Is it SE or not?

Since it appeared as the original streaming box, Roku has delivered internet video via box, stick, or embedded TV software. The cheapest device that I can remember seeing is the $15 Roku LE Streaming Player.

The remote costs fifteen dollars.

It is a box that does exactly what you would expect from a Roku player, but it will only be available from and Walmart stores on the 26th. The same box that was offered last year on Black Friday for $17 has been selling at Walmart for $30 or so ever since.

It doesn't matter where the box came from for Walmart and Roku. Walmart gets a box to promote its Black Friday sales. The attention to highlight holiday discounts on more expensive and more capable hardware in its lineup is double dipping, and it inducts a few more of the users that provide, on average, $40 per month in revenue from advertising, commission, and data.

The Roku Streaming Stick 4K is available for less than the usual price of $49.99 on Amazon, Best Buy, and Target. The Streambar is available for $79.99, a $50 discount from its usual price, and the Streaming Stick+ is also available for $29.99, a $50 discount from its usual price. The prices are in place until December 4th.

Is there any reason to keep an eye out for the box if you are shopping on Friday? Not really. You can get a Roku Express for $10 more without any hassle if you buy the Premiere through Saturday.

If you need a replacement IR remote, you can get the latest model from the company, which swaps out the Vudu button for Apple TV Plus, and an individual remote costs just$15.
