Hard to keep up with the changes

Last year I invested in a few Chrome dongles. casting Shaw BlueCurve TV work very well. Now I see Amazon fire makes a dongle with 4K TV and there is a Blue Curve app available to be downloaded direct to the player. Grrr why these companies create these proprietary zones. Why does Shaw Blue Curve work directly on Amazon Fire, stream on Google chrome Cast and well do nothing on Apple TV? I look to the day Shaw Blue Curve or Rogers Ignite will play on all the devices natively. All these variations and limitations, brought on by the marketing department are annoying and certainly doesn’t have the customer in mind. 

Really how many hardware platforms do we need?

Indeed, I wish the Fire TV option was around when I loaded up on the Google dongles. Hopefully Shaw will soon carry the BlueCurve app on Google TV. 

Another example of goofy marketing options: I have a number of Bose network speakers. Airplay works fine as does Amazon Alexa. There is even access to Amazon Lite. There is no music option(YouTube Music) on Google though at least on the player option. Perhaps Google TV. 🙄

So yes seems Fire TV is a good choice going forward.
