Dreaming of ditching cable? With streaming quickly becoming the go-to way to binge watch, it’s hardly a surprise that droves of former cable lovers are transitioning to streaming devices — namely, the Roku.
The Roku Ultra — on sale for an all-time low price of $69, down from $100 — gets you access to HBO Max, Hulu, Netflix, Disney+ and more. It’s a must for older TV sets that don't have built-in streaming, or if you’re just tired of watching Schitt’s Creek or Emily in Paris on a tiny tablet, laptop or phone screen.
And if you have Amazon Prime, you’ll get free shipping, of course. Not yet a member? No problem. You can sign up for your free 30-day trial here. (And by the way, those without Prime still get free shipping on orders of $25 or more.)
One of the brand's most powerful devices, the Roku Ultra turns any TV with an HDMI port into a smart TV. It supports Wi-Fi and wired streaming via Ethernet for a smooth and steady HD and 4K Ultra HD picture quality. Translation: You’ll notice little loading time or buffering. Thanks to HDR (High Dynamic Range), you'll get vivid colors, inky black levels and the sharpest picture imaginable.
The Roku Ultra can access more than 500,000 streaming channels (more than any other platform out there), including Amazon Prime Video, Apple TV and SlingTV. It has a built-in USB port for thumb drives and external hard drives (a rarity on 4K streamers these days), so you can bring your own media and photos to the party.
Shoppers can't get enough. "Very easy to set up and add the channels I wanted," raved a five-star reviewer. "I was blown away that it automatically programmed itself to my TV...The remote find feature is a must... Very fast and we even love the aquarium screensaver."
At $69 (was $100), the Roku Ultra even comes with a special remote control that features a headphone jack, so you can listen to your TV without disturbing the rest of your household. Just plug the included JBL headphones into the remote to automatically go into private viewing mode. Sweet.
An own goal in the first half and a late second from Edinson Cavani gave Uruguay a 2-0 win over Bolivia on Thursday and guaranteed their place in the last eight of the Copa America. Uruguay have won this tournament more than any other country but they have laboured so far this year, losing 1-0 to Argentina, drawing 1-1 with Chile and failing to shine against a Bolivian side whose last away win was 32 games ago in Myanmar. They huffed and puffed through the first half in Cuiaba and needed a stroke of luck to take the lead five minutes before half time when Jairo Quinteros and Carlos Lampe combined to put through their own goal.
Boycotting an Olympics should be up to individual athletes not politicians, says U.S. Alpine skiing great Lindsey Vonn, as calls mount to move or reject the 2022 Beijing Winter Games over China's human rights record. A four-times Olympian, Vonn's opinion on boycotts has not altered in retirement, believing the Games can be a catalyst for change and spotlighting issues like China's treatment of Uighur Muslims which Washington has called genocide. "If athletes want to boycott that's their prerogative and their right," Vonn told Reuters.
The Swiss coach Lucien Favre has turned down the chance to take over as manager at Crystal Palace, preferring instead to take an extended career break before he embarks on his next job. The 63-year-old last worked at Borussia Dortmund where he left in December after a run of bad results and had originally planned to take a long break from the game. He met with Palace over the vacancy at Selhurst Park but decided that the time was not yet right for him to return to management. He had been an attr

Lewis Hamilton is worried for the safety of the British public following what he described as a “premature” decision to allow 140,000 fans to attend next month’s grand prix at Silverstone. Circuit organisers have been permitted to sell out for the entire July 16-18 weekend, paving the way for the biggest UK crowd since the start of the pandemic. But seven-time world champion Hamilton, who has won the British Grand Prix more times than any driver in Formula One history, questioned the logic behin
Young players have been left “devastated” by Arsenal’s decision to close down their Women’s Player Development Programme (PDP) for girls aged seven to 15, Telegraph Sport has been told. Up to 300 girls are understood to be affected by the closure, which was communicated to parents in a brief email on Wednesday. Run at five satellite sites across Hertfordshire and Middlesex, the programme previously involved one session per week, 24 times a year, as well as mini tournaments. However, no sessions
