HD and 4k playback, with good surround audio support. I have no trouble 
getting content. I still record a lot of TV but would also like to be 
able to play 4k media. I have Firestick 4ks on every TV. And leanfront 
just isn't quite a viable option because we watch live tv and flip 
channels a lot.
