One streaming device brand — Roku — towers over all its competitors in terms of consumer satisfaction, according to a recent survey of Cord Cutter News readers.
Roku earned 49.3% of all reader votes. Far behind in second place was Amazon Fire TV, with 19.1% of votes. Apple TV earned 16.4% of votes, followed by Chromecast (7.9%) and Nvidia (5.6%).
Two services gained very small percentages of votes overall: Walmart’s Onn brand (0.9%), which debuted in June 2021, and TiVo (0.8%).
Roku has seven different streaming media players, not including three models that are available exclusively at either Best Buy or Walmart. The retail prices on these Roku devices range from $30 to $180.
The fact that so many people like Roku is a powerful endorsement of the company’s value. But what is right for some people — even many viewers — may not necessarily be right for you. So, make sure you do your homework and shop around.
