What I once thought was silly is now a good thing!
By Amazon Customer
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.

Perhaps the best streaming device out. And Yes, you can STILL use Kodi on this device!
By J. Paul
[[VIDEOID:36aa8d56414fef112d1ed3940cba62a6]]I know why most of you are here. So before I get started, YES. The All-New Amazon Fire TV Stick DOES work with KODI. I repeat, you will STILL be able to sideload Kodi onto this device!
Now that we have that incredibly important piece of information out of the way, I will start off by saying the All-New Amazon Fire TV Stick picks off where its ever so popular predecessor left off, offering you one of the most inexpensive ways to stream HOURS of content to your TV.
The package itself includes:
- The Fire TV Stick
- The Remote control WITH Alexa voice control
- A Power adapter
- 2 AAA batteries (by Amazon basics)
- an HDMI extender if the Fire TV Stick does not fit into your TV’s HDMI port.
The device itself couldn’t be easier to use. Simply plug it into your TV, and you’re good to go! With this device, you’ll be able to use apps such as Netflix, Pandora, HBO, and even Amazon prime (provided you’re a prime member). You will of course need accounts for all of the previously mentioned apps, but if you do not, you can also use YouTube through this device, which has hours of content on it by itself! If you’re an Amazo Prime member, you will already have access to thousands of TV shows and Movies… just in case you didn’t know!
The All New Amazon Fire TV Stick features some changes that are worth mentioning, but if you’re not too tech-savy, just know that this stick performs faster than the older model. This is due to a stronger processor, a 1.3ghz quad core processor vs a 1ghz dual core processor from older models. I WAS a bit disappointed to see that the All-New Fire TV Stick did not upgrade to 2gb of Ram. While 1gb is plenty for streaming in most cases, users may find occasional lag on the home screen, especially when first booting the device up. I’ve found that if I turn on my firestick, and go do something else for a few minutes, or just allow the device some time to boot up, I do not run into this issue. While there has not been an update in ram, I have noticed that navigating the fire stick is MUCH quicker than previous models, which will make anybody happy.
Perhaps the biggest change from the previous Fire TV Stick is the remote control. While all of the buttons are the same, you now have a “Voice Control” button on top of the remote control. By pressing this button, you are allowed access to wide range of commands that take all of the grunt work out of browsing your streaming device. For instance, you can ask Alexa to “Find horror movies”, “play music from pandora”, “fast forward 5 minutes”, etc. This feature is ESPECIALLY useful given the difficulties surrounding the use of streaming devices with a remote control that doesn’t have a keyboard or mouse. It is also worth mentioning that the buttons are now made of a soft rubber material, and are easier to use.
To conclude, If you’re looking for a portable, depdnable, and easy to use streaming device, this is it. At just under $40.00, It’s hard to say no to perhaps the least expensive streaming device on the market. While I do wish that this model featured 2gb of ram for quicker browsing, 1gb is plenty for what most people will be using this device for; streaming. All in all, I would very much recommend this device!
IF you have any questions about this device, please feel free to comment. As somebody who uses Amazon almost daily, I’ll get back to you very shortly.

This Non Tech 71 Year Old Lady Says BUY IT!!!!!!!!
By P. Smith
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.
This is NOT complicated to hook up AT ALL and there are very clear instructions that anyone can understand. The box you get includes power adapter, a cable, and extender cable, the fire stick, 2 batteries for the remote, and an Alexa Voice Remote. It's as simple as can be. First of all the instructions say the extender cable is to improve WiFi and remote performance so I used it. Why not..better is always better..lol. So...I plugged one end of the power cable into the power adapter and the other end of the cable into the fire stick. Then I plugged the fire stick into the HDMI extender cable and then plugged that into the TV. I have a wide screen Sanyo. When you stick your head around the left side of our TV you see three places to plug "things" into. They're called ports...lol. Mine are marked HDMI 1, 2, and 3. I just plugged the stick into port HDMI 1. Last, I plugged the adapter into the wall socket and that was it. That's it. THAT'S IT!!!! That's ALL I had to do. Read the short instructions to connect this fire stick. Turn on your TV and then follow the instructions that appear on your screen. The Fire Stick does the rest.
Obviously you can watch movies and TV shows as explained in the description but there's so much more. Ask Alexa what the weather is for the day in your home town or where your kids live across the country. I love music but somehow got away from listening to it over the years. Not anymore. There's always music in our house now. Just turn on the TV and tell Alexa what to play. This time I pressed the button and said..."play soft rock". Alexa said..."here's a station that plays soft rock". The first station didn't appeal to me so I pressed the button again and said "next". I got another soft classic rock station that's been playing for over an hour now. I've been listening to songs I used to love and haven't heard in a long time. How I love "Hotel California". They call them stations but it only plays music...no commercials or chatter...one song plays after the other. Also a box shows on the screen that gives you the name of the song playing and the artist. You can ask for any kind of music from classical, to rock, to alternative, to show tunes.
I'm still learning. I know there's more I can do with this and it will get easier to find exactly what I'm looking for as I play around with it. I bought mine during the introductory promotion for the "All-New" version...think it was $29.95. Now it's $10 more but still worth every cent. Don't hesitate to buy it because you think it's too complicated. They really made a good little device here and it's very easy to use for anyone who has a TV and WiFi which you probably have if you have a computer.
