Streamers are little sticks, dongles and boxes that connect to your current TV and deliver the latest and greatest TV shows, movies and videos from Netflix, YouTube, Hulu and thousands of other apps. They put most so-called smart TVs, especially ones more than a couple years old, to shame. All you need to supply is a Wi-Fi connection and maybe the monthly subscription fees.

For Black Friday 2018, streamers are cheaper than ever, starting at just $20. That’s less than three months of Netflix. And streamers from the biggest names in the business, including Roku, Chromecast and Fire TV, are on sale from more than one retailer.

Just keep in mind:

  • The deals below are current as of Thursday Nov. 22, and include WalmartAmazonBest Buy and other major retailers.
  • CNET may get a share of revenue from the sale of the products featured on this page.
