If you are a member of any online cord cutting group you have likely seen arguments over what the best service is. Almost every week I get asked what is the best device, service, and antenna, etc. No matter what cord cutting group you join, there is often debate over which streaming service or streaming player is best. We often get asked these questions, and we hope this helps answer that question.
The truth is, there is no such thing as one best streaming service or streaming player. No one option is perfect for everyone.
So, why is there no perfect option for everyone?
We are a diverse group of people. While I love football, you may hate it. The same thing goes for streaming services. They all offer different shows, channels, price points, and more. So, Netflix and Hulu may offer everything you want, but someone else may want a live TV streaming service. For example, if you are a Pac-12 fan, Sling TV is a great option. But for Big Ten fans, Sling TV may not be the best pick. (That will soon be changing as Sling TV is adding BTN later this year. Again, pointing out how what was once the best option may no longer be the best option.)
The same thing is true when it comes to streaming players. If you use iTunes, the Apple TV is the player for you; however, others may hate the remote or find the quick launch buttons on Roku to be a huge selling point.
So, the next time someone tries to tell you that their preferred player or streaming service is the best, just remember it may be best for them but not you. Get what YOU like and what has the content you want. Don’t worry about what your friend, family member, or neighbor says you should get. It may not be the right service or device for you.
