i know the roku ultra will work on any tv with an hdmi port—but what about smart tvs? will it work on smart tvs?
Of course it will. Some of the channel apps on the Roku may duplicate the ones implemented on your tv, but in many cases they are not exact duplicates. Features and controls may be different, so try them both and see which you prefer to use.

I've even plugged a Roku Ultra into a Roku TV. The only problem is keeping the remotes straight.
You can connect a Roku player to any TV with an HDMI port as long as it supports 720p, 1080p or 2160p resolution. There's some early TVs that had HDMI ports but only supported 540p and 1080i via HDMI, but those are getting quite old now and it's unlikely many are still around. Your FireTV most certainly will accept 720p, and highly likely 1080p as well.
