Wednesday, July 11th, 2012 1:26:57 by

Media streaming boxes are not a luxury or speciality product anymore, the ubiquity of the steaming devices and their dirt-low prices have made them a household product in the last one year. However, the decision on the best product has become more and more difficult as the number of competitors is increasing day after day. The decision is not simple, so is life.

The decision on which media streaming device is the best can be divided into two categories. First, the list of most wanted channels, streaming sources or what the user wants on the television should be jotted down. Next, list the options that offer those choices should b e prioritized against the listed price.

There are a number of online streaming channels and applications ranging from movie- and song-streaming apps as Netflix to audio sources as Pandora. Moreover, not every one of these devices offers services like YouTube and HBO Go.

On the flip side, there are devices that are compatible to cable providers’ IPSs and in addition to online services, the user can also stream the cable on the television, though the number of channels in the IP services is limited.

Once the list of services has been culled down to the favourites, it is time to choose from the host of devices that are available. The price range has extended from $50 to $250, depending on how much productivity do you want to churn out of the device. There are two categories in this regard.

Media Streaming Boxes

The word media streaming, without a hint of doubt, describes this category the best. There are three or four major competitors in the dedicated media streaming device industry, Apple and Roku are the most prominent. Google recently announced its Nexus Q, an orb-shaped device, and though it has the top-end gadgetry, it lacks third-party applications.
