Earlier this month, Roku released its Streaming Stick. We hope the developers threw in a survival kit because the streaming device market is a real jungle out there right now.
However, many who have tried out the Roku Streaming Stick say it lags behind the competition on the little things. It’s not the best Roku, which would be the faster, more reliable Roku 3. And people who already have invested in Chromecast or an Apple TV are unlikely to switch, as both have an integration to existing apps and ecosystems that Roku can’t match.
