    "As somebody who watches a lot of Netflix, I needed the easiest way to access this content. With the Amazon Fire TV, I was quite easily able to access Netflix on my TV with a simple HDMI device plugged into the back of my TV.

    "I have a four year old daughter at home who loves shows on Netflix such as My Little Pony. Before we got the Alexa Remote, I had to always help her set up the TV to watch a show. This system is incredibly intuitive and is usable even by my four year old. I love the added benefit of not having to be responsible for setting up her shows. "

    "This is a huge change from back in the days when aluminum foil and hangers stuck out of the TV to get a good signal. Now, ROKU will send you a free HDMI extension. Your little brother can finally stop being tormented so you can watch your favorite after-school special. I miss the days of free tv, so when all else failed, you could still watch the local telethons and golf. Well, those days are long gone and this ROKU stick is great. I can watch all the Netflix movies I couldn't watch back then because my little brother's arm was too tired to hold our aluminum foil hanger contraption. I recommend ordering the free extender right away so you don't have to wait in case you are impatient like me. This is way better than paying an arm and leg for cable!"
