The rise of Netflix, Stan and Presto has ushered in a slew of dedicated streaming devices. Here's how the leading devices stack up.

For a long while, Apple TV and Chromecast were the most popular options for streaming Netflix, Presto and Stan.  However, now Telstra and even Fetch are catering to the streaming generation with new dedicated streaming devices like Telstra TV and Fetch TV Mini.

Note: Chromecast is a digital media player that requires a device (smartphone, tablet or PC) to stream from. It does not stream the services below as a standalone device.
