For a lot of folks out there, this is going to be plenty to get your cord-cutting life started. Here's everything you need to know about Amazon Fire TV, in a nutshell.
But we don't actually recommend the stick. Why? A number of reasons. Mostly because if this is the sort of thing you're going to be using a
