Great, Easy to Use Streaming Stick
The Roku Streaming Stick is simple to set up and easy to use, and it works great! I went with this model because it has the better internet connection. We have Google Wifi, and so far everything is working great with no problems or disconnects.
We have six TV's, only one of which is a smart TV, so I needed five Roku's. I had them all hooked up and working in an hour or so, given that I had to set up Youtube TV and some other things on each of them.
My only concern (and I'm not sure if any of this is the Roku's fault) is that streaming seems to use a heck of a lot of GBs. We were on a 250 GB/mo. plan before and had to switch to a 1,000 GB/mo. plan for streaming, which doesn't look like even that will be enough. So far in the first month, with 14 days to go, we've used over 630 GBs. This is possibly due to having too many programs recorded initially on Youtube TV (which we used to DVR on Directv). I just don't know yet, and I'm monitoring the daily GB usage, which has varied between 8 GBs to 34 GBs. I know we watch TV more on the weekends, and I can't tell if Mediacom is consistently reporting it on their website.Read full review
