Apple TV 4K (5th gen. 2017)

The slickest TV streaming box around got the 4K HDR upgrade it needed. If your smart TV is a bit thick and you’re an Apple user then the Apple TV 4K is an essential addition to your entertainment arsenal.

Google Chromecast Ultra

There’s almost no refuting it: Chromecast Ultra offers one of the best values for streaming video devices for 4K TV owners. There’s not as much benefit for the 1080p crowd, but if you’re looking for powerful, fast streaming in a device the size of a...

Amazon Fire TV Stick with Alexa (2017)

The first-generation Fire TV Stick was great, but lacking oomph. This new stick is more versatile, and thanks to its quad-core processor it’s super quick. Alexa is a great addition too, though not quite on the same level of intelligence as the Apple...

Google Chromecast Audio (2015)

We weren't sure that Chromecast Audio would offer enough to be worthwhile. But having setup this dinky device, we're using it every day. It's affordable enough to buy without really thinking about, simple to setup and use, and supports a range of...

Google Chromecast 2 (2nd gen, 2015)

Owners of the original Chromecast have very little reason to upgrade the new model. Google has improved the design with the Chromecast 2 and added better Wi-Fi. We also like the new app and, in general, the device is a bargain at £30. However, the Roku...

Amazon Fire TV 4K (2nd Gen) 2015

Amazon's second-generation Fire TV box is a real step forward in the media streaming sector and considering the popularity of the first one is bound to be the device chosen by many families up and down the UK as their main living room device.

Apple TV (4th Gen, 2015)

As a day one device the new Apple TV feels a bit half-baked, especially in light of the strengthening competition. And as it's taken a couple of years for a refresh to appear, so we feel Apple should be a step ahead of the game.

Roku Streaming Stick, HDMI (3500)

Amazon Fire TV (1st Gen) 2014

Faster than an Apple TV and thinner than a Roku, Amazon's Fire TV streaming player is a little box with big appeal. It's so good in fact, that it might make Prime Instant Video subscribers out of all of us.

Google Chromecast (1st gen, 2013)

There is simply nothing out there quite like the Google Chromecast. It's a brilliant and cheap way to get smart apps onto your older TV, and comes highly recommended.

The new Roku 3 is certainly a top-of-the-line streamer, but the Roku 2 is just as cool and even more affordable. Sure, the cheaper model doesn't have the voice search-enabled microphone or dedicated listening via the remote's headphone socket, though...

Google Nexus Player

Nexus Player is an oddity. It's a method for adding Android TV to an existing television set, but it doesn't bring a huge amount with it for UK users. It's neither a full TV offering, nor a full set of catch-up TV services. It isn't a bristling array...
