Passing along… Hey Black Friday shoppers, the month-old Roku HD-XR Player (mentioned here in October) is half off to the first 500 customers beginning at 8 a.m. California time on Black Friday. That makes it $64.99 and Roku is tossing in free shipping.
The Roku boxes plug into a TV and allows users to stream movies from Netflix, Amazon Video and other online sources. There are three available, this one stream high-definition video and has an HDMI port. These are devices that give consumers more options on their big-screen TV without having to pay a monthly cable bill.
Since I know some readers were interested in this device, I just wanted to share this deal that was e-mailed to me by the company. If you’re interested, here are the steps to getting the 50 percent discount:
1. Go to blackfriday.roku.com starting at 8 a.m. Pacific Standard Time Friday.
2. Follow the instructions and enter the code “hdxrsteal” at checkout. The code can be applied to one Roku HD-XR Player.
