If you’re looking at adding a DVR, check out Fire TV Recast. This gadget lets you watch live or recorded content from over-the-air TV. All you’ll need is the Fire TV Recast, the companion Fire TV mobile app and an HD antenna.
You can also buy a TV that already has Fire TV built-in. These TVs have the same Fire TV capabilities as the separate streaming sticks, which means one less device to plug in.
