After Quite sometime their is device which beat Google Chromecast in price, Although Matchstick claims that it already has content partners on board, including big names like Netflix, HBO Go, and Pandora. But now in the apps and availability field Google chromecast wins the Race. Matchstick, the first HDMI stick based on Firefox OS, is the best way to experience your favorite movies, music, and games on your HDTV.

Matchstick-590x330

If you’ve ever used a Chromecast, you know that the $35 streaming stick packs a lot of power into a small package. It’s a fun device to use, but it is 100% controlled by Google. You use the apps that Google allows you to use, and developers have to follow a fairly strict set of rules in order to play in Google’s sandbox. Being the bastion of all things Open Source that they are, you can imagine that this didn’t sit particularly well with Mozilla. It’s hard to get most folks to care about something just because it is Open Source, which is a shame, but Mozilla has other tricks up their sleeve.

Mozilla Matchstick is available fro $25 in US and it will cost $5 more to ship the product to UK .
