    For most of my Apple oriented friends, there can never truly be a replacement for the Apple TV since the device integrates so well with all of the other apple products on their network. Not to mention some of the Applecentric services that Apple will never make available to any other devices.

    So for those of you who will never give up your Apple TV and based on what you've seen so far, what do you think the best companion to the Apple TV will be? The Roku or the Fire TV?

    If you have some IOS devices I think the ATV and Roku is the best combo. You get all of that great airplay capability with apple and its devices and the most content apps via Roku.

    I'd add only that the Roku can't do anything the AFTV can do. Add to that a browser and XBMC/Kodi and the AFTV really starts to shine.

    I'll also note that Apple TV 3rd gen can only mirror Kodi with airplay from a Mac or Jailbroken iPhone or iPad.
