They put most of the so-called smart televisions, especially those that are more than a couple of years, to shame. All you need to deliver is a Wi-Fi connection and maybe the monthly subscription fees.

Roku SE: $ 20


This product is exclusive to Walmart, but if you go on black Friday you can buy the impulse as well. Roku tells us that SE is basically identical to the “very good enough” Roku Express (see overview link below), albeit with more focus on the Walmart-owned Vudu service. And that’s white.

Unfortunately, Roku SE is only available in the store on Walmart on Black Friday November 23, while the consumables last.
