A:AnswerThe Fire TV box has wired and wireless internet (Stick only has wireless), Dolby Digital Plus and 5.1 surround sound (Stick only has Dolby Digital Plus), extra games that are too demanding for the Stick, it comes with the voice remote (stick comes with a normal remote), and has 2GB of memory (not storage - both come with 8GB storage, I'm referring to system memory used while running programs) instead of the Stick's 1GB. The Box is better if you're hooking it up to a home theater receiver.
Other than that, they both run typical things like Netflix and Amazon Video. Both can sideload programs like Kodi to make it a media center, or run emulators for games (although the Stick can't handle some of the more demanding games). For day-to-day use (eg. Netflix), the Stick does not run noticeably slower than the box.
A:AnswerI have both and I have to say the Fire TV blows the Roku out of the water. The reasons are that a.) Fire TV has a much faster processor. b.) I use Amazon prime and Fire TV is geared toward Prime features. c.) and most of all you can "sideload" Kodi. If you aren't familiar with Kodi, Google it.
A:AnswerWhat channels are you referring to? I use mine mostly for Netflix, Hulu+ and Amazon Prime, but am considering subscribing to Sling TV. For $20/month you can stream 23 different "cable" networks, and if you like movies, you can add HBO for an additional $15/month. If you want access to all of your local channels, you need to get a digital antenna. They don't cost much, you can use it in the house, and in my area (I do live in a metro area) I get around 35 or so channels just from the antenna feed. So, it pretty much depends what exactly you're looking for. Hope this helps.
