In this ever-changing new digital world, it is almost a necessity to have a way to stream content to your TV. The DVD is quickly going the way of the VHS tape with endless online and on demand movie streaming options. These days, you can watch just about any movie you want, whenever you want (except Star Wars, sigh). Even better, the monthly cost of a subscription to a digital television/movie service like Netflix is about half of what a DVD goes for these days.
Once you have the right apps and subscriptions in place, you’ll likely want to be able to watch your movies and TV shows on a screen larger than a phone or tablet provides. Of course, you can splurge on a smart TV if you have that kind of cash, but if not, there are some awesome and more affordable devices available that make accessing your digital content on your TV easily and seamlessly.
Lately, I have been on the hunt for the best steaming device available. Here are the 8 best streaming devices I have been able to find so far. Keep in mind that this is a very active space and there will likely be even better gadgets popping up down the road. I will add them to this post as I see them, so be sure to check back occasionally.
