Fire Vs. Chromecast Vs. Roku: Which Is The Best Streaming TV Device?

The major differences is that Google Chromecast does not have its own remote; you’ll be using a built-in app to make changes. For the most choices and features, the Roku for $49 gives you numerous applications and along with a physical remote to assist with programming. Gamers will want to look at the Amazon Fire, which provides gaming features plus offers a separate remote gaming apparatus for an additional $30. Along with the positives, there are some drawbacks, according to Digital Trends. Though the Fire and Roku are dual-band (it can share wireless better because it can use more than one channel) the only connection method is wireless, which can be slower due to congestion and usage.

Right now, the devices simply stream the movies and television shows. – The Inquisitr

This Could Be Our First Look at Mozilla’s Chromecast Competitor

Gigaom’s Janko Roettgers got an exclusive […] with the Firefox OS-powered streaming device, and it seems like Mozilla’s competitor offers many of the same capabilities as Chromecast and Roku. But unlike Chromecast, which restricts certain types of content and is only open to Android, iOS, and web app developers, Mozilla’s system would assumedly be completely open to developers’ whims. That means Mozilla’s device could offer casting capabilities to Windows Phones and Amazon Fire Phones. And it could offer hardware and software integration that’s only limited by a hobbyist’s imagination. – Robert Sorokanich, Gizmodo http://gizmo.do/WJS5SJk
