Using devices such as Amazon Fire TV, Apple TV, or Roku, along with subscription or pay-per-view services such as Amazon, Hulu, and Netflix, you can watch new and old movies, and past and current TV shows. The best streaming devices even allow you access to photo apps and social media sites on your TV. If you don’t already have a smart TV or Blu-ray player, a dedicated streaming media device is a simple way to make any TV a smart one. And even if your TV is internet-capable, a dedicated streaming device may be more convenient to use or offer some services you can’t get from the television. Here are our favorite streaming devices, and why we think you’ll appreciate them too.
