132/365 Stick of Fire

We have decided to diversify our viewing habits away from the traditional TV method. We hardly ever watch live TV these days – maybe only on Saturday nights when Strictly is on – and our Virgin TV package is getting rather expensive.

So, we are trying out the Amazon Fire Stick. First impressions are good, though it’s taking a bit of time to get used to it. We already had a smart TV in one room, but our second TV in the back room is just a normal LCD telly. It is not greatly enhanced by the Fire Stick.

While I like the functionality I do think it is pretty slow for a media device. It can take quite a few clicks just to get to view something in the BBC iPlayer app, for instance, and the menus can be slow to refresh. Still, other than this I do like it as a widget for watching my shows.
