Amazon Firestick: only works with mains?!

Posted 4th Oct 2016
Evening all,

Trying to get my head around the Amazon Firestick, done well so far and looking to hook the family up with a couple to save them on movies/sports from Sky.

One problem....

I thought they could be powered by inserting the USB into a spare USB socket in the tv without the need for the mains adapter and a plug socket?

Am I barking up the wrong tree? Or is this actually possible and I'm missing something obvious?
