Thinking about upgrading from the 1st gen fire tv stick. It's really laggy.

Don't ask here. RFD doesn't allow discussion of IPTV sources, everything else IPTV-related seems permissible though.

That you cant do with Chromecast.
1. Access to Media servers(like plex) not on your phone.
2. Watching in browser video(like streaming UFC for free from reddit) instead of using googles clunky chrome mirroring.
3. Being able to just turn on the tv and just click on free news apps(All the major ones are there, ctv, fox, cnn etc.)

Some major problems with fire tv though. The netflix app crashes alot and the only way to fix it is to restart fire tv, and it takes forever to reboot.

That's awesome. Then I can plug it into my receiver. Hopefully if I plug it in a HDMI port in the back, the remote can still work from the front :)
It comes with a little extender cable in case the HDMI port is a tight fit, or at least the one I bought last year did.

Is the 4K worth buying over the standard even if your TV is not 4K? Seems as though the performance might be better but wondering if any RFDers have noticed this in actual usage.
It is definitely faster.

I had the regular one and returned it and picked up the 4k and the difference was very noticeable.

Get 4k firestick at this price its a no brainer. Especially If able to use $10. 15$ Amazon credits off this. Even more hotter. As for iptv on this box youtube search filelink free iptv firestick.. U gotta be tech savvy to sideload free TV apps
