    Mirroring to Roku?

    Looking at cutting the cord and considering Roku or Apple TV. 4K is not a concern. Mirroring via the Apple TV is a standout feature. Seems to me, though, there might be a way, perhaps with an app, to accomplish this with a Roku device. Can anyone explain how this is possible? My understanding of mirroring is projecting content from my iPhone or iPad onto my TV wirelessly.

    So you are looking to stream from your iPad to a set top box? Is the media stored on your tablet?

    Yes, sort of. For example, a Facebook Live event. Or videos/pictures I've personally shot.

    Ok, personally I would go with an ATV, as streaming/mirroring is seamless and baked into the OS. However, there would appear to be an app that would help you mirror to a Roku:

    Thank you! This is exactly what I am looking for. I will read the article and consider whether the frequency I am likely to want to mirror content would give the ATV the edge for me or has Roku made it easy enough. I am leaning toward Roku right now feeling that ATV is overkill for my modest needs. We will see.
