Getting Fired up; Amazon Fire TV

Posted by on October 17, 2014 at 9:32 am.

Amazon FireTVI told my daughter when the Amazon Fire TV came down in price I would purchase it for our home.

Early this morning, while surfing on my iPad, I noticed that the price had dropped by $15, so it is now $84! After some deliberation, I purchased the Amazon Fire TV and requested next day delivery.

This is an item, that I’ve been watching since it was released on April 2, 2014. And while I wanted to make the leap then, as with any purchase, I researched and came away with a lot of knowledge and knowing that I’d eventually purchase the item. I must say that I’m looking forward to watching a variety of things on the Amazon Fire TV; movies, pretty much anything history related, documentaries, tutorials. To be honest, we rarely watch the regular shows since it has so much junk! I’m not kidding when I say weeks and sometimes months go by without us watching regular TV. However, we do occasionally watch videos.

Since I’m an Amazon Prime member, there are literally thousands of videos that are already freely included with the subscription.  Up until now, we’ve been watching streaming movies onto my iPad. Watching streaming content on our mounted 70″ flat screen TV will be the prefect way to unwind… when my daughter and me aren’t outdoors or doing something creative.

Tomorrow evening, we’ll get the popcorn started, I’ll pull out my knitting needles or loom, and we’ll settle down and watch something on the Amazon Fire TV. The set up seems to be a breeze, so we should be enjoy watching streaming videos sooner rather than later! I’m looking forward to the experience.

    Can’t wait to hear more about your experience with this! We’ve had Apple TV for a few years and LOVE it! We don’t have regular TV, Cable, satellite, etc…for pretty much the same reason…a lot of junk for a lot of money! We DO have Hulu+ and Netflix and both of those have apps on the Apple TV.

    @Jennifer, First impressions are that I like it a lot. I would have gone with Apple TV if I wasn’t already an Amazon Prime member. With over 40,000 free movies to choose from because of my membership I’d have a hard time justifying using another device over Amazon’s.
