If you can't get enough of the latest movies, shows and games, you need more than just a cable subscription. Luckily, when it comes to gadgets that combine the best technology with the widest array of channels and apps, there's no shortage of options on the market. Our list takes into account the newest dongles along with 4K-compatible updates. When users buy our independently chosen editorial picks, we may earn commissions to support our work.

Editor's Notes

December 27, 2018: Though the best options for this category all come from the same few manufacturers, I did my best to put this list together with brand diversity in mind. Along with all the latest 4K options from Apple, Roku, and Amazon, I added some budget-friendly options. I made sure to include voice control remotes along with a few pared-down models for buyers less interested in all the bells and whistles.
