If you’re new to the streaming game and want the best your money can buy, go no further than the Roku Ultra. Roku has been leading the way for streaming devices for years, and their latest model is cleaner and easier-to-use than ever.
Apple has many great products (ever heard of the iPhone?) but their flagship streaming product Apple TV features the same clean, simple, Apple experience you’ve come to love in their computer and mobile lives.
Apple TV can be used to watch all of your favorite shows, apps, live TV, new release movies, and even a free trial for original content on Apple +
Amazon comes in third on our list, but it still makes the Big 3 when it comes to major streamers. The Fire Cube is Amazon’s premiere streaming device and a wonderful investment for anyone who spends most of their viewing hours on Prime.
If you REALLY want to stream heavy-duty 4K video without any glitching, the Roku Ultra 2020 is the premiere streamer on the market. You won’t find a more powerful, user-friendly device at the same price point. Roku is the industry leader for a reason. You won’t regret this purchase!
Roku Premiere is Roku’s mid-tier offering, falling between the stick and the Ultra. Built to stream, stream, and stream some more, this binge-able, all-around streaming device is ideal for the nightly viewer with a mid-range TV.
If you haven’t hopped on the Roku train yet, now is your chance!
Give TiVo some credit. Over 20 years ago, this company revolutionized live-TV watching by enabling you to pause programming and control the broadcast. While TiVo has fallen since their heyday in the 2000s, they still offer a terrific streamer at a decent price point.
Smaller than the Fire Cube, Amazon’s Fire Stick is their OG streamer. Simply plug into your HDMI port and use the remote control to access thousands of hours of streaming content. If you’re an Amazon Prime fan but don’t want to drop the big bucks on the Cube, the Stick is your best bet.
Want to upgrade to a streaming device but also need a new TV? Consider arming your home theater with a device that gives you both. Kill two birds with one stone with Insignia’s Smart TV, where you can easily navigate between streaming services through the home screen on your TV.
You can also plug-in video game consoles, DVD players, or even a cable box.
39-inch too big? Shrink down a size with Toshiba’s 32-inch Smart TV. Navigate through Netflix, Hulu, Amazon, and more with a TV that includes a built-in interface.
Roku’s streaming stick is an ideal start streamer for households with multiple televisions. Perfect for smaller TVs, extra bedrooms, or for the kids, this streaming stick features the same Roku interface as the Ultra but delivered in a more compact package. A great holiday buy!
