Amazon and Google have both released their latest streaming video services, and we’ve picked out which one you should try first.
If you’ve already got a new TV, the biggest challenge is to decide which one to buy.
Amazon is a great choice for the cost of a new Amazon Fire TV Stick or the $99 Echo Show, which offers the same features and streaming video.
Google is a bit cheaper than Amazon and offers a few extra perks including Chromecast support and streaming from the Chromecast app.
However, it’s worth considering what the quality of the content is like.
Most streaming services are good at video quality, but not always.
For example, Amazon has a lower-res 1080p HD video (up to 4K) and a slower-res 720p video (5K).
You might be able to enjoy a video from one service at the other’s low-res resolution, but this is only a short-term advantage.
A better option is to choose a streaming service with a high-quality picture.
That way, you can watch your favourite shows, movies and TV shows at their native resolution.
Some services offer more than one quality, such as Netflix, Amazon Prime Video and Hulu Plus.
You can choose between a lot of different streaming services depending on which you want to watch.
You can get a lot more value for your money if you can choose from a variety of quality options.
