Answer:
The very best improvement that makes the purchase worthwhile is the updating of the WiFi. This has everything to do with a program buffering.
As an example, my original Firestick in the back bedroom (I own 4 Firesticks) showed an Internet Speed of 21mbps. With the new 4k not only is the procrssor speed faster it shows… see more

This fact alone makes it a must. I do like the volume & on/off button also. see less

The HDMI connector gets plugged-in to the HDMI port of the TV. The product comes with a mini-USB to USB cable. Connect one of the cable to the Fire Stick and the other end to the power adapter (also included in the product.) Once the Fire TV is powered on, you might have to select the source on the TV to specify which input port the Fire TV is connected to (this is no different than any other input source you would have tried to connect to the TV e.g. a blu ray player)

Upon plugging in the Fire TV for the first time the setup process will do the following:
1. Selecting the language
2. Configure Wireless internet's configuration.
3. Once that is done Fire TV installs and downloads the latest software. Software download did not take much time but the installation took 3 minutes.
4. Fire TV then sets up the remote to control the TV. It asks you to control the volume of TV using Fire TV's remote.
5. After that, you can connect the Fire TV to your account. If you purchased the Fire TV from Amazon, then it is already connected to your account.
6. You can set up parental controls after connecting the Fire TV to your account.
7. After this, a brief video of Fire TV's features is shown.
8. After the video interface of Fire TV is shown. see less

Answer:
I own 4 Firesticks & do not own a 4k TV. Works great. In fact unless your Internet speed is extremely fast, 720 is a really good picture & is far less liable to experience buffering issues.

Answer:
You'll get all local channels, anything within 100mile radius. You don't need cable/satellite - just buy the GE Antenna (indoor/Outdoor) about $40 on Amazon. and you'll be set.

Answer:
Go to the product page, ASIN B074TC662N, and read this:
"Compatible with current Fire TV Stick (2016 release), Amazon Fire TV (2017 release), Fire TV Stick 4K, and Fire TV Cube."
That said, comparability with the router and network setup will vary with ones hardware and skillset.

Honestly I mostly watch movies not on the cable channels. Was tired of wasting money on premium channels and over 400 channels of which I only watched 1 maybe 2 channels. Now am saving $125 per month and still watch most movies offered through prime membership. If you are not a prime member and have Netflix you have access to that as well since Fire stick works only through your wi-fi. It was recommended to me by co workers and I love it. see less You do not need amazon prime., however being an amazon prime member does open many opportunites to movie viewing.

Answer:
You can download an app "Fire TV" on a phone or tablet device. you have to enter a pin from the tv, and it takes a little getting used to but you can go to settings and pair your remote. you can also do this if you lose or break your remote and need to pair a new one.
