This article says you can steam Vue on a Roku or Fire TV, but it says the Roku 
app is inferior.  If you read the linked article, the author is complaining 
about the user interface, not the video quality, saying Sony used a standard 
Roku template rather than writing the app from scratch.

So far Sony PS Vue or whatever it is called is the only OTC that has Discovery

Roku and FireTV are the best, by far. Roku has more channels, firetv has more 
app capability (android).

AppleTV streams like shit compared to those two.

The problem with whatever app is on the TV (or if there is an app), is that if 
the TV is more than 1 year old, it will never be updated again.

The Netflix app on our (now) 5 year old LG is a poor example of how Netflix 
should actually work (or any of the online streaming services for that matter). 
I didn't realize how poor until we installed a ROKU 2, and found out what a 
reasonably modern implementation looked like.

In your experience, does it help if the customer goes through the procedure to

Most of the smart TVs we run into seem to be Samsung.  I know a lot of the 
early ones also didn’t seem to play well with certain WiFi routers.
