Is your TV feeling a little stale?
One of the best ways to upgrade an older TV is though video streaming. Access to HBO Go, Netflix and Hulu can give an older model new life. No need to play around with fussy ports and cables — just add a device like the Roku Express HD to your older HD TV to gain access to thousands of channels and services. It’s a small and lightweight tool that instantly converts an older TV into a streaming powerhouse. The best thing? It’s on sale for just $27, or $13 off its retail price at Walmart. That’s a 33 percent discount!
Normally retailing for $40, the Roku Express HD consists of only three pieces: The streaming device itself, a Roku remote, and an HDMI cable to plug into your TV. That’s it!
Once the device is synced to your home WiFi network, you’ll have access to over 500,000 streaming channels like Amazon Prime Video, ESPN, CBS All Access, SlingTV, and so much more. In fact, the Roku comes with free 30-day trials to Showtime, Starz, and Epix via the Roku Channel.
The “pick-up-and-go” user interface and remote make it the easiest streaming device ever. You’ll feel like an expert as soon as you get set up and begin perusing through all the available channels. Even if you lose the remote, you can use your smartphone to control the streaming device via the Roku app.

But don’t just take our word for it. Here are just two of over 9,400 overjoyed reviews on Walmart.com.
“I got my Roku Stick and finished setting it all up, today!” one enthusiastic reviewer raved. “I went through and chose a bunch of my fave TV channels, to start out with. Also looked over music channels, movie channels and various other free offerings (free games). I wish I had known about this alternative to cable, a lot sooner! The Roku ‘stick’ is inexpensive, $29.00, with no monthly fees. It is so easy to install and set-up. Then watch just about anything. Some channels require payment, for a subscription (like Netflix, Hulu, BritBox, etc..) but there is so much content available, for FREE, it makes the Roku totally worth the $29.00 price tag. Plus, I finally cut the cord, with cable! Buh bye, crummy overpriced cable company! I will not miss you, or your monthly $150 bill, AT ALL!!! Love this Roku! Two thumbs up!!!”
“I purchased two Roku devices about two months ago,” another shopper shared. “The Roku Express and the Roku Express Plus and it was an east set up, easy to get used to. I needed a different setup instead of using cable(too expensive) and I genuinely prefer this over it!”
