Media streaming has been a blessing as it saved all of us in the tough times of the Covid-19 pandemic. Sadly, we are still bearing Coronavirus lockdowns and not having enough distractions is causing boredom leading to mental illnesses. 

For the ones who didn't know about what streaming devices are, we present this short and simple guide starting from the simple definition to the top ones for users. Let’s get into top streaming options now. 

What Is A Streaming Device? 

A streaming system is offered with a portable device that allows you to stream media from your computer to your smart television set or computer screen. 

Let's make it more clear with an instance. My friend and I are roommates. For COVID-19, we ordered a firestick by Amazon, but it missed some of our favourite channels. So, we jailbroke it and customized it. It is legal, and you can also jailbreak your firestick if you want to enjoy it to the fullest with your favourites. 

These devices should have access to the internet through Wi-Fi or an ethernet cable, then they load all the content into their machine and display it on your Television. 

If you are interested, here are the top recommendations. 

1. Firestick By Amazon 

With its new streaming firestick, Amazon got almost all perfect since it supports 4K streaming and all HDR formats. 

Apart from that, it also has Dolby Atmos soundtracks for genuinely immersive audio hardware-accelerated MPEG-2 video decoding for streaming services for those who'd like to broadcast live TV over their embedded systems. 

Amazon's Alexa is also onboard, and the new remote will monitor the power and volume of your TV, as well as mute it. However, it isn't without flaws. As I mentioned earlier, it might miss some channels, but you can permanently settle that by jailbreaking your firestick for good. 

2. Google Or Android TV 

Google dedicated its first Android-based media streaming system instead of Amazon's TV products, which used a heavily updated version of Android. It is still usable on 2020 Sony TVs and the TiVo Stream 4K, but Google TV is gradually replacing it. 

Google TV is a simplified and modified version of Android TV. It includes most of the same apps and services and Google assistant and local streaming through Google Cast. 

3. Roku 

Roku refers to the utilities and applications available on its devices as Channels, and the Roku Channel Store currently has thousands of options like Roku Streaming Stick+ and Ultra, which support 4K video and HDR10. Amazon Prime Video Hulu Netflix Sling TV Twitch These are among the major streaming media names. 

4. APPLE TV 

Apple TV is pricey, but it's an easy decision for those who've invested in the iOS ecosystem, which includes the recent Apple TV streaming platform. It's the only media streaming box that facilitates iTunes clips, Apple Music, and AirPlay playback and Dolby Vision HDR. 

Apple TV also doubles as a HomeKit hub for controlling your home automation from afar. The Siri button has excellent voice control capabilities and full backing for TV sound and power.
