    hypothetically...a buddy could set this up for you. you buy the kindle firetv stick, he installs the software and repos, and then you can watch pretty much every tv show, movie (including those still in the theaters), porn, documentary, hbo show, netflix show, sporting event, etc, on your tv on demand for free as long as you have wifi.

    live tv is still a work in progress...but the rest? tits.

    hypothetically.

    I can't talk about it. You can also get a raspberry pi and put xbmc on it for much cheaper.

    unless it has easy access to live locan tv i really can't imagine it being better. is raspberry pi cheaper than $40 for a designated tv device? i have xbmc on my laptop and i could watch thru airplay but i like the firetv stick a lot.

    The raspberry has access to pretty much anything someone wants to code for, and someone will code for everything you can imagine.

    i tried setting it up on my work laptop and got most of the plug ins working. my pal set up his firetv stick and saved everything to an external hd. now he just plugs in new fire tv sticks, loads it on there, and everyone is good to go. hypothetically.

    thats probably on its way out. Something will replace it, but the developer has become cocky n public. He's all but daring the MPAA and authorities to come and get him.

    The WD box seems a lot clearer with more resolution compared to the fire stick. I am talking about streaming mkv/mp4 to it. The WD looks so much better for 720/1080 rips/downloads.

    I currently watch most of my stuff through Netflix. Sure they don't have everything, but they have enough to keep me entertained.
