      I'm suddenly finding myself thinking about getting an Amazon Fire TV stick for my WWE Network and Netflix streaming on my TV. See it going on Amazon.co.uk for £33.20. Has anyone heard anything about these? Would it be worth the purchase or a waste of money?

      Shortie has one and she loves it. You can mod it and install a program called Kodi onto it which allows you access to every TV show and movie you could ever want, even ones currently still in theaters. :)

      I recently purchased an Amazon Fire Stick a few months ago and it was the best thing I ever did. My Mum, Dad and brother have all gone the same way after I told them about a program called Kodi that you can install on the Fire Stick and after that you install Exodus and you can get all kinds of movies and TV shows even the latest ones. I am currently using mine now :)

      To install Kodi

      To install Exodus :)

      Once you have Kodi there are so many ways to get different addons as well if you Google what you are looking for :) it really is amazing!

      Best £34.99 I ever spent :)

      I have heard good things about it, can you get tv networks on it as well like CN or the weather channel?

      Ok, so the Fire Stick came today and already I'm having an issues. The picture is stuttering and the audio is out of sync. What's the problem here? Network? TV?

      Update: I think I've resolved it by changing my video settings

      It could have been the video settings :) I had the same problem and by changing the video settings I cleared that problem. It can sometimes happen if the connection is being a little laggy as well.
