The Amazon Fire TV Stick 2nd generation is a welcomed update to the previous generation. It now comes with an Alexa Voice Remote adding a nice way to interact with just your voice. With the Fire TV Stick, you have access to over 10,000 apps, games, and Alexa skills. You can feel comfortable knowing you have access to popular streaming services such as Amazon Video, HBO Now, YouTube, Hulu, and Netflix to name a few. Searching is a breeze with universal search allowing you to find movies or shows across 140 channels instead of having to go to each service individually to find what you are looking for. If you have Amazon Prime you can access all your Prime content at no additional cost and you can add premium subscriptions without needing to have a cable or satellite service. One of the nicest features is how small this is which makes it very portable and great for traveling. All you need is a display with an HDMI cable and a WiFi connection.
