On my third devise as of today.....previous two have been Sony Blue Ray players

They both starting freezing up.....have to shut down & re boot.....about $90 a pop

So I decided to try Amazon's Firestick4K with voice remote.....so far ..wow....10 minute set up

Punch in your WiFi password and its ready to go.......Amazon registers the unit when you buy it

So all of your Amazon Prime videos/movies/shows are all there....other pay services such as Netflix...HBO etc

are there....I'll give a better update after a few days once I get aquainted with it....

Install was super simple....even with my Yamaha A/V receiver....the remote even controls volume

So if you're looking for a WiFi TV device..look here......$25 was what I paid...Considered the Roku also....

U Tube..........not me........................................... grin

I have ROKU on all three TVs. I like old movies and westerns, TV detective shows, etc. Tons of free channels, but they have commercials.

10 or 11 Roku’s here. YouTubeTV for us now. Firing DirectTV was a great day and saved me a couple hundred a month

Can you still get local news on any of these devices?

if you have an amazon firestick, spend a few hours on Troypoint.com

it will educate you about what you can do with it.

Yes, but it's a bit limited. They have a news channel that gives you news from all over the country from various local stations.

I have an almost 2 year old fire stick. The new 4k is the shizzle, from what my friends tell me. Plus you can buy additional storage for it, which makes watching the larger streams easy.

Have two Rokus and a “smart” tv. For some reason we haven’t canceled DTV yet as we watch more stuff by streaming.


Yup.

Well, I sorta got it: 14 channels of “over the air” TV and a Google Chromecast to send stuff from my phone (on WiFi) to the TV screen.

First evening of viewing............WOW...........all I can say......

more shows/sources than one can imagine......Yes I had Direct TV before too (rip off)

I still use an antenna for the local SLC fake news......

The voice activation remote is way neat.......along with internet access...I can shop Gun Broker from my recliner now !

This device is actually mind boggling...but easy to use.....electronics have passed me up long ago

All for the mere price of $26 !!!!!!!!!
