    Amazon Fire TV Stick $20

    It is on sale for $20 right now for prime members only. This will be a great XBMC player for me.

    It won't arrive until January, but I will be posting a review when I get it.

    I've actually been looking for a media player, but this one's not for me. It looks great for people who want to use online services, but useless for those of us who have local media. I want to be able to play video files without my computer being on, and unfortunately a lot of devices don't let me do that.

    I have an HTPC for local media. It was a broken pc given to me, and I fixed it/re purposed it as an HTPC. Plays everything I need. Also none of the media player boxes on the market can playback my 10bit anime.

    I only bought this to use with XBMC. XBMC has a ton of nice addons to watch movies.

    You need antenna to watch TV, not a stick. Plus... what is there to watch?
