Is there an affordable alternative to Apple TV that has apples Netflix format

I like how Apple TV let’s you search Netflix by genre and subgenre. My Roku doesn’t allow that.
But Apple TV is 3x more expensive than Roku. Is there a cheaper alternative to search Netflix by genre that is closer to Roku in price?

I always search by genre on the Netflix web site, see what’s good… then search for it on-screen.

Much faster than any navigation with a remote control.

And/or I’ll google “Best [comedies] netflix August, 2018” and see what sounds good. I’ve taken to figuring out what to watch on TV (broadcast/Netfix/Hulu/A’Prime) with my laptop open.
