Another vote for Roku.( Also for their stock!) I get the MLB package thereupon. I also have YouTube TV that covers college football( and other sports that I don't watch.) I tried the Amazon stick and did not like the interface at all. I have both Roku sticks and boxes, both are great IMO. Good luck to you!

The IPTV service I use has like 4000 channels. Every subscription service you can think of. Every US regional channel, international channels, all the NFL, NBA, NHL subscriptions along with 128 adult channels. I pay $70 a year.

Another service called Apex is really good. I think that is well over 4000 channels for like $50 a month. I think the price depends on the reseller.

Mark: I have a Roku TV and "Standard" Roku device I hooked up to my "Non-Smart" TV. Netflix works great on both of them!😊👍

Apex is a monthly service. I can give you my guy I bought the other service from via PM if you want. You'll still need a streaming device like nVidia Shield, Roku, etc... Android based I think are most require.

All I know about Nvidia Shield is that it costs 3 to 5 times more than many other systems available. Is it 3 to 5 times better?

2nd time reading, I see it. It's only $150 so it's not like buying a TV. Why not just get that and you game controller which helps in navigating screen?

It's better than the Fire Stick and Roku; which I have both of as well.
