      Just curious what everyone here at the forum uses to watch streaming TV? I noticed this past weekend that my family uses 8 devices now, which include:

      55" HDTV
      Apple iPhone
      Samsung Galaxy S3
      iPad
      Roku
      Xbox 360
      Blu-Ray DVD Player

      iPod

      It's hard to believe that just a year ago, we weren't watching anything online or streaming, and now...we usually have one or two streams going at any given time.

      I install many A/V systems for my clients in the gulf coast central area of Florida (for almost a decade now). I am not entirely sure if it is strictly related to the demographic that I typically service or possibly the socio-econmic specific choice of a wealthier area but most of my clients are sold on the Apple TV option. I am not inferring that this device is expensive my any means, however, it may be the case that as Apple products are usually on the higher-end cost compared to related devices that people with more money to spend tend to lean in the direction of this brand.

      I have experienced very few issues with the Apple Tv and ease of use seems to be simple enough that I rarely take calls or need to return to my clients' home for additional instruction or troubleshooting.

      CptlA,
      Switch out the Xbox 360 with a PS3, and you pretty much have our list of streaming devices.

      JD2013, do you work for Apple? If so, it might be a good idea to state that up front whenever the content involves an Apple product. One way would be to create a user name such as "AppleInstaller" or whatever.

      Appreciate your contribution.

      If you're talking streaming to the actual TV, then I use my Sony Bravia's built-in apps (mostly youtube), but I stream Hulu to my pc and occasionally Netflix to my Nexus 7 when I'm traveling. I would stream Hulu to my TV, but you have to have Hulu Plus for that so I don't.

      At one point, I was using my Xbox 360 for streaming videos, but over the last year or so I tend to use my tablet or smartphone.

      2 Roku boxes, 1 tablet, 1 desktop, a laptop, and 1 Blu Ray.

      The 2 Roku players are used way more than anything.

      What are your thoughts about the Roku box? I'm considering it for sometime in the future.

      We normally use either my computer, the 55"HDTV with the play station 3 connected to it. I actually like it. Considering about 95% of the time my husband is on the play station 3 and I am on my computer.

      It is better to get a Roku than a Apple TV because you could watch more popular services with it. Apple TV will not have Amazon Instant Video service or Crackle service, which you could use to watch free videos.
