Can Roku Ultra replace my Amazon Fire Stick?

Jump to solution

I currently have an Amazon Fire Stick. I love their content but detest their interface.

If I buy a Roku Ultra, can it effectively replace the Fire Stick (I don't care about Alexa)?

Yes it work fine. The amazon won't be front and center like it is on the Fire stick, it will just be another app along with all the others, it will listed as Prime. You won't find a browser app, as there aren't any on roku streamers. As HBO Max & Peacock are missing from Fire stick officially, they are missing on Roku as well.
