What I once thought was silly is now a good thing!
Earlier this month, my TV entertainment included Dish 200+ channel satellite TV, 20Mbps turbo internet, Netflix, and Amazon Prime. After doing some research, I bought 3 Amazon Fire Sticks with the voice remote, cancelled Dish, upgraded to 30Mbps internet, added Sling 25 channels, added standard Hulu, and CBS All Access. Guess who still gets 96+% of the channels watched, added Prime Music and several hundred shows (that networks don’t play) to all the TVs in the house, and saved over $700 per year compared to what I paid this past year? I did. I never thought of “cutting the cord” until I really looked into it all. Getting Amazon Fire Sticks are worth it and they work well….and once you get used to knowing what show plays where, it’s a no-brainer. Just like how you originally had to figure out how to use a smart phone back in the day. After a while, it’s a breeze. I highly recommend everything I listed in this review. Seriously….take a couple hours and make a spread-sheet listing the must-have shows that people in your household watch. Then make a comparison to what’s available on the streaming services. If you’re like me, and you don’t watch 80% of the channels you pay for, it’s so worth it.
Kick cable to the curb!
My cable bill was north of $200 a month and i started realizing i could not for the life of me figure out why i was still paying this much. After picking up a couple of these Fire TV Sticks I kicked the cable company to the side, picked up a TV tuner, and turned my home computer into a Plex Media Server. I now get over 100 HD channels, with DVR capabilities completely free, and the best part? I can stream it to any TV in the house and it is all thanks to these little Fire Sticks. Besides my own media I am an Amazon Prime member which means hundreds of TV’s and Movies can also be directly streamed through this little Fire TV stick, as well as Hulu/Netflix if you are a paying subscriber to those as well.
The Amazon Fire Stick is an amazing device. Television services are moving away from cable and satellite and are moving toward internet based streaming formats. These internet based services work from apps (software packets) and the AFS (Amazon Fire Stick) provides you with these apps. In fact, it provides you with every kind of app you can think of and the AFS does it at an affordable price.
This Non Tech 71 Year Old Lady Says BUY IT!!!!!!!!
I am SO GLAD I bought this Fire TV Stick with Alexa. It has literally made my life happier. As I write this review I’m listening to “soft classic rock”. All I had to do was say…”Play soft classic rock” and music started playing. For people like me who are elderly, tech illiterate, perhaps disabled, and who love music, movies, and TV shows, let me explain a few things. I’ve been looking at this stick for some time now but was scared to buy it. Then one day I said…the heck with it…I’m not stupid…I can read instructions…if it doesn’t work for me I can send it back…I have nothing to lose and it’s affordable. So I purchased a fire stick…yea me…lol.
Best purchase this season!
I bought this figuring $25 on black friday wouldn’t be too much of an investment in case I didn’t like the fire stick, and I am SO GLAD I did!! I had an HDTV with no cable box and had just been connecting my laptop to it with an HDMI cord to watch Netflix, but now I can relax across the room and still have Netflix or HBO playing on the TV without keeping my laptop attached to the TV by a cord. The set-up was super simple and everything worked perfectly right away. There’s NO reason to pay for cable when you have an HDTV and an Amazon Fire Stick. It’s basically a $25 at home theater, and with Alexa capabilities you can even check the weather in the morning. It’s perfect, and makes my life so much easier!
Easy to set up and use. Yay!
Set this up for a friend and found it very simple. It attaches to the amazon account that purchased it initially. So i created her an amazon account and was able to link it to her new account instead. All i had to do was pug it into the back of the tv (i had to use the little extender because there wasn’t enough room at the back for it to sit next to the other HDMI plug), then plug it into a power source and switch the TV input. Then the screen prompted me to choose the network, enter internet password, and so on. You will need to have a form of payment on file to download any “apps”, even if they are free… Just so you know. You will not be charged anything to use this product, there is a lot of free content, but should you want to purchase it is easier for everyone if there is already a card on file so you can watch immediately.
Pros & Cons of the new Fire Stick (vs. Roku 3600R)
I own both the new Fire and Roku stick (3600R), below is a short review and honest (personal) opinion on both products.
Finally, no more Dish or DirecTV bills
My contract was just about up with Dish and I contemplated going to DirecTV, but after seeing a Sling commercial, I checked it out and checked out the Fire Stick on here and am so glad I did. First off, the Fire Stick is amazing. I installed it right away and used the extender and it was as easy as that. There are so many options and the remote is heaven too. I signed up with Sling and along with Netflix, Hulu and Amazon Prime I am STILL paying less a month than with one month of service with Dish, and on top of that before I also paid for the apps monthly. I had upgraded my internet a few months ago to 60 mbps so that makes it all even better. All I can sat is, this is so much better than being stuck in a contract and paying more, I fully recommend the Fire Stick, oh and Alexa is amazing with the remore just like the Dot. 👍👏😊
Cluttered Navigation Menu Holds the Fire Stick Back!
I purchased the latest generation Amazon Fire TV Stick to replace the second Roku 3 that had failed in my home in just a few years. Determined not to purchase another Roku product I instead opted to try Amazon’s Fire TV Stick despite the large gap in channel offerings, notably with Google Play and Google-owned IP like YouTube.
