Amazon Fire TV Cube – For the ‘Yells at the TV’ Dad:

With a voice-enabled interface, dad’s penchant for talking to inanimate objects can be put to good use with the Amazon Fire TV Cube.

When he’s not yelling at a botched football play or missed call by a ref, he just has to tell the Fire TV Cube which streaming service or show he wants to watch instead of picking up the remote.

Thanks to its Alexa integration, the Fire TV Cube can also control dad’s smart home gadgets, even when the TV is off.

Amazon Fire TV Cube Streaming Player – $119.99 US

Budget-Friendly Alternative: The Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K MAX has fewer features, but is still a solid way for Dad to get started with streaming for $54.99 US

Sling Subscription – For the ‘Gotta Have Sports’ Dad:

For just $30/month, Dad can tune into ESPN, ESPN 2 and ESPN 3, as well as hockey and basketball on TNT, college sports on Stadium and more without paying for cable TV.

There’s even 50 hours of cloud DVR space included!

Sling Orange – $35/month (no contract)

Budget-Friendly Alternative: ESPN+ doesn’t offer Sportscenter or a live stream of the main ESPN channel, but does offer NHL and MLB games, soccer, golf and college sports for just $6.99/month.  

Over-the-Air TV Antenna – For the ‘Throwback TV’ Dad:

If the dad in your life spends a lot of time commuting, travelling for work, or just running the kids back and forth to soccer practice, he probably doesn’t get to enjoy his favorite shows live.

A storage-included Tablo Over-the-Air DVR will record and even stream his favorite broadcast TV programs live to his tablet or smartphone, so he can watch them at lunch at work, at the airport, or in the backyard while he’s grilling.

The Tablo QUAD 1TB has up to 700 hours of onboard recording storage and can record up to four of his favorite shows at the same time so he won’t miss a thing.

Tablo QUAD 1TB OTA DVR – $219.99 US (regularly $239.99 US) through June 8th
