Looking for a streaming upgrade? Maybe you've got an old Roku device that's a little slow or missing some desirable features. Maybe you're not happy with the app selection that's built into your smart TV. Whatever the case, I've got a pretty spectacular streaming deal for you.
For a limited time, and while supplies last, Walmart's early Black Friday sale includes the Roku Ultra LT for just $30. That's more than 50% off the regular price and the best premium-Roku deal I've seen. To put that in perspective, the entry-level Roku Express sells for $29. One extra buck buys you a lot more streamer.
The Ultra LT supports HD and 4K video with HDR, which is a lot of tech-speak for "it delivers super-sharp, super-vibrant images." It does all this using a quad-core processor, meaning menu navigation and streaming start-up should feel very snappy.

NICOSIA, Cyprus (AP) — Pope Francis on Thursday urged Greek Cypriots and the breakaway Turkish Cypriots to resume talks on reunifying the Mediterranean island nation, saying threats and shows of force were only prolonging the “terrible laceration” its people have endured for nearly a half-century. A weary-looking Francis made the appeal as he arrived in the ethnically divided Cypriot capital at the start of a five-day visit that will also take him to Greece, a similarly Orthodox majority country

When Queen Elizabeth marked 60 years on the throne in 2012, Canada minted 60,000 Diamond Jubilee Medals awarded to people from all walks all of life for their exceptional service. Now, as another jubilee approaches, there are calls to bestow the country's pandemic front-line workers with the royal recognition. But as David Akin explains, Ottawa has no plans for more medals.

"Who are the members of the class?" he asked. "Who gets left behind? "There are still lots of thi
RESERVE, La. (AP) — Michael Coleman’s house is the last one standing on his tiny street, squeezed between a sprawling oil refinery that keeps him up at night and a massive grain elevator that covers his pickup with dust and worsens his breathing problems. Coleman, 65, points to the smokestacks billowing just outside his backyard. “Oh, when the plants came in, they built right on top of us," he said. “We was surrounded by sugarcane, and now we’re surrounded by (industrial) plants.” The oil compan
