Ignite TV Box vs. Roku?

I just got Ignite with the streaming box and Disney +. Is there any advantage to using this box over my Roku?

Agreed - if you use the Ignite TV box as your streamer, its search can find content wherever it resides - Broadcast, On Demand, Disney +, Netflix, Amazon Prime.

The Ignite box is limited to the installed apps only - no app store, but unless you're using a really niche app on Roku for niche content, the Ignite Box is fine for the major streaming services

I think it comes down to personal preference.

 

If you have Ignite TV, it's nice that the set-top box can seamlessly integrate broadcast TV and recorded/on-demand content with the streaming services that it supports.

Ignite apps cost money The same apps on Roku also cost money but Roku offers thousands of free TV and Movies

Re: Ignite TV Box vs. Roku?

Probably the same 1000s of TV shows and movies offered on the apps on the ignite box.
Hayu, tubi, YouTube, toober, filmrise, plus the premium apps as well.

There are only so many movies available to any and all streaming apps.
