What you missed this week on CordCutters.com

Yeah, it was all about Amazon Prime Day. And other stuff.

Amazon Prime Day has come and gone. (Though some deals definitely are lingering.) Did you buy anything? Did you stick your head in the sand and pretend that uncontrolled amounts of consumerism aren’t actually a thing?

Doesn’t matter, really — because billions and billions of people (OK, probably more like millions) did take advantage of Prime day.

And it should be no surprise that the Amazon Fire TV  [Read More…]

Streaming sports is getting better, but still has room to improve.

By the time you read this, the World Cup will be over. Or nearly over. It’s almost over, anyway. France and Croatia. Not exactly the final most were expecting. (My money’s on France.) For the most part, the streaming experience of the World Cup was pretty good. Fox had a chunk of the games — which was great, given that it’s a broadcast network, and thus free for  [Read More…]

NVIDIA Shield TV vs. Apple TV 4K: The CordCutters.com comparison

Best of the best: Apple TV 4K goes up against NVIDIA Shield TV at CordCutters.com.

Wherein the two best streaming video boxes you can buy go head to head.

One of the biggest questions folks have before cutting the cord and moving to an all-streaming video solution is hardware. Not just about which box is the best to buy, but why you should buy one over the other. And if you ask us, we’ll  [Read More…]

A major #CutTheCordDay contest, and we’ve been putting the Amazon Fire TV Cube up against everything we can.

It’s been FIGHT WEEK™️ over at CordCutters.com, with the new Amazon Fire TV going head to head against the best streaming boxes you can buy, on all the major platforms.

But the first question we asked? Should you upgrade to an Amazon Fire TV Cube from one of the other Fire TV options. That’s a good question, and one without  [Read More…]

Amazon Fire TV Cube or Roku Ultra? CordCutters.com weighs in

The Amazon Fire TV Cube and Roku Ultra.

Can Roku’s simple interface compete with the likes of Amazon Fire TV? Actually …

When I think about price and power, I’d tend to put the Amazon Fire TV Cube in the same sort of bucket as the the Roku Ultra. Never mind that they’re actually $ 30 apart. (Roku definitely comes in lighter on the wallet.) And never mind that Amazon Fire TV is  [Read More…]

What you missed this week on CordCutters.com

It’s all Amazon Fire TV, all the time. OK, a lot of the time. Some of the time.

The Amazon Fire TV Cube is now shipping, and we’ve reviewed the little box. The short version? It’s really good, actually. But definitely not perfect, and maybe not for everyone. But there’s a real reason to give it a good look.

Have a taste:

In hindsight, it’s pretty clear exactly what we should have expected. Amazon Fire TV is a  [Read More…]

Amazon Fire TV Cube, WatchTV from AT&T, and new July listings!

It’s been a big week for us at CordCutters.com. We’ve got new streaming hardware to play with, and we’re taking our time and doing it right.

OK, we’re also keeping one eye open on the World Cup games each day. And you’re still able to stream all the games on pretty much every streaming platform out there.

What else have we been up to this week? Quite  [Read More…]

The Sidekick Remote control, as reviewed by CordCutters.com

The Sideclick Universal Remote Control ($ 29 at Amazon.)

Because your remote control doesn’t have to suck. Or cost a fortune.

Let’s face it — there’s a pretty good chance that the remote control that came with your Fire TV — or your Apple TV, or your Roku, or even a Mi Box or Nexus Player — just doesn’t cut it. Too few buttons, too few functions.

But you don’t want to spring a hundred  [Read More…]

Amazon Fire TV Cube cometh …

We’ve got a big week ahead, with the impending release of the Amazon Fire TV Cube. On one hand, we pretty much know what to expect — it’s the marriage of an Echo Dot and an Fire TV. But what we don’t yet know is how well it’ll all work together. And do you really want to control that much with your voice? We’ll see.

But that’s what’s next.  [Read More…]
