  • Q: I only have internet service.....can I just buy this stick and be able to hook it up without cable  (21 Answers)

    By Anonymous 

    • Best answerYou don't need cable to use this stick. All you need is Internet. My house doesn't have cable, satellite, or other wired source of video. We have a TV antenna that gets us local channels. You can get content using Amazon Prime - some of which is available at no charge. You can use Pluto (ask Alexa to find Pluto, and then install it) for a variety of content. You can subscribe to Sling and get many of the channels that are offered by cable providers - all over the Internet. (Sling allows you to view on three devices at once - your TV, your phone, your computer(?)). You can also add Mobdro and Kodi. Most Amazon (.APK) programs will work with this Fire TV Stick -- just don't overload it with stuff you don't need or won't use. Again - no need for cable - it can all be done over the Internet (as long as you have WiFi)

  • Q: How does it work? What's the cost? How many channels do you get? Do you need a amazon access to access?  (10 Answers)

    By Anonymous 

    • Best answerIt works with your internet connection and pulls content from streaming services for you to watch that can be free or paid for. The cost depends on the types of content you want to access. Amazon Prime is not required to use this device. There are plenty of apps/services available that can give you content for free.

  • Q: What's the difference between Amozon Fire Stick and Roku?  (5 Answers)

    By Maneater 

    • Best answerThere is little practical difference between the Roku and Amazon Fire TV stick, as they ultimately do the same thing - which is to organize and utilize thousands of apps and programs to view TV shows, thousands of movies and documentaries. It's like the Macbook and PC computers - slightly different command controls but they all do the same thing - productivity tools, internet surfing, TV viewing etc.,

  • Q: I have amazon prime. If I purchase a fire stick will I have to pay anything else to stream TV or movies?  (5 Answers)

    By Tilatup59 

    • Best answerI have Prime and was going to ditch Netflix but I'm glad I didn't. There are a lot of things on Prime that are free but there are more that Amazon wants you to pay for. I have found more often that not that those items that you have pay Amazon for (even with Prime) are available on Netflix. Most Prime 'rentals' are 3.99 and up so you get your money's worth out of Netflix if you watch three or more prime 'rentals' (on-demand movies). The Fire TV and Fire TV Stick come with the Netflix app pre-loaded so all you need to do is either sign up or sign in. Hope this helps.
