sog35 said:Why the AppleTV is worth the extra costs:
1. Roku has ads on the home screen. Pathetic. And expect more and more ads on the Roku UI. The CEO of Roku said the future of Roku is ads:
"We have ads on the home screen, and it’s a great place to influence what content viewers watch. So we monetize that." Roku CEO
2. On board memory. 32 GB vs 4 GB on Roku.
3. Much faster CPU
4. Much faster GPU
5. Free 4k upgrades
6. Much better UI
7. Much better Apps and App support
Trying to save a few pennies a day to use a clearly inferior product seems ridiculous to me.
Especially if you spent THOUSAND of dollars on your display and sound system.
