whats better out of chromecast and apple tv?
« on: July 28, 2015, 08:36:35 PM »
we got a decision to make... the missus has wanted TV for awhile but we don't like the ads or nothing. she got netflix and had some kind of plan to HDMI her tablet to the tv or something i dunno how it works. but then she's gone into the electronics store and come back like its either apple tv or chromecast.

apparently the guy told her apple tv can do PPV WWE events and stuff so it makes me hopeful it'll have UFC events on there also... but in smalltown NZ who the f... er, stop myself there for a second. right. who knows about this stuff here? nobody really. ask my esteemed internet buddies, good plan...

there's a significant price difference but if the more expensive one is way more better then it's probably worth it eh.

it is the more expensive one but it's got apparently a whole bunch of stuff you can access on it on your tv through it. as mentioned, there's WWe PPV's which makes me hopeful for other sporting PPV i'd like to watch.
frpm what i been told chromecast has way less stuff on it or something.

Is the Roku not an option? Personally I like that one best. Does everything the apple tv does if not more (also at a much better price) and it's better than the chromecast.

I've got AppleTV. It's fine enough as a stand alone product but becomes more functional if you have other other Apple devices. The native YouTube app and the physical remote are both pretty terrible though.

Sorry if this is too late, I just joined SD today.

we got chromecast in the end. it didn't work very well and then our tv died. i don't think the chromecast caused it to die though, just happened. overall i wasn't very impressed with the chromecast though. you can't pause video to let it buffer when your casting it, it only has the option to "play". but it does download updates for itself so any issues at present may be addressed in time.
