I think it would be easier to find Lysol right now than a Roku. I have tried everywhere to buy a Roku for my upstairs bedroom after our old Roku bit the dust.

I originally ordered from Amazon, was delayed 2 weeks.

So I cancelled and went to Walmart for in-store pick up. That was supposed to pick up the same day I ordered, was then delayed 2 days, then I was told they actually didn't have it and cancelled my order all together.

The closest Best Buy to me that has one is 4 hours away. All the Targets are sold out too.

So BACK to Amazon I go. They say it will be delivered tomorrow. I'll believe it when I see it.

I love my Roku. I have cable in the living room but not in my bedroom. The one in my living room bit the dust too. I have a smart tv in the living room but it's a few years old and I can't watch Disney + on that tv. I've toyed with buying a new one, but right now I just use the roku in my bedroom if I want to watch Disney +.

I had the same problem with getting a Firestick. Walmart, Target, and Best Buy were out. Amazon was a month wait. Target online said it would be delivered in four days. That turned into 2 weeks. This was back in May.

I ordered from one straight from Roku at the beginning of April. It got here a few days later. I was skeptical of their shipping time, but it was really not much slower than Amazon.

Remember that Bath and Body Works big sale someone posted about, oh, close to a month ago?
I ordered a bunch of hand soaps and mini hand sanitizers, plus a key chain hand sanitizer holder.
Well, I got the key chain the following week. Still waiting on the rest!! If it doesn't come by next week, I will call. Tried looking up the tracking number but no info. Looks like it's still sitting in the package facility.

I hope you get it! We updated our Roku at Christmas so we could get Disney+ (our first Roku was many years old by then). Love our Roku!
