Roku Premiere (2018)

 

At just $40, the Roku Premiere is the most affordable 4K-capable media streamer out there, if you don't mind dealing with a line-of-sight infrared remote.

Inexpensive. Quick performance. Supports HDR10.

IR remote must be pointed directly at Roku box.

Bottom Line: At just $40, the Roku Premiere is the most affordable 4K-capable media streamer out there, if you don't mind dealing with a line-of-sight infrared remote.

Roku Premiere offers more 4K streaming apps for less money

 

The affordable Roku Premiere has more 4K-capable apps than just about any source, including the Smart TV system built into your TV. But it's not for everyone.

The Premiere is cheaper than most other 4K streamers and offers more 4K apps. Unlike the Chromecast Ultra, it actually includes a remote (and an Amazon Video app). Roku's ecosystem offers more apps, better search and more customization than any other.

Lack of HDR and other important features make it a worse value than the Premiere+. Content in 4K is still uncommon, and your 4K TV probably already has compatible apps. Some app interfaces are less polished than on rival devices.

Although I prefer slightly more-expensive devices with better features, the Roku Premiere is still an appealing way to add more 4K apps to TVs that lack HDR.

Roku Premiere Review: Inexpensive 4K, Cheap Design

 

The Roku Premiere may be the cheapest 4K HDR player on the market, but it won't be the only one in this price range for long. The Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K ($50) is just around the corner, as is Google's next Chromecast (price TBD). And while the Roku...

Excellent 4K HDR performance ; Offers every major streaming app ; Decent navigation

Awkward design ; Subpar remote

The Roku Premiere delivers a high-quality 4K HDR experience but cuts a few design corners along the way.

Hands on: Roku Premiere (2018) review

 

Roku's mid-level 4K HDR streamer makes a triumphant return

4K HDR Performance ; Smaller form factor ; Improved Roku OS ; Affordable price

Too similar to Streaming Stick+ ; IR Remote on Premiere ; No Dolby Vision support

The Roku Premiere and Premiere+ produce 4K HDR images at a price most people can afford – raising the bar for the competition and itself. A practical 4K smart TV solution, even if Dolby Vision is nowhere to be seen.
