I've read that the Disney+ streaming channel won't be available on the Fire Stick, because Amazon and Disney are in some kind of pissing match.


They will have an android app either way, and you can sideload any android app onto firestick. Controls aren't always the best, not as if it's a perfect app, BUT it'll work.

Here is the Samsung


Here's a good site if you want to see what you gain by moving up to the next model.  Looks like you have to move up two models and spend $700 instead of $375 to see a big difference for this one.

Spend the money and get the better TV.


I bought the best one available and haven't regretted it one bit.

I never had friends later on like the ones I had when I was twelve. Jesus, does anyone?

Ended up getting an LG for about $400 and it's definitely noticeably better.

But that may very well be because my former TV was fairly old (about 10 years).

Just switched from Sling to Vue today for the Terps game. It's vastly superior to Sling in several ways IMO.
