“Binge-watching TV shows has become an all-American pastime,” says Consumer Reports. “Streaming services and devices are ideal for marathon watchers, as well as for cord-cutters, cord-shavers (those cutting back on their pay TV service) and even the new crop of cord-nevers. Using devices like Apple TV, Roku, or Amazon Fire TV, along with subscription or pay-per-view services such as Amazon, Hulu, and Netflix, you can watch newly released and classic films, seasons of past and current TV shows, and shows and networks you used to have to subscribe to cable to get.”
Here is the Consumer Reports’ selection of recommended streaming media players. The maximum overall score is 100, and “Best Buy” models offer more value.
Consumer Reports is an American magazine published monthly since 1936. It features reviews and comparisons of consumer products and services based on reporting and results from its in-house testing laboratory and survey research centre. The magazine accepts no advertising, pays for all the products it tests, and, as a not-for-profit organisation, has no shareholders. It also publishes cleaning and general buying guides. (Wikipedia.)
