Happy Friday Cord Cutters!
This week we have a Q&A on what to do before gifting old gadgets, post-Prime Day deals, short cuts, must-see TV, and more!
As always, if you know of someone who might need some insight or help with cutting the cord on cable or satellite, please forward our newsletter, or use the handy share buttons at the top of this email.
OK... now let's get to it!
Q&A > What Should I Do Before Gifting My Old Streaming Device?
This week's question comes from Henry who says, "I upgraded to the Amazon Fire TV 4MAX during Prime Day and I'd like to gift my old Fire TV stick to a neighbor. Is there anything I should do like clearing out apps beforehand?"
When you upgrade to a newer streaming device, gifting your older model to a friend or family member so they can explore whether cord cutting is right for them is a great idea.
However, before gifting, trashing, or recycling ANY electronic gadget, you should take the quick and simple step of factory resetting the device.
Not only will this remove your account logins, personalization, financial, and other data for safety's sake, but it will make it easier for recipients of your second-hand gear to get the device up and running on their own television and home network.
