Simple Streamer / Media Box

cademir 9 10 January 15, 2016 at 11:35 AM
Hello all,

Longtime slickdealer, first time poster. Apologies in advance if this has been asked before...

Does anyone have any good suggestions or deals on a simple streaming box that can play videos off of a USB drive and that has the usual streaming bits like Netflix and YouTube? It would have to have ethernet as a limitation, but I'm looking for something reasonably priced. My basic research online shows a lot of stuff from China... With a lot of fake reviews. Any help would be appreciated and thanks for your time.

Check out the Amazon FireTV (not FireStick). It meets all the requirements accept I am not sure it will play videos off the USB port. It might. It has one, and it will take a 128GB drive as I have a 128GB in mine right now. Not sure what your price range. It is wired and wireless btw.

OK just checked it will play a movie from the USB drive you need to download a free app on the FireTV like Plex.
