Happy Friday Cord Cutters!
This week we have a Q&A on choosing a streaming TV platform, deals, short cuts, must-see TV, and more!
As always, if you know of someone who might need some insight or help with cutting the cord on cable or satellite, please forward our newsletter, or use the handy share buttons at the top of this email.
OK... now let's get to it!
Q&A > Is There A Reason to Stick With The Same Streaming Platform?
This week's question comes from Louise who says, "We've been using a Roku on our living room TV for about a year and we like it. Now we want to buy another streaming device for our bedroom TV. Is there a benefit to sticking with Roku or does it matter if we use a Fire TV or something else?"
Choosing a streaming TV platform is mostly about personal preference. Since Louise's family likes their Roku, there's no reason to switch to something else.
In fact, there are a few reasons to stick to the same platform for all the TVs in your home including:
- Interface Familiarity - It's easy to remember where to find things in the menu when it's the same on every TV
- Easy Setup of New Devices - With Roku and some other platforms, once you sign in to a new device with your account all of your apps and preferences are automatically populated
- Compatibility - If a streaming service or technology works with your chosen platform you'll never have to worry about compatibility on different TVs
However, if your current platform isn't meeting your needs or a streaming service you'd like to try isn't available on your current platform, it can't hurt to try something new.
