December 2012 - April 2020


In recent years, the streaming media player market has expanded exponentially to include price points for every budget. On top of nearly every major player being involved in this space, various TV manufacturers are now building in streaming functionality to their products. Apple, Roku, Xioami, and Amazon remain to be the most popular names amongst the set-top streaming box category.

Apple TV is one of the most popular streamers out there, but sadly, discounts rarely come around. At the holiday season and maybe one other time throughout the year, we’ll see $20 off with some added bonuses. Don’t expect to see anything beyond that.

Roku has the most expansive streaming media player lineup on the market today, with value propositions from under $30 and high-end models topping $100. Roku shines with a mix of notable features like 4K and HDR support married with access to all of the most popular streaming services out there.

Meanwhile, Amazon has an impressive line of streaming media players as well. From the entry-level Fire TV Stick to higher-end cord-cutting solutions that feature DVR functionality and more.
