These were the list of the best Streaming devices available in India currently. If we were to pick a winner among these, we’d go with the Mi Box 4K because of the price and also the features that it offers at such a low price.

Our second pick would be Amazon’s Fire TV Stick 4K. If you already own a premium Smart TV that supports Dolby Vision, you can get the Fire TV Stick. Additionally, both the Fire TV Stick Full HD and 4K supports Apple TV.

Chromecast is for those who just want a minimal setup with no UI based streaming devices. It suits better for those who just want to cast the connect on to the big screen via smartphones(Android and iOS), Tablets, and even laptops.
