Hi, is it possible to find a way to watch Amazon Prime movies if you have a Tivo box? Thanks.

Re: Amuazon Prime

Fire stick is hdmi, not usb .

It uses a usb port for additional power from its own psu,  but audio and video is delivered at up to 1080p to the tv via hdmi. 

A roku stick does the same, at similar cost.

Re: Amuazon Prime

Both of those sticks need good wifi at the tv location. If that is an issue you go up the range and use wired fire tv or roku boxes,  with powerline

The top of range options also support 4k.
