Gone are the days when you had to rush home to not miss your favorite show or wait for the weekend to watch the repeat telecast. With technology capturing every dimension of our life, live streaming has taken over the entertainment industry. There are many ways to watch online content but the comfort of watching your favorite show at any hours on your TV is unparalleled. With many streaming devices available in the market, 3 of them have captured the major share of the couch potatoes.
Amazon has entered the cinematic industry by launching two variants of the Amazon Fire Tv Stick. After the booming success of Fire Stick, it launched Amazon Fire TV Stick 4k with Alexa Voice Remote. The thumb-sized drive is 4k HDR capable and 80% more powerful than it’s the previous version. The fire stick has a fantastic voice search interface, so you can ask Alexa to perform any operation available on the remote. The device allows you seamless streaming in brilliant picture quality and color contrasts.
You can browse all your favorite shows, movies, news, and other online data on your television just by your remote. Both the Fire TV Sticks are super speedy with smooth browsing and download quality.
Apple TV 4K can be considered as a competitor to the Amazon Fire TV stick. Considering the reviews from experts, Apple TV does provide better picture quality and smooth interface as compared to Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K but the triple-fold price doesn’t make it the user’s first choice. The Apple TV 4K is priced at Rs. 15,900 for the 32GB version and Rs. 17,900 for the 64GB version. With the Apple TV 4K, you can browse 4K and HDR content from various providers like Netflix, iTunes movies, Amazon Prime Video. Apple TV provides an exclusive app for Youtube browsing.
3. Google Chromecast (3rd Generation)
The Google Chromecast is nowhere similar to the Apple TV and Amazon Fire TV stick. It comes with a device that can be connected to your television. You can download the Google Home app from the Play Store or App Store, and follow the on-screen instructions. It is dependent on other devices which makes it a non-portable device. Just like Amazon Fire Stick and Apple, Chromecast can also be operated through voice control. You can browse almost every online channel through the device. It can be easily connected to your phone, laptop or TV.
With a price of Rs. 3499/- the Chromecast is a good choice but not better than the Amazon Fire Tv stick which comes in the same price segment.
With technology making our life easier and better, the entertainment is not just on your fingertips but can be controlled with your voice instructions.
