    I was gifted this. If you have a HDMI port on your TV and wireless in the house, you'll all set. So far just movies in 1080p. (funny, my small 36" LED is 720p, yet I shows 1080 movies.) Any hints or secrets about this?? thanks

    Just watched all episodes of Orphan Black, Covert Affairs, a great 10 episode of Hugh Hefner (business wise), and watching a few K-Dramas. This is a great $40 investment.

    I bought one of these solely for travel. Between my macbook and the firestick (mainly macbook lately), I can pretty much stream anything I want if I'm staying in a hotel. I keep the fire stick and a 3ft HDMI cable in my travel bag...nothing beats catching the game you want to see while on the road, or watching your own playlist of shows while staying in a hotel.
