Slightly different than many other streaming devices, almost all of the content is “cast” from an outside device with support. With numerous apps on Android and Apple mobile phones supporting it, ranging from Netflix to live television channels, it has quickly become one of the most powerful yet simplistic streaming devices available.

It’s easy to use. Just plug it into your TV’s HDMI port and connect to your home internet. Once you’re set up, the device then becomes a portal to stream apps from your device to your television. You can use your mobile device as a remote control.
