This stick adds excellent smart TV capability to any TV, via a HDMI port. The model I purchased (HD with TV control) has a built-in universal TV remote, which worked with my 2009 Panasonic Viera TV right out of the box, no setup needed.
It is noticeably faster and more responsive than my old Amazon Fire Stick and the audio is louder and clearer on the new model.
It gives you the option on setup to import your apps and settings from your old Amazon device (if you had one linked to your amazon account, which I did), and it saved a lot of time setting it up.
It has all the popular Australian TV streaming apps, 9Now, 7+, 10 Play, ABC iview and SBS on demand. It also has Plex, Netflix, Disney, Stan, Spotify and many more.
I would definitely recommend this to anyone wanting to expand their TV’s capability.
I’m now thinking about getting the 4K Amazon Fire stick to use on my 4K Sony android TV because the built in apps are quite slow to load and sometimes crash.
