    In addition to this, I highly suggest getting Roku with a VPN. VPN would change your ip and allow accessing unavailable content/restricted streaming services. Nordvpn would really work here well as it is not that expensive. So buying a sub with Roku + nordvpn would not be expensive yet you would have access to tons of content. Nord works well with other streaming services as well. I've tried a lot of them, and only few have trouble with nord. Most likely ExpressVPN would work great as well as it has similar reviews everywhere but I have not tried it myself.
