The Amazon Fire Stick is a magnificent device. It's an HDMI device that plugs directly into your tv and can stream a lot of media. The following is Amazon's description of the Fire Stick:
Like all electronics, once it is modded, or in this case "jail-broken" so much more is possible. In the case of the Fire Stick, being jail-broken is having Kodi installed on the device. Here is an eBay description of what happens when Kodi is installed:
"This Jailbroken Fire TV Stick will save you tons of money on your high priced cable bills, Netflix, Hulu, etc.!!!
This Amazon Fire TV Stick was only opened to add Kodi (XBMC) and is BRAND NEW.

This device is untethered so it is just plug and play. Simply connect to HDMI and Wi-Fi, log into Amazon and you are ready to go!
