Using your TV to just watch TV is like using your smart phone to just make calls. For less than a hundred bucks you can turn your TV set into a movie theater, a photo album and stereo with a wireless streaming device. That’s why we picked the top two products to compare and contrast for you so that you can decide which is best for you.
First the Roku LT, which is only $49 and is packed with functionality. It comes preloaded with tons of applications like Netflix, Hulu+ and Amazon to stream movies and TV shows, as well as photo sites and music services.
And, for those deeply entrenched in the Apple eco-system, there’s Apple TV for $99. It offers far less in the way of preloaded content, but if you buy movies and music through iTunes and have your photos in iPhoto, or want the flexibility of beaming content from your iPhone or iPad to your TV set, then this may be the perfect choice for you.
