough, there's no telling when that could be at this point.

The standard Roku Streaming Stick is on sale at Amazon and other retailers for a limited time as well.
