Solutions that Don't Work

 
 

Smart TV Browsers

Smart TVs often have browsers built into them, but they are often over simplified and less functional than regular browsers. If your smart TV does not have Chrome (the browser), it will likely not run well.

 

Amazon Fire Tablets

Fire tablets look great because they are so inexpensive, but Amazon restricts installs to their app store. This means you can't get the Chrome browser, and this site will not run well.

 

Amazon Firestick

There are many devices that can give you access to streaming content like a Firestick, but they don't work well with the Chrome browser. Avoid these as a solution for streaming from our sites.
