Okay, with that out of the way let’s get to our list. Starting off our list at number four is the Roku Express screaming stick. Just like the other Roku’s this little stick has access to more than 3,500 channels and apps. It streams in 1080p HD and also comes with an easy to use remote unlike the Chromecast.
One major downside to this device is the noticeably slower speed as compared with the premium Roku streaming stick at 30 dollars. It is a good price but you should probably save an additional five to 20 dollars to get one of the better streaming devices on this list.
In it number three is the google chromecast. The chromecast doesn’t operate the same as the other sticks on this list. For one it doesn’t come with a remote and there’s not a dedicated user interface on your TV screen. What it does do and does very well, it lets you cast the content from your phone or tablet directly onto your TV by using Google home app which is available on Android and iOS.
You can also cast from a specific app like Netflix that supports chromecast. My personal preference is to have an actual remote instead of using my phone into remote but for just $35 it does a very good job of casting video from your mobile device to your TV.
The Amazon fire TV stick comes in at number two on our list what is great about the fire TV stick is that it now comes with a voice-controlled remote. All you have to do is hold down a button on the remote to use Alexa to search for apps programs and games. Fire TV has just about every big streaming service including Netflix Hulu and of course Amazon Prime well this is an Amazon product after all!
The speed at which you can fly through the user interface is the fastest on this list. The only thing keeping the fire TV stick out of the top spot is that it tends to over prioritize Amazon services over others but for just $40 it’s a great streaming stick.
In at the top spot just barely beating out theMS on fire TV stick is the Roku streaming stick with more than 3,500 channels. Roku has more than all of its competitors unlike Apple or Amazon. Roku doesn’t prioritize any of its services over any others.
In fact I don’t think Roku owns any streaming services. The Roku comes with a quad-core processor so you’ll be zipping through its user interface at lightning speed. The only downside to the stick is it doesn’t have a remote voice search option like the fire TV but does offer voice search in its Android and iOS app. Retailing for $50 the Roku streaming stick is the absolute best streaming stick that you can get for 50 dollars or less.
