Apple TV: Everything You Need to Know

There are a lot of streaming services (Hulu, Netflix, Sling TV) nowadays and if you want to use them, you need a streaming device. Apple TV is a streaming device that you can use to watch movies, listen to music, play games, and view photos.

The most current (4th generation) version of Apple TV features a dual-core A8 processor, a new touch remote, allowing swipe-to-select functionality and Siri voice support, and a new operating system… tvOS.

There are 2 versions, the 32 GB priced at $149 and the 64GB at $199. Keep in mind that, since Apple TV streams content from a cloud without necessarily storing it, the difference between the two devices is buffering, not storage space.

Access all your streaming apps from one central device for a unified viewing experience. Not only that, but stream from your iPhone or iPad to your Apple TV.

Fire TV: Everything You Need to Know

The original Amazon Fire TV box was introduced in 2014. Since then an upgraded 2nd generation Fire TV has been released with improved wireless connectivity, sharper images, and better reception quality. In addition to an improved box, Amazon released 2 generations of the smaller (1.1 oz), more convenient, Fire TV Stick.

Although it’s smaller, there is no sacrifice in quality. The Gen 2 Fire TV sticks now include enhanced wireless connectivity, a faster processing chipset, Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity, advanced graphics cards, and improved voice search support powered by Alexa. Internal memory is still set at 1GB with 8GB. It remains unlikely that Amazon will increase the available storage, especially given Amazon’s increasing emphasis on cloud storage.

All you need is a basic Amazon account to start streaming the best videos, channels, games and apps. You can use any of the available online video streaming apps on the Amazon Store to watch Fire TV channels.
