Roku gets brilliant freebie this month Fire TV fans will be jealous
The Fire TV Stick may be one of the most popular streaming devices in the world, but one of its biggest rivals is trying to tempt TV addicts to switch. Right now, anyone who picks up a new Roku device will be able to get 30 days of Discovery+ absolutely free. The streaming service — which is also available as a Prime Video channel — will be available at no cost to anyone who buys a streaming device such as Roku Express HD and Roku Express 4K or a Roku-powered TV. To claim the free portion, simply activate your new Roku device and add the Discovery+ channel.
Doing so will give you free access to popular shows like Ghost Adventures (which you can watch to get you in the Halloween mood), 90 Day Fiancé UK and Gold Rush.
You’ll also get access to the huge back catalog of popular documentaries and reality shows created by Discovery, such as Deadliest Catch and the Faking It series.
This Discovery+ freebie will be available with Roku devices until January 15, 2023 – so you’ll have plenty of time to claim this offer.
Just remember that your Discovery+ subscription will automatically renew, so if you don’t want to continue using it after the free trial is over, you’ll need to cancel before then. Otherwise, you will be charged the typical fee of £4.99 per month for the entertainment plan.
If you’re in the market for a Roku device, Amazon UK is one of the few places you can get cash at the moment.
Right now, Amazon is running a deal on the Roku Express HD. This popular gadget is priced at £29.99 but is currently available for £26.49.
Express HD is the entry-level Roku streaming device and gives you access to thousands of free and paid channels.
You’ll be able to tune into popular apps like iPlayer, NOW and Prime Video via your Roku device, while the remote is equipped with shortcut buttons that let you easily access Netflix and Disney+ quickly.
Elsewhere, the Roku Channel, accessible on all Roku devices, offers an ever-evolving selection of free movies, box sets and more.
If you like the sound of all this but are looking for a major living room upgrade, head over to the Argos website, which runs deals on Roku powered TVs.
The retailer is running a number of special offers on Roku devices that give you cash back when you buy a soundbar with your new TV.
The cheapest Roku-powered TV available on the Argos website is a 43-inch TV made by Hisense.
This 4K LED TV is available for just £249.
You can also get cash back on Samsung or Phillips soundbars when you buy this TV and get four months of free Spotify Premium.
