    I have an older Panasonic TV that is not a smart TV, but it has the gadget that lets us get Netflix through our Wi-Fi.
    We have Amazon Prime, can we get Amazon TV on this set?

    Thanks,

    What device are you using for Netflix? Most of those devices support multiple services, but without knowing which type we can't answer that.

    Amazon Firestick.

    Why not google something like this?

    Who needs Google when you have Rondogg at your service....

    Yeah you should be able to use an Amazon Fire stick, however if you're in a hurry or don't want to spend money on that you could also plug your laptop into the TV and mirror the screen. That is, assuming you have a laptop with HDMI out.

    Also any recent video gm system has the ability to DL the Amazon app and stream it that way.

    It's a Pace Model PX001NDT with HDMI.

    I get better answers here rather than having to sort through the crap on Google. Plus I won't get bombed by ads selling electronic parts and stuff.

    I'll buy a Firestick if I have to but I'd like to see if I can get it trough this Pace thingy.

    I'm 71 years old and never had a video game in my life.

    I'm going to call my cable company. I'll let you guys know.

    Thanks.

    We use the Firestick and Roku. My oldest Roku will not work with Comet TV..

    You can mirror the computer screen you are looking at today to most modern smart TVs, Roku boxes, Fire Sticks, and Google Chromecast by pressing the windows key and p at the same time. Any TV you can connect to will show up under "Connect to a wireless display". Select "Duplicate Screen". Good luck!

    Sounds like you have MediaComm with a Tivo box? If so, this is what I found....

    We appreciate your feedback and are happy to inform you that (Amazon Prime Video) is being added with the next update being pushed through on our TiVo equipment over the next few days.

    Roku has an interface that is easier to use than the firestick. Something to consider if your not tech savvy.

    Ditto^^ I do like the Roku interface a lot better than the Firestick but I still use both.

    You can side load Kodi on the Firestick, but I don't bother - too much to watch already.

    I assume you have HDMI?
