I've been a big fan of Alexa for the past year. I have an Echo Dot (2nd Gen) and Fire HD (2018), so I was really excited when I saw that I would be able to control my TV using the various devices. Alas, no. "Alexa, turn on the TV" is met with "The hub TV is connected is not responding..." The remote works, but integration with other Alexa enabled devices is just not there. It's probably a defect, but no stars for defects.
I should say... I was seriously considering buying a new Apple TV to replace the one I had for the past 10 yrs. But this totally negated the need for that. $35 for the Fire Stick vs. $200+ for the Apple TV is a no brainer. The Fire Stick won that one.
Hopefully the Alexa integration issue gets sorted out. I'm keeping this for now.
