If you are tired of TV you must watch TED. It is new, exciting, and different from anything you have ever watched. Your mind will be blown away and your heart will skip a beat. On Amazon you can chose the topics you like or click just watch anything and get to some eye openers you would never think to watch. I am a senior citizen and find this information and technology fascinating and makes me wish I could experience the plans and activities these people are crafting for our children and grand children's future. Don't watch it at your risk.
We enjoy watching random TED. The topics are focused and most often offer insight, knowledge and conversation. The average length seems around 20 minutes, they are commercial free and thanks to Amazon, they readily accessible anytime without the headaches other online sources sneak in.
This is sort of an unfair review of TED Talks the Conference Provider (5 Stars - Controversial and enlightening). This is a review of the TED App and mechanism (Fire TV) used to watch TED Talks. I downloaded the TED App onto my Fire TV box. I have been enjoying the Curiosity Stream Videos just fine. However, when I tried the TED App I would get constant interruptions to download - because of "Network Error". I ran an experiment to eliminate various variables to reception. I used my desktop computer (intel i7 -fast) also wireless on the 5 GHz band as my Fire TV Box with 128G Memory Upgrade for Buffering, both in the same room. Both also on a 5 MBPS twisted pair internet provider feed (bandwidth concern). My PC with some video fades watched the same TED Talk all the way through without loading pauses. This leads me to conclude that there needs to be work on the TED App as far as the algorithm used for compression. Older U Tube videos also had the same issues. And Yes I do need a Fiber Backbone upgrade for Bandwidth when it is available too.
I subscribed, and watch a new video every day. Most are great. In all the time I've watched I have only bailed on maybe 4 of 'em. Serious brain food. Widely varying topics, playlists, speakers... 99.99% great!
TED talks are always interesting, informative, and numerous. I always enjoyed listening to them on NPR, and now I can see them as well, anytime I want! I only wish they were categorized as to subject, that would make selecting a talk easier.
Allows you to quickly watch TED talks, which are amazing and truly life-changing videos if you take time to hear them, consider them, appreciate them, and apply them to your life. I highly recommend this app and TED talks in general.
TED borders on being additive. Hard to stop once you start. I was surprised that the music presentations interspersed among the serious ones were so good. They were were like a needed intermission, that was quite refreshing.
