I doubt it would work for Kodi, only amazon and netflix right? And even then you’d need the remote to put in the parental control code wouldn’t you?
Unfortunately I don’t use the two things you mentioned - Kodi and parental controls. I primarily use Amazon, Netflix and now the Firefox app to access YouTube. Even if Alexa hasn’t worked on a specific app (i.e. it doesn’t find YouTube inside Firefox), the voice control to pause, play, etc…works through the Echo once the content is playing.
So for me I really did just add the Fire TV to my Alexa app and was good to go.
I hope others can help answer this since I plan to install Kodi at some point.
Read the reviews, starting with the first one, which currently has 791 votes. I swear it reads like the best of the funniest FW threads. ROFLMAO
While I was saddened to find out that it’s not as good as the old Fire TV, I am looking to upgrade my fire TV stick which has been kind of slow with the latest updates. I’m also excited that it has an antenna and ability to view local broadcasts.
It’s got 5Ghz AC wireless which is good enough for me. I haven’t used Ethernet in years.
I haven’t checked to see if Roku has/will be issuing a replacement model or something but I’ve had this for over a year now and it’s worked without a hitch. Good entry into the Roku world (unless you want 4K I suspect).
I got this as a second unit a few months ago
It came with one month DirectV free, a plus
Note that the other option " Echo Plus + Philips Hue bulb included" is the same price. So the “Philips 455295 Hue White A19 Single LED Bulb, Works with Amazon Alexa” is free (4.2 out of 5 stars by 155 reviewers)… a $12 to $15 value.
