The streaming devices I just mentioned range from $40 to $120 depending on the specific model and features (e.g. the cheaper Fire TV stick is wifi-only, whereas Fire TV cube has an option for ethernet cable).

FireTV is great. Get the larger box and not the stick though. Same for Roku. The sticks take longer to start up and to load whenever you want to watch something, and the price difference isn't that much.

is this what you're refering to?

I did cancel cleaning lady this week, she came two weeks ago. She's illegal so it was hard to figure out how to pay her - I had to ask her to have her daughter explain Zelle lol

My place is going to be a disaster when she comes next.

I just did the same. Feel bad because I think she’s desperate and offered to wear masks, gloves, shoe protection, etc., but I still said no way.

Letting the cleaners in for sure. Also need some plumbing work done. Because the cleaners broke something.

If you do feel bad, you could possibly find a way to keep paying her what you would pay her regularly during the crisis, and perhaps she "owes" you the work when things open up again. I see a lot of discussions about this kind of thing on my city's subreddit - people are wanting to find a way to keep funding services that they don't want to see go under.

Yes, that's the Fire TV cube.

Personally I prefer the Roku's interface and remote, after having used an older version of the Fire TV box. Now I'm using the 2019 model of the Roku Ultra, currently selling for $84 (https://www.amazon.com/Roku-Streamin...dp/B07WVF9SL5/).
