December 2012 - January 2019


Even though most HDTVs and 4K UHDTVs currently available have built-in wireless access and smart apps, streaming media players are still incredibly popular since they typically offer a better overall experience. Media streamers provide access to TV shows, movies, music, and other content from internet services like Netflix, Hulu, iTunes, Amazon, and others. Many of these players also let you share your own media directly from your smartphone or tablet. The best streaming media players have an intuitive user interface, maintain a reliable Wi-FI connection, and include robust search functionality.
