This is a simple, down-to-earth instruction booklet that even a non-computer whiz like I could understand. It covers all of the common questions plus some that are well-beyond the average expertise in less than seventy-five pages But even the advanced information is "marked" as such. For example, I have one of the very first flat-screen TVs in my kitchen, a small, 18" without an HDMI hook-up. I thought I would connect the Fire TV there to watch while I was cooking. However, the unit requires a bit newer TV, so I had to switch it out with the TV in my guest room. So unless you are computer inclined or just a quick study who can easily absorb the tri-folded brochure that comes with Fire TV, I'd advise breaking the bank and spending the extra ten bucks for this manual.
90% of the text is nothing more than a promo for various products. I really did get tired of being told how great the Fire TV that I already owned was and how great my Prime membership is. Too, much, if not all, of the sales pitches are redundant. That is, you get the same pep talk in multiple chapters ad nauseum.Though a 2015 edition, it advises subscribing to Netflix before the 2014 rate increase. I have to wonder if the editors know how to read a calendar.While discussing the downloadable apps, it lists a number of apps that are free to download. All is well except that downloading an app for free is not the same as trying to use it for free...many have subscription fees once you get the *free* app. That aspect is not well discussed.There is *some* good information in it that can be ferreted out but one must be patient while trying to find it.
You have to buy this book if you have the Fire TV. I learned so many other ways to use my Fire that I didn't know was possible before I read this book. It gave easy to use instructions and helps to make you get the most out of your Fire TV. I am really glad I got it!
This book does what it says it will do. good book and worthwhile if you want to keep instructions handy. don't have to remember so much that way. The book is well written. One thing it doesn't address, and I would like to know, is how to use this device in other countries. I live in Canada, and we can use USA services to access some US services legally, and I would think some enterprising service would set up a way to do this.
Fire TV: better than anything on the market today. This book presents comprehensive coverage of all the Fire TV features. It does however miss on the install procedure. The missing info: if installing the unit with a wireless connection, the Router Password is case sensitive. Second, unless you've changed the router password, the password is the KEY that's listed on the router itself, at least for Verizon Routers.
Provides good detailed information for setup up of Fire TV. Unfortunately, we have significant wireless connectivity issues going on, and only get to enjoy our Fire TV about 10% of the time. Have not figured out if the problem with Fire TV, or if it is with our wireless internet network.
Just what the NEW user needs!!!! This helps get you going. I leave it on the coffee table so my husband has it at his figure tips to help him navigate. I am the techy person and love all the latest and greatest while he likes having all the info in print on "How To." THs s very helpful on learning how to easily get around and simplify things. I love the abilities and this just makes it easier.
Book is great to help you find out what you need to know. We enjoy Fire TV and can`t wait to cut the cable off for good! There is always something to watch and this book tells you who to do it all. Excellent.
