So, which device appeals most to you? If you could design your ultimate media streaming device, what would it include? Please tell us all about it in the comments below! Your email address will not be published. I've had a few different media boxes and my preference is the MyMatrixTV android box for media streaming. It has the most content compared to the ones that I've used in the past.
Video streaming has never been as accessible or enjoyable as it is today. Choosing a best device is up to you. Credibility of the entire article is to be questioned when the best device, the Nvidia Shield TV, isn't even mentioned.
Nvidia Shield blows all the mentioned streamers out of the water and it's not even on the list! Kodi works fantastically with it. The only drawback in no Amazon streaming. Android TV box will do the trick too. You can use any app from Google Play store, web browser plus any media managers like Plex or Kodi. Build in SD card reader and few usb ports let you expand the memory and add peripherals. Add a controller and you've got yourself a gaming console!
Full home network file sharing, web browsing to ANY website, email, etc, and of course all the streaming sites. More expensive than the other choices, but also much more flexible.

Couldn't be happier with the final setup. That sounds pretty nifty.
I'll look into it, hopefully it's not TOO much more expensive than other choices, otherwise that would be a real dealbreaker for a lot of folks. The Chromecast 1 still needed to be plugged if I remember correctly. I gave my original to the parents and picked up the 2, but I do remember having to provide it power.
I currently use the Xbox and the Chromecast. Between the two of them, I can usually accomplish whatever I need to accomplish. I do have an Apple TV I was given at a conference and I've only plugged it up once to see what the fuss was all about. With Chromecast offering "goodies" on a regular basis, I can usually get a few months free of a new service, such as Sling TV, or an occasional free Google Play Movie rental. I use the Xbox more for binge watching since it is a device that is plugged in and I don't have to think about charging a battery like I would with the cell phone.
I use Chromecast and Netflix in Mexico. Unfortunately I'm not sure what's good outside the US. Hopefully one of our readers can enlighten you, but VPNs seem to be a commonly used solution. Don't forget that the Playstation 3 can also stream to your TV Netflix, Amazon, Hulu are all there.

There is even a native Plex app in development of you're a PlexPass subscriber. You don't NEED to be a subscriber tho to use the DLNA functionality, you just don't get the pretty interface and need to browse through the folder structure, but it's totally usable. That's right, PS3 can stream media. I should've mentioned it but figured most PS3 owners would already know and people would rather buy the more recent PS4 if they needed something.
Thanks for bringing that up, Thomas. I started stream a few years ago with a WDTV that was excellent for playing local content from shared folders, and then the added Netflix - but then they dropped Netflix.

I don't use them anymore other than the one that had netflix without updating it ever now. Tried AppleTV but it just cannot really stream local content unless it is under iTunes and in their very limited formats - have none of that so it is really only good for online rentals and Netflix.
Never us it now. I finally spend a few weeks reordering and renaming all my local media to run Plex - It is not as easy as they claim and you have to add content in blocks with frequent metadata rematching. But the Roku3 with Plex is awesome. Best thing I ever tired. I've heard many good things about Plex. Maybe it's about time I gave it a shot too. Thanks for sharing, ATEngineer. I guess the main reason to get a fire tv is to install Kodi.
All the other media streamers are excellent but difficult to none existent to get Kodi installed. Check out FileBot to help with any future renaming projects. You can do mass renaming and should make the job earlier. Also check out MediaElch for getting Metadata and media art in order. Both are free. MakeUseOf OneDrive vs.
