I have received my second Amazon Fire Stick and now have configured 5 Fire Sticks for KODI/TVMC. I have liked the FS so well, that I am going to send my Matricom to Panama City with Natalie so she can use it.
As long as you have sufficient Wi-Fi signal, the FS works as well or better than the Matricom and is less than 1/2 the cost.
The only reason to buy the Matricom is to have Ethernet connectivity to the router.
The best thing about the FS is that the remote pairs with the FS and doesn’t require line of sight to work.
I will repeat, before buying any of the Android boxes for KODI, you could try it on your PC first to verify that your internet speed is sufficient. I have had a couple Planet Telecom customers with 2 Mbps or less and have had a lot off buffering.
To test TVMC on your laptop, click HERE, and install the version you need.
