This looks like a much better device to use than a Chromecast IMO. Not having a remote was annoying as hell. I hated having to use my phone to control everything. Often times it seemed the app would "disappear" but the video still played.

Looking forward to trying this.

Viewing the ad on my phone was a bit confusing.

Just checked on computer and you guys are right.

Got mine preordered. Estimated delivery date is currently Dec 9th. :rofl: I dont particularly have a need for a streaming stick, but for 19 bucks, why not. Ive certainly spent more money on more worthless things than this in the past.

If I can find it. I thought it was still hooked to my receiver but its not there. I wonder if I sold it :rofl:

If I can find it, 10 bucks takes it.

What benefit would this have over a smart TV that I use to stream netflix and Hulu? I don't have cable so those are usually my two only options.
