Ohiofarmgirl's Adventures in The Good Land is largely a fish out of water tale about how I eventually found my footing on a small farm in an Amish town. We are a mostly organic, somewhat self sufficient, sustainable farm in Ohio. There's action and adventure and I'll always tell you the truth about farming.

Amazon Fire TV on Sale!

How could I have missed this? Check it out - the Amazon Fire TV is on sale for just $74.99! Immediately stop what you are doing and give a give a click or just order it.If you've been waiting for Amazon Fire to be on sale this is it!
We love our Amazon Fire TV. We watch it more than regular TV. Why do we love it so much? You can read about it here in this post. Lots of folks ask me questions about it. Here are the short hand Q and A's:

1. Is it worth it? Yes. Every single penny.
2. How does it work? It's like having cable without paying a cable bill. You can watch stuff online... but on your TV.
3. But does it work? Yes. Like a dream.
4. But I have an older TV that doesn't have a USB port.... Friend, it's time for you to upgrade.

If you are still on the fence and then consider the then consider the Amazon Fire TV Stick. The sale price is just $24.99 and you seriously can't beat that with a... well, stick. We have both the Fire box and the Stick. The difference in performance is minimal but I notice it when I watch the downstairs TV with the Stick. It just takes an extra second to load but that is it.

We don't use the gaming functions but I guess people like that.

A new thing I did discovered is Amazon's Music. You can tune into tons of songs and genres using your Fire. It's fun and easy. I'm not really a 'listen to music' kind of person but I've started checking it out for background noise.

But mostly we just watch TV. But better TV. Regular TV is horrible - the ads, the selection, the quality of shows... ugh. With Amazon Fire TV we can watch what we want - on Amazon's Instant Video service, on Amazon Prime, and on the NetFlix.

We watch the NetFlix so much that Zander has his own channel. He loves the tiger and bear shows. When we are stuck inside we put on a nature show with tigers in it to keep him entertained and he just loves to watch. No really - he watches! He loves it so much we had to make his own channel with bear shows because instead of getting recommendations for gritty crime dramas... I was getting all Nature Channel shows. Now that Bubby has his own channel I'm back to getting crime shows in my recommendations.

But if you really want a reason to pull the trigger then you need to check out Amazon's award winning original content. I'm currently watching The Man In The High Castle.It's incredible. The production is good, the acting is good, the story is terrific - so much better then the crap on "regular" TV.

NetFlix also has it's own original programming and it's very very good. We can watch the NetFlix on the Amazon Fire TV - it's just another channel on the Fire TV. My other favorite channels are the CBSN Live (which is "mostly" life news) and Pluto.tv which has a ton of content.... my favorite is the "Slow TV" channel which usually has relaxing beach scenes or sometimes you are riding on a train or boat. It's just something nice to look up and see while I'm in the house working.

I have a feeling there are going to be some great online sales coming up in the next few days. Don't want to go out to shop? Just stay home... order the Amazon Fire TV and feel all your cares just melt away.....

Happy Friday everyone! I'd rather clean out the meat chickens coop and then order stuff online then go into town and shop today...  good luck if you are out there!

Editors note: It's Black Friday - how about some affiliate links in this post? You don't have to go out to shop - just shop online! Easy Peasy!

Or using the black Amazon search box on the right side of this page. It doesn't cost you once cent more but helps me with the "cost" of this blog. If you like this blog, or if I've helped you at all in your farming efforts, just make a purchase from Amazon from one of the links, my store, or the black Amazon search box on the right side of this page. Thanks!

Hi, I was wondering what kind of internet you have, we will be moving to the country soon and can only get satalite internet. Do you know if this will work with it? Thanks Lauren :)

hi Lauren! we have Time Warner..and we are literally the last house that gets it. i think they kind of shuffled around the papers so they could have it out here. but it's superfast and we normally dont have any service problems. i dont know about satellite.. be sure to ask the provider. i think there might be something about the data packages they offer? but i honestly cant remember. i dont know if this is also a concern for you... but our cell phone service is horrible. we have to go outside and stand in the driveway to get calls. txts seem to work just fine tho. it's very irritating - no one believes you that the calls are so bad and if you are on the phone with the bank and a herd of geese go by... well they either laugh at you or ask if you are at the zoo.

Thank you so much for the information :) last time I checked we are four miles from the end of the line, one day maybe... LOL yes cell service is a challenge but we get a little spotty service. Like you our driveway gets the best reception, so visitors get told to head outside by the third pine tree, it's a sweet spot :)
