Best Cheap Media Streamers & Players
Less than $50, these media players get high marks for cable cutters on a budget.
While these devices are not in the same league feature wise as higher priced Roku or Apple TV streamers. These low cost boxes are built only to play your media and they do it amazingly well.
While not the best choice for those that want to browse and play our extensive Internet and Roku Channels, these boxes are better suited for playing local media content to your TV. Since they use flash or USB to transfer their media, they require a large library of local or downloaded content to use them to their fullest extent.
Surprisingly, many people don't want or even need anything more than these simple low cost devices. They are perfect for playing back home movies. Or, they can be hooked to a car entertainment system and keep the kids entertained for hours on a long trip to Grandma's house.
Their tiny size and low cost make them perfect for adding one to each television for playing back your local video content anywhere in the house.
