Jon, you inspired me to do something about my network here - the WiFi viewing network that uses Amazon Fire sticks. I've seen information lately about local television broadcasts over WiFi, so today I researched it and added the Local Broadcast "Locast" app to the Fire sticks in two rooms. I had to go through and select my favorite channels and once it was set on one television I just had to download and activate the app on the next set. I'll have to repeat that on each set with a fire stick (they're all through the house.) It's free to use but the site asks for donations, so I'll send in a modest account. I think it is a setup that can stream broadcast channels in certain communities. The thing about this is that in a couple of rooms in the house the outside HD antenna doesn't pick up one of the major networks, but I'll be able to stream it through the WiFi, so the most practical application of this is to get that last local channel to play in those rooms.
