    I love the amazon firestick because I can connect my bluetooth headphones to it and watch tv where no one else can hear. It's good for watching TV at night.

    Hey guys, some help here please, I'm buying either a Roku TV Stick or a Fire TV Stick this Black Friday, so I'm running out of time.

    I like the Roku TV interface, it looks simple and nice, I also like the headphone jack in the new Roku remote, but my only problem with Roku is the lack of an AirPlay app, I even tried searching in private channels with no use, it's a pretty closed system.

    On the other hand, Amazon's Fire TV is simply a branded polished version of the Android TV OS, so this opens up a world of apps.

    Please help me decide, I'm not into Amazon's ecosystem, or wish to buy any of the so-called "Home" accessories, I just want a device to watch Netflix, normal YouTube, stream movies from my NAS, mirror the screen of my Android or iPhone mobile.

    You are not a nerd. Not even close. More like a middle age dad. Real nerds use Fire TV and Android boxes. IPTV!

    What about pay per view? For example, when the big boxing match is on?

    The Chromecast is not confusing at all! It's supposed to make it all revolve around your phone.

    My Vizio "Smart tv" (I have Netflix that works fine.) does not have an option in settings for Screen Mirroring. Will getting a Chromecast allow me to screen mirror my (more han capable) Note 4 onto the tv?????

    Does your router have a cord? Does your cable modem have a cord? Does your tv have a cord? Not cord cutting, kids.

    Dude…why are you renting stuff on iTunes when the opportunity cost means it’s cheaper to buy it??

    You forgot Tennis channel in sports. Yes. People care about that too. Duh.

    Netflix+Hulu+Sling(w/ESPN) and then HBO and Starz for when shows we want are airing.

    We also have the digital antenna for local tv. I find that the digital antenna’s HD feed is actually better than cable.

    Cutting cable tv out of our life has been amazing. Been paying Comcast 130 dollars for channels we don’t even watch. Then when we cut the cord, we just pay 39.99 a month with Verizon Fios.

    Confused how this is streaming "like a Pro"… Casting to a TV is confusing? How inept do you think the audience is? Also, digital antenna does have DVR and can be conveniently re-watched on free, popular, user friendly services like Plex… Unimpressed by this one

    You forgot to mention one of the best options: get a streaming box, then find someone with a traditional cable package and share their cable login. If you don't want to mooch, you can offer to split the cost.

    Awesome video, guys!! Keep up the awesome work. For me personally, I watch YouTube, Netflix, and HBO Now. I also have Amazon
    Prime but I rarely ever use that. I’m also tempted to sign up for Hulu- I did the trial and loved it but don’t have the time and money for all of them.
