Question about the Firestick. I like to leave the TV on if I'm away for a few days. Is there a way to make the Firestick to continuously run? It always shows either a few episodes of a given show, or if I leave it on a live news channel, it will eventually pop up saying, "Do you wish to continue watching" and will just end up I guess going into sleep mode, basically a blank screen.

Try putting it on YouTube. Not YouTube TV, just YouTube.
I notice that during the day when I putter around inside the house, I just put YT on music and it just plays music videos until I shut it off…Other than that, IDK ‘cause I’ve never tried what you’re asking.
Or fix-it videos, car repairs, wrist watch review videos etc. It’ll just keep playing.

"Are you still watching?" and the playback pauses.
^^Yes this. This is what I'm trying to avoid happening. I want it to play/broadcast continuously while we're away from the house.

And nope, no cable here. I had Directv, and cut the cord a couple years ago.

I guess that I haven't noticed this. Probably due to not having it on long enough?
Also during the home choars, I may not even realize how often I use the remote or change stations.

In a major metro area a $10-15 set of rabbit ears should get you at least 20 channels. I have 5 sets in my house. One is for FM reception on my stereo receiver. My favorite is the RCA models on Amazon or e-bay. Just type RCA rabbit ears.
