When you perused through Sceptre’s LED and 4K display selection, you may have noticed a feature description that refers to Roku. In brief, it mentions how Roku allows you to stream movies and TV shows, which sounds great, but you are still not too sure what it is and how it works. Well, we are going to answer those questions for you and multiple others that you may have as well. By the end of this piece, you will probably be as big of a Roku fan as the rest of us.
In an age where many people are “cutting the cord” and turning to streaming services such as Hulu and Netflix, Roku, Inc. is at the forefront of all this streaming action. It not only was the first company to release streaming media players and streaming sticks on the market, but also its products are arguably the easiest to use and provide the most access to streaming content of its kind.
Why is Roku Better than all its Rivals
Other media devices similar to Roku include Amazon Fire, Apple TV, and Google Chromecast. However, each of these rivals has its limitations compared Roku devices.
For starters, the Roku remote and menu are the easiest to use. This beats out the Google Chromecast right off the bat. The Chromecast does not provide a menu that you can navigate on the TV screen, and therefore has no remote either. Chromecast also frequently runs into problems with connecting your chosen device to the HDTV. With Roku, this problem rarely happens as the media player or stick connects directly to your WiFi network. As for Roku’s supremacy over the other players, it is not as obvious, but still as decisive a victory.
YOU SEE, ROKU PLAYERS PROVIDE MORE SELECTION- MEANING MORE MOVIES, TV SHOWS, AND MUSIC FOR YOU- THAT JUST IS NOT AVAILABLE ON THE OTHERS.
This is not to say Roku’s competitors do not have their merits, especially when it comes to casting content from your smartphone to your media player, but as far as streaming performance, simplicity, and content goes, Roku rules the kingdom of streaming media players and there is no heir apparent in sight. This is why Sceptre loves Roku and you should too.
