Easy to connect to TV with a HDMI input. Easy to download apps that you want. Just one word of caution. If you don't want to download apps that require payment, be sure to look for those "free" indicated. Also you must have your Amazon billing account up-to-date, even you only download free apps. One more thing, you will also get a billing email for any downloaded apps, whether or not costs are involved. Apps that I want are YouTube and Netflix and some news channels. So there were no problems at all. The remote also works very well. Comparing to the old Apple TV remotes, the Fire TV remote is refreshingly helpful. As only had it for less than a month, I hope the reliability is good.
