This video is about Amazon’s Fire TV Stick, and this video is designed to save you time, so you don’t need to read lots and lots of reviews online and then watch even more review videos, just to get all of the information which is already here, in this 1 video.
Millions of people are getting rid of their expensive monthly cable bill and becoming what’s called a “cord-cutter”. Personally, I’ve done this for over a decade and I will never go back to cable TV. People are cordcutting so they can pay a lot less money every month for home entertainment, and they don’t pay for anything they don’t want, and the upfront cost to purchase the Fire TV Stick is really low too. Now, the reason you can buy this device at such a low price is because Amazon wants to get these devices into your hands, so they can offer you other products and services over the long term. For example, they are hoping you will buy movies through their Prime Video app and they hope you will start to buy more products through the Amazon marketplace, and maybe even become a Prime member. Of course, you’re not forced to buy anything from Amazon, but they want to make buying from them as easy as possible. So, as long as you know that and you are okay with Amazon offering you things in non-pushy ways, this electronic device is a really good deal. You can still use the Fire TV Stick if you are also paying for cable or satellite TV, but you might find yourself eventually cancelling those high monthly cable bills and only using the Fire Stick for all your home entertainment needs.
Amazon’s Fire TV Stick is currently the #1 best-selling streaming media player, for lots of reasons. The number one reason is typically that it cost so little in order to get so many entertainment options. You can also access countless shows from Netflix, YouTube, Prime Video, STARZ, SHOWTIME, or CBS All Access, plus stream for free with Pluto TV, IMDb TV, and others. You can also view live camera feeds, check the weather, stream music to play while you are doing other things at home like house work or school work, and even set it up to work with some types of smart home technology which can, for example, dim the lights in your house before you start to watch a show without getting up off the couch to do that. In addition, you can access tens of thousands of channels, apps, and Alexa skills, plus browse millions of websites like Facebook and Reddit using Firefox or Silk.
You can use your Alexa Voice Remote to request a song, artist, playlist, or control playback through services like Amazon Music, Apple Music, Spotify, Pandora and iHeartRadio. You can also watch live TV and sports with subscriptions to Hulu, PlayStation Vue, Sling, and others. Subscription fees may apply for some of those services though, but again, you only pay for what you want, and personally, my family has found that no matter what we subscribe to or purchase through the Fire TV stick, it is still far cheaper than paying a high cable bill every month.
By the way, Amazon Prime members get unlimited free access to thousands of movies and TV episodes, plus ad-free listening to millions of songs with Prime Music. Personally, I think getting all that stuff is one of the best things about having a Prime membership.
With the Alexa Voice Remote, you can press a button and ask Alexa to find your favorite movies and TV episodes, plus live news and sports. Plus, power and volume buttons give you enough control over your tv that you may find yourself not using your TV’s regular remote control much anymore.
The Fire TV Stick works with ANY HDTV so you can easily remove it from your own TV set at home, put it in your pocket and then take it over to a friend’s house or bring it along to hotels and dorm rooms. Just plug and play anywhere–all you need is a Wi-Fi connection, and you can quickly UPGRADE any HDTV that doesn’t yet have the advantages of the Fire TV Stick.
