So, what is the benefit, at this point, of getting a FireTV over a Roku? Are there apps that are exclusive to the FireTV that would make it more appealing? The price appears to be comparable. What am I missing?
Well, it basically helped reinforce my assertion that there isn't really a reason to get a FireTV instead of a Roku (except for the very small price difference in the streaming sticks - the article indicates that it's a $10 difference, but, at the moment, it looks like it's actually only a $5 difference). ‎- Mr. Noodle
They seem pretty similar, honestly. If you can get the FireTV for super cheap, that would make sense. Otherwise, unless there are Prime-related freebies or subsidising because of the set, they're about the same. ‎- Jennifer D.
