A tutorial on the “10 Hidden Amazon Fire Stick Features & Settings”

Here at “Tech News For You” I have been experimenting with various online TV streaming options. So far, I am stuck on the Amazon Fire Stick. I was going to write an article about some of the hidden features and settings that I have come across, but found this great video that covers all the bases. If you are interested in giving an Amazon Fire Stick a try, they are available at Amazon (click here), are reasonable in cost, and provide a great way to cut the cord from cable. What I have found is that the Fire Stick is basically Android on a stick which means you can install many Android apps.

Streaming app Peacock has free movies and TV shows, and it unlocks more if you pay. And it’s finally coming to Roku…

Peacock’s free tier, with about two-thirds of the catalog, is available to watch right away with advertising after you register an email and password. You can unlock the full library of shows and movies for a price — $4.99 a month for the full catalog plus ads or $9.99 a month to go ad-free. Peacock offers a standard seven-day free trial for its premium tiers, and, again, people who sign up on a Google platform like Android can snag an extended free trial.

Get “$5 Off” your first month with “Philo TV”…

Philo is a awesome online streaming TV service that is very economical in cost ($20 per month). Below you will see their channel lineup and if you notice there are no sports channel and the news is limited to BBC (which is a very good news source). This is what keeps their cost down; yet, provide a popular channel lineup.  Here at “Tech News For You”, myself and my wife find the news we need online and the sport channels are really not critical to us. If you want more, check out locast.org (for local stations at $5 per month) and for $25 a month you have some great TV to watch.

To get $5 your first month with Philo,

Nobody likes paying high cable bills. But if you’re apprehensive about canceling cable entirely, you’re not alone…

Because so many streaming services offer video on demand, cord cutters don’t have to let the cable companies control their schedules. While cable users flip through the channels and complain that nothing is on, cord cutters can navigate right to their favorite shows. Play and pause whenever you feel like it – Netflix, Hulu, and other OTT providers accommodate your schedule. On-demand streaming services are the ultimate DVRs.

Is It Time To Cut The Cord?

Maybe you’re sick of paying for streaming services you don’t actually use as much as you thought you would. Maybe you’ve just gone through all the movies you want to see on Netflix. Maybe you’re looking for something a little weirder or less mainstream than what you’ll find on traditional streaming services. Whatever the reason, there may come a time when you’re looking for something to watch that won’t dent your wallet. There are tons of sites and services out there, but some are less legal or trustworthy than you may feel comfortable using.

Watch Live American TV Online With USTVnow

We all envision the day that we can watch TV online without jumping through a bunch of hoops and give us the same ease of use that we are accustomed to when watching TV at home. USTVnow is an online service that is as close to this vision as it gets; that includes all major terrestrial stations that an American citizen or resident would normally receive. The FREE version gives you LIVE streaming access to stations such as ABC, CBS, CW, FOX, NBC, PBS, and My9 in high resolution for 45 days. After the 45 days, it drops to low resolution. You have the option to upgrade to a paid plan, which includes the aforementioned networks; PLUS, additional top cable TV channels. I tried USTVnow; and, at high resolution, you cannot beat it. I haven’t experienced it at low resolution yet. After I discovered USTVnow, which has been streaming live TV on or before 2012, I was wondering How Is This Legal?  Anyhow, thought I would share this with you and let you decide…
