How would they compare to the Deco M4?

Wouldn't mind an upgrade, if they are an upgrade.

Maybe that’s not a fair comparison, since it’s in more in line with the Sonos 1’s price point, but the 3 was ancient so you’d hope things had moved on. Alexa is great in it in fairness and a joy to not to use Sonos’ app. I’ll probably pick up a Sonos move to replace it though.

Do. I have a smart TV and it's nowhere near as smooth or functional

Also, as others have mentioned, why pay €100+ for Sky tv when you can (allegedly) pay 10% of that and get pretty much every station from all over the world with IPTV (allegedly).
Because if it's sport, you're always a minute behind. Allegedly.

I have Nighthawk Netgear Router would this work with this as well?

Also what is the difference between Firestick and Firestick Light?

They all have a 30 day free trial, but you need to have a payment address in that country.

Except Germany - I was able to join Amazon.de prime this morning for free for 30 days.

edit : just joined France prime too.


How many times can you ‘join’ the 30 days free programmer. ??? I think I joined before to get something but it fell thru. Not sure if I can get another free 30 days

They generally let you do it once a year on the same account but theres nothing stopping you making a new account each time.

The fire stick light doesn’t support Dolby Atmos sound and has a different remote with less tv controls. That’s the major difference really.

Yeah I've a Roku which I plan on replacing. and I find it reasonably good but it's not as clean and smooth as Firestick. But both are better than the Smart TV's.
