Buying a TV - Streaming etc. etc


#1422

People free TV’s are to be got by simply mugging off sky. I told them I was moving in, misses moving out, reduced bill too…simples

With a firestick plugged into a telly, can you plug an ethernet cable into the firestick, or does it have to run by WiFi??


#1424

Is there a port on the fire stick for an Ethernet cable?


#1425

WiFi only afaik


#1426

I just bought an adaptor yoke on amazon which looks like it should do the job. Probably won’t knowing my luck.


#1427

What adapter yoke? What are you trying to do?

The fire stick is just a stick that plugs into the HDMI port of the TV, no ethernet connection.

“Now TV” comes as a stick, an app for newer TVs and as a box. The box has an ethernet connection.


#1428

Should work grand

@habanerocat giving @flattythehurdler tech advice - what could go wrong?


#1430

You might run out of HDMI ports on the TV…
