Amazon Prime Day is slated for June 21 and 22 this year, but prices site-wide — on everything from orthopedic dog beds to Samsung smartwatches — are already dropping. Amazon expects a big payday from this year’s digital sales event and the days around it. In October 2020, the company raked in an estimated $10.4 billion during the Prime Day festivities.

If you’re shopping for a streaming device, such as a Fire TV stick or a Roku system, you’re in luck: Those prices have dropped too, even before Prime Day.

For the uninitiated, streaming devices are a popular way to organize media and streaming subscriptions such as Netflix and Hulu, along with free, ad-supported services such as Pluto TV. It’s a good way to watch content on an older, non-smart TV without paying for an extra cable box or satellite TV receiver. Some cable companies even offer apps that allow customers to stream live TV from their chosen devices without switching to a separate input. (Note: CBS Essentials and Pluto TV are both subsidiaries of ViacomCBS.)

Here are some of the pre-Prime Day deals on Roku and Fire TV devices.
