Roku's new streaming stick challenges Chromecast

Lucas Mearian | March 6, 2014
Roku's new iteration of its streaming media stick chops the price from $99 to $49 and it now works with any TV. And it's not just looks that make it different from Chromecast.

The old Roku Ready version used a Mobile High Definition Link (MHL)-enabled HDMI port. The new stick works with any HDMI port.

The new Roku Streaming Stick has a retail price of $49 in the U.S. and $59 in Canada. In the U.K., it will retail for 49 Euros.

The Roku Streaming Stick will be available in April. Like its predecessor, the new streaming stick can be purchased online at retail sites such as Amazon.com, BestBuy.com and Staples.com as well as on Roku's own website.

Roku also plans to add additional mobile features such as the ability to stream content from a computer to a TV.
