The Roku streaming stick uses a traditional approach for its channel navigation and selection. The channels are all listed out once you turn the device on and an instinctive remote control enables on-screen interface navigation. The user directly clicks on the channel that he wishes to watch and streams the content to the TV from the internet. The Chromecast uses a less traditional approach, which may be difficult for the standard user to understand and can result in a psychological learning frustration. For the Chromecast, the laptop, smartphone or tablet acts as a remote control. Roku’s HDMI remote is a big boon that comes with point-anywhere attributes while the Chromecast does not have a remote at all. Roku offers a huge array of channels for the user to choose from and has no limitations over subscriptions. As of now Chromecast does not support Amazon prime video but Roku does, with addition of prime music in Roku.
