Amazon FireTV Stick (3rd. Gen)
The newest product from Amazon is their 3rd Generation Amazon FireTV Stick. This media player is not as powerful as the 2nd generation 4K model, since it doesn’t have as many storage capabilities and it does not support 4K. However, like the other Amazon Fire TV Sticks, the 3rd generation model requires very little power, has an easy set-up, and requires little to no maintenance.
The Amazon FireTV Stick is an entry-level media player that will work great with most basic content such as images, text, plugins like weather, RSS, stream, social media, and even HD video without additional elements. However, the media player fails on dynamic content like slide animations, and advanced playlists, and playlists with zones.
