Windows, Android, or Chrome OS under $200 for watching TV using my DirecTV login

I don’t care if it’s an Android tablet, Windows laptop/tablet, or a Chromebook. $200 max but cheaper would be great.

The main things I’m looking for is a device with at least a 10inch screen with at least a 720p screen that is as close to 16x9 as possible. I already have an iPad Mini 3 and the huge black bars on the top and bottom of the screen when watching TV shows and other 16x9 content makes the screen seem even smaller than it already is.

I don’t want Android devices without OFFICIAL Google Play Services. I’ve checked some cheap no-name Android tablets and they seem to not be able to use Netflix because they have Google Play Services unofficially loaded onto them.

The Chromebook or Windows device would just have to be able to reliably stream from websites like WatchESPN, USA Network and others. I’m no multitasker. I only have 1-3 browser tabs open at once.

Sorry for such a long post. I just figured I would try and explain exactly what I’m loooking for upfront.

Sounds like an HP Stream 11 inch would meet your needs. or an ACER Aspire 1. Both handy little Windows 10 notebooks

For tablets, I like Asus Zenpad 10" for an under $200 solution.
