2018 Edition: How many streaming services/devices do you have?

Not counting game consoles, which I never use for streaming. But for the record, I do have a XBox One S and PS4.

I own an Apple TV 4K

Nvidia Shield

Roku 3


I got the Apple TV 4K for free when I sampled DirecTV Now for 3 months and I love this device. Probably the best interface and great 4K streams.

I find that I'm using it the most these days.


What about the rest of you?

3 Roku Ultra’s and a Roku TV (TCL 55”). Been thinking about getting an Apple TV or even a Fire Cube, but I honestly don’t see what they have that the Roku doesn’t already offer. I haven’t really invested enough in the Apple environment (music and movies) to justify getting one, but I have been curious about it.

I have an Apple TV, Roku 4 Ultra and Fire TV sticks.

Prefer the Roku overall.

Also, my Samsung 4K UHD TV is also a Smart TV and is capable of streaming many popular apps and in 4K.

I do use it occasionally to stream.

I am tempted to upgrade my Roku 3 to the new Roku Ultra since it's only $50 for Black Friday and streams in 4K.

I love tech, but sometimes no matter how cheap it is, you likely will run into a lot of redundancy since many of these devices do the exact same thing.


But, certain apps actually play better on different devices. The new DC Universe streaming service plays much better on the Nvidia Shield than Roku and Apple TV.

Amazon Fire Stick
Apple 4K TV
Roku 3
Roku Stick
smart TV
six tablets between us
several smart phones
several game systems

Use them all, but probably stream on the upstairs Roku and iPads the most.

Have a 3 year old 1080p Samsung Smart TV. But it's slow as hell as far as the smart tv interface. I tried to order a TCL 65" 4K for $399.99 But not in stock at my local stores & they don't ship to my area.

Both of WD-TV Live media players serve me well but don't play H265 files.

1. WD-TV Live Gen 1
2. WD-TV Live Gen 2
3. 2018 Roku Ultra - ordered from BB last night.

Using a Roku Express + and just bought a Roku Ultra for $50 off at roku.com so I didn't have to fight folks at Walmart or Target.

I usually stream on my PS3 though I also use my X1 and, to a lesser extent, my PS4. My ipad and laptop get occasional use as well.

Roku Ultra (4K)
LG TV (with built-in apps/ability to add apps)
Kindle Fire (which has been unhooked and unused for about a year now - as it offers nothing I can't get on my Roku)
My Blu-ray and 4K players (as well as my Samsung receiver) have built-in apps, but I never use them (again, because they offer nothing I can't get on my TV/Roku)

My TV is my primary source - as Netflix, Vudu, Amazon Prime, and Hulu are all on it (and I don't have to switch inputs to pull them up)
I use my Roku primarily (right now at least) for DC Universe and CBS All Access.

XBOX 360
Samsung Galaxy 9+

Looking at a Roku now since HBO GO has a message saying it won't be on XBOX 360 after Jan 2019. Just the latest app to stop support on the 360 CW, PBS, and few other are all gone. Also i'm pretty sure DC Universe won't be on the 360
