    Is the Fire TV Stick worth buying?

    I was wondering whether to get a Fire TV stick or the Google Chrome Cast

    I personally wouldn't bother, the way I understand these devices, a lot of them have pre loaded apps, most of which will require a subscription (amazon, Netflix).
    My personal choice would be a apple tv / apple device combination, this way I can find my content online and stream it to my tv, with a click of a button.

      The Apple TV is very tempting. But never been an Apple fan. No devices in this house.

    I personally dont see the point in these aside from just putting it on a larger screen than your computer, since you still have to subscribe to all the apps (as in pay for them) anyway.

    At that point, just get the cord hookup that links your computer to the TV. The computer (or tablet) has to be fairly recent in make and the TV has to be HD if you want to make your life easier. That way you can find whatever you want to watch on your device, free or otherwise, and watch it on the big screens for like 20 bucks.

      That's right - the subscriptions is what costs you.
