  1. The smart thing to do is wait for other users to try and review the product and see how it is evolving before buying. FireTV has been out for awhile and few improvements have been added since release. IMO, this seems like an improved version of the FireTV. I have owned GoogleTV devices and liked them so if it has a large assortment of apps, you can side-load, have updated browser and have casting/mirroring, it should do well. At least it seems they have now Hulu Plus support which they never had before so that may be a good sign. We’ll see. I’ll keep an eye out on to which streaming devices I will purchase next but if it looks promising I will buy one.
