The long Jubilee weekend is upon us – and it brings with it major discounts on most of the leading streaming devices, including the Fire TV Cube and the Roku Streambar, which usually carry a hefty price tag.
As with any discount, the first question to ask yourself is whether you actually need a new streaming device. If you have a somewhat recent Smart TV, it may be enough as it probably has most of the major streaming and catch-up apps.
But standalone streaming sticks bring with them a longer list of supported apps and streaming services, and they’re usually faster and easier to use than Smart TVs or older streaming sticks.
Amazon Fire TV Jubilee Deals
I’m still a big fan of Amazon’s Fire TV streaming devices – I’ve been using the Fire TV Cube as my main device this year, but the Fire TV Stick 4K Max, which was released late last year, is just as good in terms of how fast and responsive it is.
All the Fire TV devices are currently on sale – though some of the discounts are better than others.
The Fire TV Stick 4K Max is a fast and powerful device, with Ultra HD (4K) and HDR support, a voice remote with Alexa built-in, and a huge library of supported streaming services and apps (See my full Fire TV Stick 4K Max review).

The Amazon Fire TV Cube
The Fire TV Cube (see my review) combines a 4K Fire TV streaming device with an Alexa Echo speaker, so you can use Amazon’s assistant to control your TV, your streaming, AND talk to it and ask it questions, just like with other Echo devices.
It costs more than the sticks, but the current Jubilee pricing makes it more tempting – £69.99 (Instead of
Roku Streaming Devices Offers
If you’re still waiting to jump on board the Roku wagon, all three of the streaming devices – and the Streambar which adds a soundbar – have gotten big discounts for the Jubilee weekend. (Not sure which one to get? See our Roku comparison).

- Roku Express 4K (4K Entry Level) – Check Price
- Roku Streaming Stick 4K (Premium) – Check Price
The Roku Streambar (see my review) combines two devices in one – a powerful streaming device and a compact soundbar that will, in most cases, sound miles better than your TV’s built-in speakers.
Its Jubilee cost is £99.99, instead of the usual
