I'll argue that there's no "Very Best" Netflix device. All are capable of doing what it needs to do, which is allow you to stream content from Netflix on demand. I personally use the Apple TV as my primary streaming device and have never had any issues with it. It's a commitment worth making if you're bought into the Apple ecosystem like I am.

WIRED
Apple may not have taken down the cable giants yet, but the folks in Cupertino are dead serious about the future of television. Today, at its annual iPhone launch event, the company also announced a new version of its Apple TV set-top box, leaning into the idea that apps are the future of television while trying to make everything look a little crisper.

The last Apple TV was everything we wanted from a set-top box -- except for 4K support. That's being fixed this year with the Apple TV 4K. It finally gives Apple fans a way to watch higher-resolution streaming video and, not surprisingly, it'll also accompany the debut of 4K video on iTunes.
TechCrunch
The new Apple TV is here, and it offers 4K support. That's the big reason to upgrade here, and given the growth of the 4K video content and TV hardware markets between now and the release of the last major Apple TV revision, it's a very welcome improvement.

Sure, past set top offerings have incorporated Alexa control, but this latest addition folds in the full smart speaker exp… See more

In addition to owning an Apple TV, I also own the new Fire TV Stick because I like watching content through Prime Video. There's a Netflix app as well as other apps from content providers like HBO, Hulu, Twitch, etc. Generally speaking, I like my Fire TV Stick, but I do wish that both the UI and user experience were better. A big advantage for the Fire TV St… See more

Got this as a prize from an event. Works pretty well if you're not planning to upgrade TVs anytime soon. I do like that I'm able to stream from various devices (I have an Android phone, but Apple everything else, and the rest of my family has iPhones). I like Apple TV, but only if you have all Apple devices. The voice controls are OK, however, not great for … See more

I love the Amazon Fire TV stick. I own this and an Apple TV and I use the Fire TV stick far more often. I prefer the UI / UX and the way apps operate on Amazon (namely, Netflix). Also, it's so easy to "broadcast" my Spotify playlists to my Fire TV stick when I'm not in the mood for TV.
