This 6ft cable was cheaper than the local stores. I bought the cable for my 7" 32gb Kindle Fire HD. The cable connects directly to the Fire HD and the TV...its that simple! Turn on both and enjoy Hi Def on your big flat screen TV. YES the streaming of videos work on it, too. NOTE OF CAUTION: before disconnecting the cable turn the Kindle Fire HD off (shut down) as the sound will MUTE. If you forget....same thing power down the Fire HD. Also, some Apps or Games may show up on the TV sideways and rotating the Kindle may not always help. Aside from that works GOOD and the Res @ 720p for my Fire HD is GREAT!!!
