I use the Amazon fire stick a lot. *Note: Thanks to the wife being a Buyer and a having a free Amazon Prime account But it turned on the light for me on getting rid of cable TV (ComCast) or Satellite TV (Direct TV - which sux) Where it gets you though is all the app purchases. That's where you can wind up paying more than you do for cable. For example, if you like "The Walking Dead" then you have to subscribe to AMC... etc. And the sports app has also been mentioned. Now I am the kind of guy who cannot "Pirate" those as I would be in constant paranoia of SWAT teams swinging in on ropes through all my windows as well as Stormtroopers crashing in the front door all carrying weapons of mass destruction. OR More likely while mowing my lawn with a cold beer in hand, stopping by the mailbox and opening a letter that says they are suing me for $1.5 million dollars for illegally pirating those apps. On the Firestick, the game is always highlighted on the opening screen, so I'm not getting the issue? Roku kind of sux, you think you're getting the game but it's not the game, it is some a**hole talking about the game. So, I really haven't solved the entire cable/dish issue.... But I did pay the $$$ to get the app to allow me to see whatever I want if I am not going to the actual game. This keeps me out of sports bars and saves me from going broke from buying beer and wings.
