If you’re looking for a streaming device to stream local and online content, you should definitely pick up a PROBOX2 Air Android TV Box. Priced right and easy to use, this was another easy addition to our Top Picks of 2016.

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.

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...

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 3

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...

Roku Streaming Stick, HDMI (3500)

If you are looking to enhance your living room, or as we more likely suspect "smarten" a second TV in the house, then the Roku Streaming Stick does a good job. With full support of services like Netflix, Now TV, Sky Store, Demand 5, and 4oD, the Roku...

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.

Roku 4

When it comes to streaming 4K content, the Roku 4 offers one of the most compelling solutions out there - well, out somewhere, as it's not available in the UK just yet. But for those in the US it's an ideal way to watch 4K content, if you have a...

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...

It isn't perfect, but if you want to stream PC games to your TV the NZXT Doko does a good job for sensible money.
