4k roku streaming box on a non 4k tv

I have a bunch of roku tvs at my house already except for one tv. So I already have experience with roku tvs. The one TV I have isn't a 4k smart TV, but it is a 55 inch Sanyo TV. 

 

My question is if I bought the 4k roku streaming box and use it on my non 4k 55 in sanyo tv, would it still show in 4k or no? 

I just want to know if its worth my money or not to buy the 4k roku streaming device or just the HD one.

It will work fine and will limit itself to the maximum of that TV. If you replace the TV with a 4K one, the Roku will then work with 4K.

And the hi-def aquarium screen saver that comes with the 4K units is worth the buying a 4K capable unit all by itself. (Don't worry, it will still display on non-4K sets and looks great.)
