1) Chromecast:

First up we have the oldest streaming device in the market yes, the Chromecast. It comes with first and third-generation Chromecast. Apart from the performance and design, there isn’t any significant difference between the two generations.

One of the big reasons people like these is because they have features built-in kind of like a smartphone that makes watching a movie or show or even looking at pictures from your computer or phone really easy. You can get things like Netflix, Hulu, YouTube, or your digital photo gallery right on your TV screen without having to press a whole lot of buttons.

2) Amazon FireStick:

The 4k variant is the one you should get. The two major difference between the new and old and new device is the performance. The new version supports 4k HDR and Dolby Atmos, the remote that has much-needed volume buttons. Since it has a remote it’s good for the family. If you want to expand its capabilities then just perform firestick jailbreak.

3) MI Box S:

This is the crowd’sfavorite device. Even though It’s less portable than firestick as it’s not only big in size but also need extra power and HDMI cables, it equally matches the firestick in term of performance. It comes with an android TV interface and not an android mobile interface.

There is a persistent notification bar at the bottom and if you go to recent apps its needs some optimizations. You can play some high-end games in MI box-like Asphalt and Mortal Kombat or even use emulators to play old classic games like Mario.

4) Apple TV:

Just like all the other Apple products the prices are higher but are they worth? The usability multiplies when you use it within the Apple ecosystem like you can control it with your iPhone or Apple watch or even mirror Mac or iPhone screen to your Apple TV. Even if you remove the ecosystem part it’s still a great piece of hardware. It’s smoother and more seamless than any other streaming device.

The biggest reason to consider Apple TV apart from the ecosystem is gaming. You can play some really high-end games on this one and you can even use a Ps4 and Xbox controller with your Apple TV games so the future of Apple TV games Is looking bright.

Now, some of you may be thinking that I already have smart features built into my TV right from the manufacturer, then why would I want one of these?

Well, these will give you access to even more applications than what’s built into your TV. They are less glitchy than the features built into your TV and they have a faster and easier navigation operating system. So, if you’re someone looking to shift from a non-smart TV to smart TV then these streaming media devices might be something you want to add. This will be good for you. So, try it as per your convenience.
