The 3rd gen user interface is noticeably slower than the 4K. The 3rd gen also has the same design flaw as the 4K for multi-speaker setups, in that it sends stereo content to the receiver in a 5.1 "wrapper" that the receiver can't process using, e.g., Dolby ProLogic; the only workaround is to set "Surround Sound" to "Do… see more The 3rd gen user interface is noticeably slower than the 4K.

Unless you have a 4K television and the content you're watching was shot in 4K, then you're only going to be viewing HD anyway so you may as well get the 3rd gen stick with the updated security, etc. Everyone is always all over the 4K simply because it says 4K but unless you have a 4K display to watch the 4K video, you… see more Unless you have a 4K television and the content you're watching was shot in 4K, then you're only going to be viewing HD anyway so you may as well get the 3rd gen stick with the updated security, etc. Everyone is always all over the 4K simply because it says 4K but unless you have a 4K display to watch the 4K video, you're not getting 4K anyway.

Answer:
The 3rd gen is better. The 4k while it is beautiful and 4k, it is running Android 7.1 OS. The 3rd and newer firestick is running Android 9.0. it actually is providing a lot more security and newer version of Android. I would get anything 3rd Gen and over.

Answer:
With a 4.99 (or 6.99 with commercials stripped out) subscription you can. There is a free trial to make sure it works for you. I use the Philo app that has the same networks, but live and an additional 50 networks or so. Plus free DVR and VOD. Also with a free trial.
