Save $20 on Roku 2 XS 1080p Media Streaming Device

I don’t remember the exact statistic at the moment, but I remember hearing how an increasing number of people are abandoning their traditional cable TV subscriptions and opting for online streaming and on-demand services instead. If you want easy access to Netflix, Amazon Instant Video, and other similar entertainment on your HDTV, the Roku 2 XS is a great option. And it’s on sale too.

The Roku 2 XS 1080p Streaming Player gives you full support of streaming video up to–you guessed it–1080p full HD. You get access to over 600 channels with movies, TV shows, sports, music and more from sources like Hulu Plus, HBO GO and VUDU. Since it’s so universal, it should work on just about any television. There’s an accompanying app for Android and iOS too.

For the Internet connectivity, you’ll probably get the best experience with the provided wired support, but the Roku 2 XS also comes with built-in 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi for wireless connections too. Beyond videos, it even has a “game-ready remote” to handy a full version of Angry Birds. And it’s remarkably tiny to boot.

The regular price is $99.99, but the Roku 2 XS is currently on sale for $79.00 with free super saver shipping. If you activate before January 7, you also get a bonus $5 Amazon Instant Video promo credit.
