Can you wirelessly stream hulu Amazon prime etc from an HDX instead of buying a roku? Tv is Panasonic plasma with Ethernet cable for Amazon.

Evil Entity - You'll need to have a Micacast compatible device. If your TV isn't so enabled, you'll need to get an adapter of some sort similar to this:

NETGEAR Push2TV Wireless Display HDMI Adapter with Miracast (PTV3000) Certified for use with Kindle Fire HDX

I don't know if you can stream Hulu. Some mobile apps won't allow it.

For my money, a Roku is a much better deal.

We've had several Rokus for a few years. They are fantastic little devices and are great for easily watching a variety of streamed content. There are many "channels" available.

The Netgear Push2TV device is a totally different thing (apples & oranges) but also fantastic! It mirrors your HDX screen. Whatever you are looking at/watching (video, books, games, websites... Whatever is on your screen will be pushed to the TV.

Which device to choose really depends on what you want to do with it. A Roku must have a WiFi connection while the Push2tv can stream (pre) downloaded content without being connected to a network and will mirror streamed content and websites if your HDX is connected to WiFi.

Hubby & I both just upgraded our Kindle Fires to the HDX version and were planning a 10 day vacation to our Cabin. While I've figured out a way to get a WiFi signal from the golf course 2 miles away, it's not strong enough to stream anything. That's where the Push2TV device came in handy! (It's a little smaller than a Roku). We both filled our tablets with downloaded movies and TV shows from Amazon (both free Prime and paid) and downloaded available content via the Xfinity TV app and we were able to enjoy movies and TV episodes without needing a WiFi connection. Check out both websites and reviews for both items here on Amazon to better determine what will work best for you.
