I recently hooked up a Roku Streaming Stick+ to my smart tv. I now need to replace the tv, and I'm wondering if I should buy a Roku tv, or if a smart tv with the roku stick will give me the same programs and features ?? I also see alot of the Roku tv's show Apple and IPhone references. I dont have or use Apple. Does that affect the operation of the Roku tv if I go that route ?? Any help is appreciated.
It really doesn't matter if you get a Roku TV or a different TV and attach a Roku, if the Roku has the features you want. By that, an Express might not have the features you want, for instance, while the Stick+ has most of the features Roku offers. The Ultra might be overkill for some.
Personally, I'd find a TV that had a picture I liked and not worry about its "smarts." If it came down to a couple of TVs, then I'd let the built-in Roku be the deciding factor.
