Dumped direct tv! That’s the good news. Got a fire stick from the fire stick tvguy at market of Marion. Had 2 weeks, been inoperable for over a week! Don’t waste your money. What a headache.

I think the Roku streaming device is one of the best ones to buy.

And Roku is legitimate; not sure about the one from the guy at Marion Market.

We use Apple TV and have for years. Very happy with it. Not as flexible as Roku, but works for us.

I agree. Not to suggest that this thread is about illegal streaming, but some people who would never even think about shoplifting, will use certain streaming devices to steal video content. I don't know anything about the Marion market guy either, but there are merchants selling devices to enable people to steal video content.

It's called a "jailbroken fire stick"

Google it......

You bought an electronic device at the Marion Flea Market and expected it to perform as advertised? PT Barnum was right!

One of my friends has a couple of these Jail Broken Sticks See? I can't remember his name! I don't know where he lives See! I can't imagine someone at a Flea Market would be involved in something Shady See!

Roku is The Bomb! It constantly gives you more choices. There is so much good stuff on I'm losing my tan! Book 'Em Danno!

I had Roku with an antenna.


Now I'm doing YouTube TV.
YT TV just raised their price to $50/mth.
Add that to your internet fee, pretty cheap for TV access.

Good Luck.

So did you go back to direct tv or find a better service? We have direct tv cause we take boxes back and forth. Just wondering if you found a better service? Thanks for sharing this.
