Check the list of supported devices to see if your Sony TV is listed. You don't stream from your Kindle Fire to the TV, the TV would stream directly from Amazon. Here's the list: http://www.amazon.com/gp/video/ontv/devices

If you have a 1st generation Kindle Fire HD you can connect to your HDTV with an HDMI cable.

If you have a Kindle Fire HDX, you can stream to a Miracast equipped TV or buy a Miracast adapter.

Why bother? Are you going to try to watch the TV, and the Kindle, at the same time? Why not just get a Roku box, or a video game console (Wii, PS, X-Box), and use that to stream to the TV? A new Roku, or a used PS3, or such, should cost very little.

Currently, the Roku 1, and Roku LT, are selling for $49.99. The Roku 2 is selling for $79.99, and the Roku 3 is selling for $99.99. I have a Roku 3, and very occasionally stream from it/my internet to my HDX, to watch on the HDX while not near the TV. Usually, I stream from the Roku to the TV, and just watch the TV.

There are many things you can watch with Roku that do not require a paid subscription. Clearly Netflix is not one of those - to watch Netflix on any device, you need a Netflix subscription.

There are two things you need: a TV with an HDMI input, and a broadband Internet connection. Connect these things up, sign in, and explore. Have fun! Roku is a really cool thing.

I have two Roku's. They both came with composite video/analog audio (red/white/yellow) cables so I could hook one of them up to my older TV that does not have HDMI.

The Amazon Instant Video app is on Roku so you can stream from Amazon. There are other channels you can choose. Some are free, many require a subscription.

Hook the Roku up to the TV, and follow instructions. Some 'channels'-such as Netflix, Hulu Plus, etc, do cost on a monthly basis. Others like 'Crackle' do not cost. You never have to subscribe to any channels...unless you want to watch them. I have a Roku, and subscribe to: Netflix ($7.99 / month), Hulu PLus ($8.99 / mo.), Amazon Instant Prime (which costs $79.00 up front in one payment to Amazon for a year of Prime. That works out to $6.60 per month, and gets you free 2 day shipping on prime items purchased on Amazon). I also have Acorn ($2.99 / mo). I also watch freebies such as: Crackle, Le Gourmet Tv, and TED. There are also some Pay Per View channels, as well as some Pay Per View shows on subscribed channels. Most of the free channels have mainly older movies, and TV shows...from: This Island Earth, and The Gods Must Be Crazy, to Bonanaz.
