We've bought a new stove, it will be delivered in three/four weeks. I think, it's more "gemuetlich"  lachen.gif

my wife bought one about 4 months ago. We are supposed to have 3mb download speed, that is 3mb max. Too slow to use during peak times. If you want to watch a movie at 3am, it works great. Now I think it is in the pile with her 2 kindles, ipads, old laptops and cell phones. She wastes more money on that crap

I did see a "fire tv" at a home depot type store. $200 for a 24" lcd tv in a fancy case that played a video of a fire. :wallbanging:

I can't tell you about Fire TV but we do have a Roku that we enjoy a lot.  It's easy to use and when DirectTV only has reruns, which seems to happen a lot, on we can switch over and watch Netflix, Hulu and others.  It have also watch TV programs from other countries like the UK and Australia which we have enjoyed.

I'd second the Roku as an alternate to the Fire.  Roku gives you more flexibility.  I have an AppleTV too and use it for most things but the Roku was hard to beat for the money when I picked it up.

I bought one for the youngest daughter when they first came out. She has to sponge off our WIFI about 200 feet down the hill, but can usually use it (I put a repeater in her house to help). You'd want Prime if you get one - she watches a lot on it I think. She has satellite and we have cable and cable modem. We use a couple cheap Android dongles on our sets here - good for getting some sports that don't all come on cable unless you have a mega-expensive package.

Sometimes I can't understand how we could grow up in the 1960's without 4K TV only looking b/w films mostly less then one hour a day....

I'm guessing it's a net base TV ?  We have cable but  I know my wife has Hulu & Netflix .  I've seen Roku  on the TV screen ,is that how were getting these ?  Funny with all the crappy new shows we watch old shows like MASH , on Me TV .
