Netflix, wuaki no smart TV

6
Found 28th May 2017
I have Netflix in bedroom on PS4 but want to use it on TV in lounge but it isn't a smart TV and I only have now TV boxes which don't support Netflix or wuaki. So I'm looking to buy a roku, Chromecast for fire stick. None of them stand out to me any recommendations ? Do u need to be signed up to Amazon to use the fire stick? Is the roku streaming stick the same as roku 3? Do I need to play Netflix on my phone to stream it to the TV through a device or do these devices work like now TV . Do they all support wuaki? Thanks for reading

NowTV boxes are crippled Roku boxes so will be familiar to you.
Amazon Fire not sure as I have a subscription.
Roku stick is closer to Roku 2.
Chromecast requires a phone etc to control it, all the others have their own remote controls.
Wuaki, yes on all.
Unless you have a Amazon sub the Roku is probably the best choice, but it is not Android unlike the Amazon Fire which you can with a bit of fiddling load Android apps.
Maybe add a standalone device to your shortlist that has greater flexibility, more features, better connectivity and notably improved performance, random example at circa £35 fulfilled Amazon amazon.co.uk/dp/…WO/
I'm a fan of the chromecast, but as has been said you do need a phone or tablet to pick what you want to play. But I haven't found this restrictive. But a roku box might suit you better if you are happy with how the now tv box works.
