One of the questions we get most often is which streaming player is easiest to use. It could be for themself or a family friend that wants to cancel cable TV without having to learn a lot of new things. So if you want a super simple, easy-to-use streaming player, which one should you get Roku, Fire TV, Apple TV, or Google TV?

We asked our readers, and their answers were clear on which one they would recommend.

According to our readers, Roku is the easiest streaming player to use, followed by the Apple TV. After that, in third place was the Fire TV, and in 4th, Google TV.

Here is how this poll broke out at the time this story was written:

According to our readers, Roku wins as the easiest to use with its simple remote and simple user interface. The large clear icons for favorite streaming services also seem to be a big winner for many.

The great thing here is there are no wrong answers. All of the major streaming services are available on all devices. So you don’t have to worry about Netflix not being available on Roku or the Apple TV, for example.

The other good news is all of these streaming players are easy to use. Just like with a new car, it may be slightly different, but very quickly, you learn how that new radio works and you can still get the same radio stations your old car offered.

With that all said, if you want something easy to use, according to our readers, Roku is the device you should checkout.
