Question

Netflix on a TV

Im told i can watch netflix on my tv rather than my iPad. Options were an HDMI outlet using a cord from my iPad to the tv. That sort of doesn’t help as i want to limit the use of my iPad.

Roku stream stick and remote was suggested. The remote/stick is around $30, which is my budget.

Chromecast was suggested and is comparable to Roku.

My issue is my tv remote (not the cable remote) is not around. So i need a remote with Netflix option, and don’t know if the two above have that.

Please give advice on my options and/or suggest another option that fits my one-time purchase budget.

Nod to the Roku.

I found the Chromecast to be too finicky and requires you use your phone or pad.

There are Roku sticks for your price and I think that's best.

Roku and Chromecast will get you Netflix but what is this about the remotes? In the Chromecast the remote is your pad or phone. With the Roku it has its own remote which is less finicky than a pad or phone. The TV remote is used to set the TV to the right input and control volume.
