I'm looking into getting a streaming player to watch video content on, including Crunchyroll. I was originally going to get an Apple TV, since I've used one myself in another house. However, I've been told by some people that a Roku 3 would be a better purchase, and since they're both priced similarly I decided to ask for opinions here.

As far as Crunchyroll goes, do videos play better on one device over the other? Or would the picture quality and navigation be equal between the two devices regardless? Are there other advantages to picking one over the other?

As this is a personal help thread, I'm closing it, but I think there probably is some discussion elsewhere regarding this in either the Help forum, or perhaps in the Premium Members group (where only premium members have access). I'll see what I can find and will add links here and PM you if I find something. In the meantime, please feel free to ask this in the General Help/Advice thread:
