Maybe more Chromecast

I've been firmly in Team Roku for many years. My first streaming device was a Roku, though we also got an Apple TV around the same time. This was when there was a large difference in the apps available on the two platforms. And there was no Fire TV or Android/Google TV at the time.

I've used all four of the major platforms, and like Roku best overall. However, some family members seem to really like Fire TV. Lately, I've used more Fire TV, but still stick with Roku when it's just me watching TV.

This has come at the expense of my familiarity with Android/Google TV and Apple TV. I'm not comfortable with that. Beginning this weekend, I'm going to start using more Android/Google TV. Chromecast will be the the primary device I use. I have Chromecast attached to all my TVs already, so it'll be a matter of setting out the Chromecast remote in place of the Roku remote.

Speaking of the remote, the remote for the Chromecast has quite a different layout than the Roku remote. This will take some getting used to.

My Streaming Life is primarily Roku, but I want to stay up to speed on the other platforms. Android/Google TV will be my focus for the next month or so. We'll see what I think then.
