Amazon Fire TVs can now automatically connect to Wi-Fi without you needing to enter your Wi-Fi password

Amazon Fire TVs have long offered to save your Wi-Fi password to Amazon, but they haven’t been able to retrieve that password until now. New Fire TV devices sold by Amazon that ship with the new software update pre-installed will be the first to take advantage of Wi-Fi simple setup. Since it has to be a device loaded with the update from the factory, that limits the feature to existing models, which include the Fire TV Stick 2, Fire TV Stick Basic Edition, Fire TV Cube, Fire TV Stick 4K, and future models. The device has to also be purchased from Amazon, since those devices come pre-registered to the buyer’s Amazon account, which then allows it to pull down the customers stored Wi-Fi password during its initial setup. – Elias Saba, AFTVnews »

Cable and satellite TV sinks again as online streaming soars

DIRECTV and DISH made up some of their subscriber losses by nudging customers toward the online versions of their services. DirecTV Now—AT&T’s online version of DirecTV—gained 436,000 subscribers in 2018 to move up to a total of 1.59 million. Dish-owned Sling TV gained 205,000 customers, achieving a total of 2.42 million. Despite being delivered over the Internet, both DirecTV Now and Sling TV are linear pay-TV services that are similar in function to traditional cable and satellite TV. – Jon Brodkin, Ars Technica »
