Which device has the best app for catch up.

On the firetv the channel 4 app works, but on the nowtv the same app lets you sign in and have favourites etc.

The newer black Now Tv box is very quick for catchup - iPlayer, All4 etc.

All4 has improved, but it has so many adverts that I do try and use my Humax freesat for channel 4 - I use All4 as a last resort.

Its annoying that the Amazon devices don't have Now TV on them and ITV player/5 on demand are not on all boxes either.

Would be good to have one solution - its currently not possible - unless you go down the route of creating something bespoke (i.e. Mac Mini) or hacked.

I think a Roku box hits all the boxes for me, Amazon, Netflix and NowTV, just haven't got round to bothering to do anything about it.

My amp is optical (not HDMI) so Roku is no good for me. Was also annoyed that they removed optical from ATV4 - so stuck with ATV3

The latest Roku 4 does have optical - but its not come out in the UK yet.
