Roku Ultra is on sale for $80. I have one and it's solid.

and DC Universe is on it.
It's $72.18 on Amazon. Still not as good as $50 on BF.

Yeah.... $50 on BF was a hell of deal. I picked up a few.

You can't go wrong with an Ultra.

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

Added a Roku Ultra yesterday based on recommendations here. 360 will likely go back to gaming exclusively; and my phone will now become a back up streaming device when the Roku is being used.

Had two Rokus for my two TVs when I first posted, and ended up with two more a week or so later. Ordered a Roku Ultra on Black Friday to upgrade, and was going to take my Roku stick to work. But then found a deal on a Roku TV I couldn’t resist. So two TVs, 4 Rokus, sounds like my norm. Sigh......

Re: How many streaming devices do you own and what are they?

I have:
Android Smartphone
iPad
PS4
Roku Stick
Roku SE
2 Samsung Blu-ray Players

I prefer Rokus and I wish I had a Roku in my bedroom, but my cable box and PS4 take up my electrical outlet and HDMI space. My TV only has two HDMI ports.

3 smart TVs
2 Kindle Fires
Android smart phone
Xbox One X
Xbox 360
Blu ray player
2 Roku Stick+
Apple TV (3rd gen, not really being used anymore)
I like the Roku interface, but the upstairs smart tv apps are fine for that, and I randomly use one or the other on my tv.

Re: How many streaming devices do you own and what are they?

So almost 2 months later.

I now own a Roku Ultra, which I bought at Best Buy during Black Friday. I've retired the Roku 3 and put it in the closet.

Now that I have the Roku Ultra, I've been using it the most lately. Forgot to mention that I also have an old Ipad Air 2, which I use to stream when I'm away from home.

Again I never use the game consoles to stream. I just don't find them very efficient. Maybe if I was a bigger gamer, then maybe I would use it more.

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?

Re: How many streaming devices do you own and what are they?

HBO Now has joined MLB.tv in not supporting the PS3. My X1 has spotty WiFi connectivity so I guess I’m going to have to break out the media remote for my PS4.
