Amazon Prime Day officially starts at midnight on Tuesday morning, but streaming devices from leading manufacturer Roku are already available at steeply discounted prices on Amazon.

Roku is touting an $8 discount for its entry-level Express. It’s currently available at that price online at Best Buy. But Amazon already has the device listed at $21 (a $9 discount off the regular MSRP).

The 4K/HDR-capable Roku Premiere, meanwhile, is listed on Amazon giant at $27—$13 less than its regular price. 

And the Roku Express streaming stick, regularly $49.99, is going for $37 on Amazon. 

If past precedent is any indicator, Amazon will likely offer discounts on its own Fire TV streaming devices when its 24-hour sales event officially commences. 

Look for discounts on other OTT devices, as well.
