    Yep great little devices... :)
    The fire tv box is also very good as it has more memory and an Ethernet connection so you can hard wire to router.
    I have given up on my smart Samsung TV's and now have these fire stick, even the grandkids have got them in their rooms.
    Good job i have unlimited download...

    Another good thing about them is you don't need any sort of aerial, if you have wifi all over the house you can just plug a tv anywhere with a firestick in the back and you probably have getting on for a million channels, free.

    Come on guys.
    These sticks need to be limited.

    Keep it quiet please or else the powers that be, will stop them working.

    I bought one from ebay loaded with Kodi. (£59.99 inc p&p)
    If you don't buy direct you need to register it to your Amazon account which should be easy. But I must have pressed a wrong button and then tried doing online at Amazon but I could not find the Register button.
    So I went into Help and emailed them my problem.
    To my astonishment I then had a phone call from one of their people who talked me through it all and in fact registered it as we spoke.
    10 out of 10 for Amazon.
    Now I can play and see just what is out there.

    I found it cheaper to stick Kodi on my tablet and buy a £10 cable to plug it into the tv

    Is anyone having trouble getting itv. My sister had one for Christmas and she's very disappointed because she can't get her soaps on demand.

    They are quite often on offer on amazon for approx £25 or even at £35 it is still good and it takes approx 10 mins to load it with what is required if that. Full guides available all over the internet.

    They need updating frequently to keep the streams live but there are some front ends which make this a click of a button a way. it depends on what is loaded to how complicated it is. With the ones i have it is 2 clicks to get it to update and it just does it. Not everything works but i can gurantee you that there is a lot that do and more than i can ever watch or want to watch.

    ITV HUB.. For some reason is NOT available on a FIRE TV STICK....
    However.. it can be used an the Amazon Fire TV BOX. !!

    Dont ask me why.. I went through this sometime ago. we have several sticks and a TV box..
    It may be something to do with the smaller memory capacity on the stick but not sure..

    If you go to the firestick home page, not the kodi one you will see an icon with tv written inside a circle, go to that and all your normal channels, plus loads more are there.
    If it's not immediately obvious go from the home screen a cross to featured apps and games and it's on there.
