I’m not in a very extravagant mood right now, so I feel like saving a buck–and there are plenty to be saved by not buying an Ultra 2020. So there are 2 basic things I want to know:
- What am I setting myself for as a Canadian?: This blog says I shouldn’t go w/Roku Ultra being Canadian. Does that mean I shouldn’t get the Roku Ultra 2020 anyway? What about the Stick+? Are there any problems for Canadians trying to use a Stick+?
- Will Tablo work less well w/Stick+?: other than the bells and whistles the above blog talks about (which I can look up for myself) will the Tablo be less compatible or are there Tablo features I’ll miss out on. With the old Chromecast I have now, there are a ton of problems: no CCs, can’t pause play, resume never works (always plays from the beginning), the connection to the app is frequently lost (although, I’m guessing that’s the nature of casting), and it will often freeze playback if the signal it records isn’t 100%. I have a smart tv that works much better than the Chromecast, but it can’t do CCs either. These are the sorts of problems I’m hoping will eliminate by upgrading. Are there any others I will take on if I go to the Stick+ instead of the Ultra?
