- How to root (if you ask why to root then you don't need to root)



- Alt app stores for sideloading: APK pure and Aptoide TV

- Does it hot? 😉 historical pricing below, make your own call.

Hopefully. The thing has stayed full MSRP since Feb15 (if that can even be a thing with Amazons own product), so if it's the same pattern as last year, BF should be half price @ $34.99.
I want to add a few more IPTV sources.

Bah humbug. This is the first time the FireTV4k has gone lower in a LONG time.
Rightfully posted. If you really need one ASAP, now is the time.
If you can wait then as suggested, waiting is on the cards. A good heads-up on all accounts.

For someone looking for a licensed/certified 4K streamer then the other options are either mibox S ($100 shipped from B&H) or ShieldTV barrel ($200), making the Firestick a deal even at MSRP, for someone on the look any discount is welcome.

...and may I say, even if you don't root it (hard) and can put up with the welcome interface it's a mighty fine streamer for the price.

Let’s see if the supply chain issues allow them to bring back the historic low prices

Looks like Canada Computers also sells Mi Box. However, Retail price of Mi Box in Canada (around 100 CAD) is lot more than what they sell for in USA (around 50 USD).
I am looking to buy a Mi Box but waiting for the Borders to open.

On another note, my FireStick has been showing ads (of some tv show or something like that) from quite some time. These ads usually can't be skipped and IMO they are quite annoying.

Other than this, FireStick 4k is worth its price (when compared to other shitty Chinese android boxes or even Nvidia ones).

If you need this, there's no point waiting weeks to save a few more dollars.

It's indispensible to me, without a smart TV and having cut the cable cord.

Thanks OP.

Seems a deal to me at $10 off.

cheers

Got a Roku last month but realizing the lack of Canada apps and sports to be quite shocking. Going to return it.

Should I get the Fire TV Stick 4K instead or the Apple TV 4K at 4x the price? I do have an iPhone but still not understanding how it's 4x the cost for streaming
