Maybe i am stupid but what is the advantage of the Google TV Chromecast thing compared to a Amazon Firestick, i went with the firestick as it was officially supported but just curious as i i have heard a lot have gone for the chromecast lately.
Apparently there is an Irish version, based on the very limited research I've done to find an Irish version of the App to download, one seems to exist, but just for phones as everyone here is experiencing.
Maybe there is no difference in the TV Apps.
There are advantages and disadvantages of both.
You can "cast" to the CCwGTV but only screen mirror to the Firestick. Casting is way better and reliable. Less bloatware on the CC and you can uninstall anything that you don't want. More RAM and slightly faster UI. You don't have Amazon related ads front and centre.
The Firestick has more native apps available for it. Is cheaper (generally). Has a better remote (but that's down to personal preference).
They're both great devices and a lot depends on the apps/content that you want to watch.
