REVIEW

Amazon Fire TV

A great media streamer that will suit you perfectly if you buy everything from Amazon. If not, Roku makes better value boxes.

Roku 3 Streaming Media Player
REVIEW

Roku 3 Streaming Media Player

The Roku 3 is quick and easy to use for accessing online video services but it's pricey. It's also disappointing that it lacks support for key movie and catch up TV services including 4oD and Lovefilm.

Popcorn Hour C-300
REVIEW

Popcorn Hour C-300

The Popcorn Hour C-300 has excellent video file format support and allows you to browse through your video files by poster art. But its line-up of smart apps is relatively poor, it has buggy software and it costs way too much.
