Q&A > Should I Throw Out My Sludgy Fire TV Stick?
Fire TV

Send us your most pressing TV viewing questions via email so we can answer them in an upcoming issue.

This week's question comes from Calvin who says, "My Fire TV stick has gotten really slow and buggy. Should I toss it and buy a new one?"

If Calvin bought his Fire TV stick within the last 3-5 years, and especially if it was a higher-end model, he shouldn't throw it out just yet.

Unlike many other streaming TV platforms, Fire TV devices require some periodic maintenance to keep them running at peak efficiency. This is due to a buildup of cached data which can clog the device's already small amount of storage.

Regularly clearing the cache of apps giving you trouble and removing old apps you don't use anymore is a good start. If that doesn't do the trick, a factory reset can also help.  

Have a question about cord cutting that you'd like answered? Send us a note and you may see your question in an upcoming issue of On TV This Week!
