Re: What devices do you use to stream?

I had a Chromecast, but I like the Fire TV better. My only complaint is the Fire TV doesn't have an app for the UFC online service.

Re: What devices do you use to stream?

WD Tv Media player (3rd gen.), a older Panny plasma tv. Which has very very few apps. I use Netflix & Amazon when I had prime.

In the near future I am thinking about picking up a Nvidia Shield.

(2) Roku's

Love 'em.....used to stream with my Sony Blu-Ray players but they were god awful slow. The Roku's are so much faster.

And...I have to have VUDU..which Roku does. Up to 350 movies on VUDU now...love it. VUDU/Netflix and Amazon Prime are all I need for now.

We have most of those on the list but only use Roku, have one at every TV and they are by far the best imo.

Re: What devices do you use to stream?

I have a Roku and PS3 in the living room. In my bedroom, I have an Amazon Fire stick and I recently received an Apple TV as a gift. I used my iPad to stream stuff sometimes, when I'm working on my computer or traveling.

Re: What devices do you use to stream?

At last count, I had FIVE installed Roku devices:

Roku 3 (attached to the 55") in the Living Room
55" TCL RokuTV in the ManCave
32" TCL RokuTV in the Master Bedroom
Roku 2 in the Exercise Room (for when I'm stuck on the treadmill)
Roku2 XS in the Guest Bedroom

And I have a Roku-1 in a travel kit that I take with me on overnight business/football trips. I also have a new Amazon Fire Stick with Kodi/XBMC loaded that'll be in the same travel kit but which is temporarily in the Master Bedroom as well.

I've also got a box with several older but fully functional Rokus (I think I've got three legacy HD-XR units in there)

I've got the 40" TCL RokuTV, and I love it. It's the perfect TV for a bedroom. It's inexpensive, has a great picture, and built-in Roku.

My BD player for the big four: Vudu, AIV, Hulu, and Netflix. Since HBO Go, Showtime Anywhere, Crunchyroll, and some others remain steadfast in their refusal to be convenient, I use Chromecast for those. Chromecast is a colossal pain, but it was the cheapest option given that my player works for everything else, plus it's portable and I can take it to my low-rent HDTV in the basement. Would've preferred to have an actual remote (the interface sucks), but for the price, I guess it's hard to complain about Chromecast, and it was less expensive than anything else. Though an Amazon iPhone workaround for it would be nice.

Ordered a Nvidia Shield from Amazon last night. Not sure if I will keep it yet. But the price was to good to pass up. Nvidia Shield, Controller, & Remote for $125.
