Since I have been pretty busy recently, I have not had as much time to write new blog posts. While I am still constantly finding new things I love to recommend, I wanted to share some of my previous favorite recommendations. Over the course of this blog, I have now written over a year’s worth of posts (375 and counting), so you may have missed some of these along the way!
As cable TV becomes more and more obsolete, streaming services are becoming the new norm. With the recent release of Paramount Plus, all of the major legacy television networks have now released their own streaming platforms. Unless you have a smart TV though, it can be difficult to watch and keep track of all these streaming services.
For $49.99, the Roku Streaming Stick + turns any TV into a smart TV. Rather than constantly having to plug your laptop into the TV or find other creative ways to stream onto your TV, the Roku plugs into an HDMI port and aggregates all of your content together. From its home screen, you can easily access streaming platforms like Netflix, HBO, Disney Plus, etc. It will keep you signed in, so you never have to worry about constantly putting in your username and password. Also, if you do not currently have any of these streaming services, you can sign up directly through Roku and start watching in minutes.
I believe getting a Roku is a great investment if you are a streaming service user. In addition to all of its functionality, it is also super portable, so you can easily take it from one TV in your house to another. The convenience of being able to access any service in seconds is great, and will definitely be worth it in the long run!
