Streaming Stick + or Ultra

Wanting to buy a Roku, have WiFi but the router is in another room than my tv. Will the streaming stick + work or should I go for the ultra? I do not have a 4K tv

Re: Streaming Stick + or Ultra

If it's mandatory that you use WiFi, Roku claims the Stick+ has the best wireless reception. The power cord is actually the the WiFi antenna, so it should work better than the Ultra. But if it's ever possible that you could use a wired connection, then the Ultra is the only model available with an Ethernet connection. But both support 802.11ac for the fastest possible wireless connection.
