In the vast world of devices that can stream movies and shows to your TV, Roku is unique in that it does not belong to any large technology company. Google has Chromecast, Apple has Apple TV and Amazon has Fire TV. Roku, however, supports any platform without annoying corporate wars.
This makes the Roku an attractive option for anyone who wants to buy a streaming device. You can watch YouTube, Amazon Prime Video and soon Apple TV + on a single device. But which single device? The company offers several competing models with minor variations, many of which look almost identical. How to choose.
