I'm looking for a little collective wisdom.
I'm wanting to break ties with SKYTV (It's not you, it's me... Ok, it's you). And am looking for replacements, or at least a better use of my money. So we're looking to access UK and US content.
Here's the rub:
Our current setup allows us to run everything using our Logitech remote (largely via an old repurposed AppleTV that runs Kodi too), and in that respect it feels like a single coherent 'media centre' experience - even when switching between the ATV, Sky box, BR player etc. My wife particularly will be reluctant to accept a solution that breaks this too much. So I'm trying to get away from streaming ipads/tablets/PC etc.
DNS/VPN considerations aside, I'm looking for some dedicated hardware I can use that will allow me to play Netflix, the BBC iPlayer and ITV content easily and using the Universal remote as primary input. We dont have a smart TV.
Bonus points if it'll play locally stored media too ;-)
I'm unsure whether a new ATV or Amazon Fire will tick all the boxes...
Any help greatly appreciated.
