Content library – The available movies, shows and channels are the same on all devices. You get full access without any restrictions.

Layout – The layout adjusts for each device – vertical menu on Firestick vs grid guide on Roku. But you‘ll find the same main sections like Live, On Demand, Movies, etc.

Search – Universal search makes finding content quick on Fire TV and Roku. The mobile app has its own search.

Navigation – You‘ll navigate by swiping and tapping on mobile, using the remote on streaming players, and via voice commands where supported.

Streaming quality – Depends on your internet speed. Mobile will adjust for cellular vs WiFi. Firestick and Roku offer up to 4K quality.

Interruptions – Mobile has occasional ads. Firestick and Roku have fewer disruptions when casting to the big screen.

So while the layout looks a bit different, XUMO provides the same free streaming experience whether you‘re watching on an iPhone or 70" TV. Pick your preferred device!
