One of this year's hottest gifts is a streaming media player. Many of them have been on sale for the holidays, including on Black Friday and Cyber Monday, at stores like Wal-Mart and online retailers such as Amazon.

There's a good reason for their popularity. Streaming media player boxes, like Roku and Apple TV, or streaming sticks like Amazon Fire TV Stick and Google Chromecast, are inexpensive and they enrich your TV viewing experience.

With streaming media devices starting at just $35 (or less on sale), you can plug one into your TV set. When you sign up for paid services like Netflix, or free networks like Crackle and Hulu, you suddenly have access to thousands of current and classic TV shows and movies that you can watch whenever you want.

You can watch all that content, plus your local TV channels and network programs on ABC, CBS, Fox, NBC and others, even if you get rid of your pay cable TV or satellite TV service. (You can keep your cable TV or satellite TV, if want to. Although, for $100 or more a month, there's no reason to keep it).

With so many choices for streaming media players out there, picking the right one can be tough. How do you know which one is best for you?

There's Apple TV, Roku, Chromecast, Amazon Fire TV, and others. Each one has unique features, so you need to do research to find the one that fits your needs. But, don't worry. We've already done that for you.

Note: To watch your favorite TV channels for free, you can attach the ultra-thin, low-cost Komando Indoor Amplified HD Antenna. Find it in the Komando Shop. You can watch your favorite TV shows in HD, with no monthly subscription.
