Hello Dotty,

I don't have a lot of experience with the Fire TV Stick, but the Fire TV Cube has worked well for me. I also have gotten good reports from my daughter's family and my Aunt in handling the apps it supports, such as Netflix or Prime

You might want to try ordering one and return it if it doesn't work well for you.

I would suggest for any "voice control" system that the microphone needs to be close to the person speaking. That is why they all put microphones on the remote.

But that really defeats the "hands-free" feature of Alexa.

If you are interested, I can post some information on how to "link" an Echo Dot to act as a hands-free microphone for your Fire TV Cube or Fire TV Stick.

That way you can place the Echo Dot near where you sit and just speak the TV commands to it
