Fire Stick Series 2 - Misconceptions for Old Folks with high tech toys. (#1) You can not get Local Live TV Programming with a Fire Stick. You need an Antenna for that. (#2) You can not operate your TV or your Fire Stick by talking to your Amazon Alexa Echo or Dot. (#3) Your Fire Stick will operate by using your Remote Control and pressing the microphone button while speaking to the remote. That was my biggest mis-understanding. I was expecting that I could operate my Fire Stick by speaking to my Alexa Dot, without having to use a remote - No Way Jose. If somehow I find out that this post is wrong, I will remove it, but information about these features needs to be a bit more precise.
