    "My wife is an Apple person, I am not. She wons this round. Apple TV out of all of the streaming content has the best overall selection of movies and sports. The price is fair and the quality of the programming is high. This allowed me to consolidate the amount of streaming services that I subscribe to."

    "The Roku Ulra offers more movies and television shows in HDR and 4k than most of the other devices out there. If you own a 4k television than the Roku is a great streaming choice. I like that it has an Ethernet port for wired connections as there are times my WiFi is intermittent. "

    "This is very similar to the Fire stick in my opinion. It lets you watch tons of movies and TV shows (paid and unpaid). One feature I really like is the Andoid app so I can use my phone for voice search and watching privately with headphones. "

    "Google Chromecast is a streaming stick from Google that is available from Walmart and many other places for 35 dollars. It gives you most of the normal streaming apps and works very well with streaming content from your android device to the Chromecast. Personally I like the Amazon Firestick but the Chromecast has some things that makes it look real good too. It had the NHL.TV available before Firestick did so that was a real plus for me. It fits the topic extremely well."

    "I had been a Roku user for some years, but gave the Amazon Fire Stick a try for a while - I found it clunky and went back to the Roku. There aren't really any content limitations on the Roku - you can still stream Amazon Prime Video even without the Amazon hardware. Plus, they've been working on their integration with other content providers for years, so Roku has a leg up in that regard. The only thing that I wish they would sort out would be better integration with web browsers and operating systems for casting, and improving the clunky remote."
