    Isn't Amazon Prime Video available on Roku? There's a link to it here: https://channelstore.roku.com/en-gb/details/13/prime-video. Not sure if it's only available in some regions though...

    Amazon Prime is not available in the Philippines.

    I, too, both have AppleTV (bedroom) and Roku (living room) and honestly I use Roku more. Just the overall ease of navigation through the UI makes it more convenient for me. I could use my iPhone and Apple Watch to control my Apple TV but when I'm at home I try not to use my phone so much.

    Mm...well that’s your choice but the Apple TV is extremely user-friendly.

    As for voice search through Siri on the Apple TV, it works (based on my usage) with Netflix, Amazon Prime, HBO Now, Hulu, Vudu, Foxnow, USA, SyFy, DC Universe, Bloomberg (hey, AAPL just killed it in Q4 2019.....all-time high stock price...stupid critics, stfu!! )........... etc.

    Like I said, I have been using both streaming devices for 2 years now and Roku's still my choice. I know that Apple TV is user-friendly, but I still prefer Roku. :)

    The Mi Box S will have Amazon Prime Video in the upcoming update per reports.

    So that may happen with other streaming devices too.
