Our reader poll is over, the result is now fixed and here it comes: The best streaming hardware is … The Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K. Perhaps not the most surprising win of the entire reader poll, but: credit where credit is due.
Fire TV Stick is the best streaming device out there
There are a number of streaming devices that can enhance your television. The Fire TV Stick is arguably the most popular – the victory of the readers’ choice seems to confirm this. But Amazon’s HDMI dongle should by no means be a sure hit. With the Chromecast, Google also offers an HDMI device that has its fans. Unfortunately, Xiaomi’s new Mi TV Stick was a bit late for our vote, but it could make the race tighter in the future. But there are bigger solutions too, like the Apple TV Stick. And then other manufacturers with their own platforms test Smart TV extensions via HDMI stick, for example in our readers’ choice: Telekom’s Magenta TV Stick.
In the end, the vast majority – nearly 30 percent of all participants – opted for Amazon’s Fire TV Stick. It is the most established and possibly the most convenient transmission device out there. A nimbus that Amazon has earned and developed through significant development.
