    Default Fire TV Stick £25 from Amazon

    Not sure how long the Special Offer is on for, but at £25 these are a steal!

    Probably a daft question but do I need a Kindle Fire to use this or can I chuck video content from my Google Nexus tablet on to the telly?

    Also can I get Netflix through this?

    Netflix on it and you can sideload kodi, mobdro, hd cinema and showbox on it. Ive got a droidsticks install running on it doing 1080p.

    Got myself an Amazon fire tv box last week, great piece of kit with kodi side loaded. Just grabbed one of these for the bedroom. Cheers!

    Are these worth it? For Plex, Netflix, iplayer etc?

    Can you uninstall pre-installed apps? Such as Prime?

    might buy one of these for the parents if it can take plex and stream reliably?

    It can take PLEX, I run mine with PLEX, it has frozen on a couple of occasions, but I have thrown it some heavy use.

    I think I'll upgrade to the Fire TV BOX though soon as the CPU power and RAM will stop that happening.

    Is BT Sport standard ES? Or have you side loaded it?

    I've not had a full play with mine yet other than sideload PLEX

    Plex is an app on the amazon store. Why sideload it?

    The app on the Amazon store is a demo, you then have to pay to unlock it unless you have a Plex pass.

    Sideloading might get around this?

    Got confused, sorry it was sideloaded, but I did have to pay to enable that version on Fire TV. £3.99 on off, or something like that.

    The TV Addons package is well worth installing on it (in Kodi), then for live sport, the plugins of choice at the moment are "Pak Hind", "Vdubt25", "iptv stalker" and "Phoenix".
    I have 2 of these in my bairns bedrooms, and a firetv box on my main tv. Marvelous bits of kit.

    Thanks to tronads

    Got show box on mine and have to say the remote is less than adequate. Is there a way to use my tablet as a mouse remote? I'm finding it hard to navigate using just up down left and right.
