Before we buy

For the streaming stick+, what are we plugging into the back of the TV? There is not a lot of room back there btwn the TV and the wall and we need to know it will fit. Is there the stick AND a power cable to the stick? The video is unclear. Thanks.

Re: Before we buy

The Stick+ has the hdmi connector built-in so the stick+ itself is directly connected to the tv. You can get a hdmi extender, even look for one with right angle if its that close. The AWR(advanced wireless receiver) attaches to the stick+, then usb extender attaches to the AWR and usb ac adapter that plugs into the wall outlet. It uses usb extender because the AWR is very short, you could exchange the usb extender in the line of cables for the Hdmi extender, having the AWR attach directly to the usb ac adapter.  

Usually its:

ac adapter> usb extender> AWR> Stick+> Tv

With hdmi extender instead:


ac adapter> AWR> Stick+> Hdmi extender> tv
