Sling brought back the native desktop apps and built Wi-Fi in to its entry-level Slingbox, now called the M1.
It looks like a Chromecast, but packs all the channels of a full-size Roku box...with just a couple of trade-offs.
The $50 Roku Streaming Stick plugs directly into an HDMI port on your TV, bringing the full Roku experience of access to 1,200 streaming channels without all those cables.
The Streaming Stick contains the same access to Roku's 1,200 streaming channels as any of its other devices, but in a compact form factor that plugs into a TV's HDMI port.
The Tablo DVR lets you watch and record live TV to play on your tablet or smartphone—no television required.
